In partnership with United Learning’s Sports Ambassador programme, Rowan Preparatory School organised a very special U10 girls hockey workshop presented by GB and England hockey player Alex Danson at Rowan’s sports ground on Saturday 17 October 2015.
85 girls from a host of schools and clubs spent the morning honing their skills with expert tutoring. Alex is an ambassador for youth sport, and works with United Learning to embody the value ‘Respect’ and was delighted to have the opportunity to instruct at grass roots level. “It has been a pleasure coaching the girls, they were all engaged and the skill in the tournament was amazing.” she said.
The girls thoroughly embraced the morning and benefitted from Alex’s excellent coaching tips before moving on to a versatility tournament.
Susan Clarke, Headmistress at Rowan said “The girls have gained enormously from Alex’s knowledge and coaching style. The emphasis of the day was to be an inclusive event, the mixed versatility tournament brought out the best in team work. Thank you to Alex and the girls for making it such a special morning.”
