Over 50 children attended the final day of hockey training at the Phoenix Hockey Schools Academy.
Sponsored by Chelsea FC and England Hockey, coaches from Phoenix HC are supporting PE teacher Ann Dean in developing hockey at Alec Hunter school, Braintree. The group have attended training sessions during the winter and played a series of matches in their final session this March.
Chelsea Community Sports Partnership Coordinator Thomas Gooder presented the teams and players with awards and Chelsea t shirts. "We were very pleased with endorsing this rapidly growing initiative by supporting the coaches at Phoenix".
Ann Dean was also pleased with the progress being made in hockey at Alec Hunter. "The children have improved well, and we are very keen to build on Chelsea's support to develop the sport at Alec Hunter".
