Hockey at Lee Valley

Fantastic day out for Hockey Club seeing how the pro's do it! #HWL2017 #learningfromthebest
 
On Thursday 22nd June Whitefield School hockey teams got the chance to watch some of the top international men's hockey teams play at the Lee Valley Hockley and Tennis Centre - the site of the 2012 London Olympic Games. 17 students came on the trip where they sat in the front row to watch Korea vs Scotland and Pakistan vs Argentina. The students were lucky enough to get some autographs with the Scottish players and all had the chance to try out their skills in the Hockey Hub. This included Teador beating Mr Eaton in the 1 v 1 ring. Both teams enjoyed the experience and were able to develop their understanding of the game along with a bit of history too such as the sport dates back to the 19th Century. Who knew?!
