Monday 16 March 2015 Thorndon School
Wet and wild weather in Wellington couldn’t keep the kids from Thorndon School away today! Getting 60 kids out onto the rink in half an hour is always a good challenge although it has made a huge difference now the kids can put on their own safety gear.
A great time was had by all the kids this week as they played their first games of SlapShot Hockey! SlapShot is to inline hockey what miniball is to basketball and flipperball to water polo. It is a simplified version of the game for beginners. The children wear basic safety equipment to enable them to get out onto the rink as fast as possible and maximise their hockey experience.
Special thanks to the teachers for making SlapShot so much fun for the kids today! Thank you to all our wonderful coaches and volunteers.
