The Polish team used today’s rest day to conduct a hockey clinic for more than 80 kids from the Pahang region in Malaysia. After finishing their morning training session, the Polish team went to a local school where they spent an hour teaching a group of talented young Malaysian hockey players.
The clinic started with an intense warm-up programme which was prepared by the team’s physical education coach. The session included fun games as well exercises to improve strength such as push-ups or squats.
Afterwards the kids were divided into smaller groups. These groups all competed against each other in a six-station circuit. Each station was made up to improve a certain skill such as goal scoring, dribbling, defending, passing, one-on-ones and tip-ins. The effort paid off as the students were eager to learn and enthusiastic throughout the session.
The whole group enjoyed themselves and kept on asking for even more entertainment. The students made friends with the Polish team members and promised to support Poland in all their upcoming matches at the Pahang Hockey Champions Challenge 1 in Kuantan.
