One of Orewa College’s hockey teams got some tips from an expert when Black Stick Rose Keddell put them through some drills this month.
The Black Sticks defender spent more than an hour with the Orewa 2 team on the hockey turf at Metro Park East in Millwater. The session, on May 6, focused on individual and team skills.
Team manager Andrew Turner says Rose quickly identified areas each player should work on and was absolutely positive and encouraging in all aspects of the session.
“Every player walked away having learnt something new and feeling positive about their hockey,” Andrew says.
He says the team would like to thank Educare learning centres, which made the session possible through a fundraising effort run by the NZ Hockey Foundation.
