Extra places available for juniors to sign up for unique session with England star

By Niall Couper

Olympic gold medallist Lily Owsley will be hosting four sessions at Eltham College on 12 May for our juniors £15 per child

A few extra places have been made available for our youngsters for our one-off training session with England hockey legend Lily Owsley on 12 May at College Meadow.

The England international was part of Great Britain’s Olympic gold-medal winning team in Rio in 2016 and is now a key member of the nation’s team in this summer’s FIH Pro League.

The timings of the training four sessions with Lily have changed slightly. They are now:

· 12-12.55 for under-8s (eight spaces available)
· 13-13.55 for under-10s (waiting list in operation)
· 14.10-15.05 for under-12s (one space available)
· 15.10-16.05 for under-14s and under-16s (waiting list in operation)

We are restricted to 20 places for each session costing £15 per child.

Sessions will include a brief talk on what it takes to be an international, what training internationals have to do, before taking the juniors on a typical training session scaled for their 'level'. The session will end with five minutes at the end for photos.

It is strictly on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested please email Niall Couper

We are also after a couple of parents to help Lily with the logistics on the day, including set up and taking photographs.
