Park’s BMW Primary School Festival

The Park’s BMW School Primary School Festival Held on Tuesday and Wednesday this week celebrated the end of another term of Hockey Coaching as Part of the Park’s BMW School Coaching Programme. 

The festival involved numerous, round robin games to give the kids a chance to showcase all the skills learned over the last 8 weeks.  No scores were kept in any of the games but competition was fierce with many goals on display.  Although Tuesdays weather was wet to say the least, everyone enjoyed the festival.  Over the two days 350 children played their first Douglas Park BMW tournament, and look forward to many more in the coming years.  We hope to see many of the children continue to be active during the summer holidays and attend one of the 6 weeks of summers camps.

Thanks to Douglas Park BMW for their continued support of the School Coaching Programme.  Also thanks to all the schools, staff, volunteers and children who took part in the festival.
