This year’s In2Hockey competition took place on a damp, cold and windy Tuesday afternoon. Despite this, the enthusiasm, attitude and play that was on show was refreshingly upbeat and positive!
Six teams competed in this year’s finals with some excellent individual performances as well as some superb team performances on show to brighten up the day! Not only were the performances first class but the level of respect from all players, teachers, parents and officials deserved to be recognised through our spirit of the games award. One pupil from Lea lead by example in everything he did, ensuring that he thanked not only the officials, but the opposition and even their teacher after every match.
Janice (SSP Manager) ‘It was wonderful to see such a high standard of play and continued improvement in skill level year on year. I was also really struck by the excellent sportsmanship displayed by players, coaches, teachers and parents, especially on such a cold and grey autumnal evening.’
Mrs Simpson-Allsop (Osmaston CofE Primary School Teacher) ‘We really enjoyed the tournament and the organisation of the event was great, as usual.’
Mrs Reeves (Great Longstone CofE Primary School Teacher) ‘Thank you so much for yet another great tournament. It was as ever very well organised and the right level of competition and fun. The Sports Leaders were excellent and were extremely good and positive with the children.’
Students from Eyam:
‘It was challenging, wet and cold but this made us focus.’
‘We had no idea we’d done so well – it was such a surprise to be in the top 3 teams.’
