Holland Sports Tour 2016

Posted on: 13/04/2016

During the Easter holidays twenty Year 8 & 9 boys went on a football tour to Valkenburg in Holland. It was an activity packed week with the boys playing matches against local Dutch sides, having professional coaching sessions (at some outstanding facilities) and playing in a tournament against other English schools. The 'A Team' had a very notable win against the Dutch side LHC, winning 10-2 and then finishing in second place in their tournament. The 'B Team' played against some very strong Dutch opposition but bounced back to finish in third place in their tournament. At the end of the week the coaches presented awards to their 'Players of the Week' which were won by Sam Hill and Ryan Page. 

In addition to the football, the Year 9 boys took on the Year 8s in a game of lazerquest in the caves at Valkenburg. They also visited a waterpark with slides and rapids, enjoyed a visit to a pancake house to sample some Dutch cuisine and explored Valkenburg to do some souvenir shopping. It was a great week away which provided the boys with some fantastic experiences and they were an absolute credit to the school.
