Newcastle Eagles Roadshow and Coaching

2nd November 2021

Year 5 were treated to a visit from four of the Newcastle Eagles basketball team, who arrived for a 'Hoops 4 Health' roadshow.  The children practised and showed off their dribbling skills, thought about how they can value themselves and learnt about the importance of water in the environment and their bodies. 
It was great for the children to be able to talk to and get advice from someone they can look up to - and they had to look up quite a long way! 
The roadshow was followed by coaching sessions.  Sam, the coach from the Newcastle Eagles, really worked the children hard as they practised and developed their dribbling skills.  He showed them how to defend and attack, with lots of different drills and games.  By the end of the sessions, not only had they been given a good workout, but they had all managed to improve in some way.
