At the start of the holiday the U16A side played host to a number of schools at the Independent Schools Hockey Festival held over Easter. The team played some exhilarating hockey to beat St Charles (4-2), Clifton (1-0) and York HS 3-1. However two of the most exciting matches were against St David’s which ended in a 2-2 draw, and on the last morning a hard-fought victory over Bishops (2-1).
The 1st XI enjoyed four days at the High Performance Centre (HPC) at Tuks, where they were exposed to the latest trends and drills from current SA National players Frank Pretorious and Nicolene Terblanche. The players had three hours of training in the mornings followed by afternoon matches. It was a highly successful trip.
To end, the 1st XI Kingswood festival was held this past weekend. After a full week of training at the HPC the boys were mentally and physically exhausted. However, this did not stop them from winning six out of their seven games, and drawing 1-1 in their remaining game.
Well done to all the boys who took part in these various festivals!
