Since the main hockey season finished I’ve been at a little bit of a loose end until May waiting for the summer league to begin. I decided to take up a new sport, Ultimate Frisbee and got to play one mixed tournament for a team called Light and Dark.
The way frisbee competitions work is that you are ranked to begin with and your aim is to improve your ranking. Unless you’re in the top 8 you can’t win. Light and Dark were ranked 20th and finished the tournament in 17th so we did quite well. I really enjoyed being more part of the playing compared to playing in goals all the time.
Summer league hockey itself has begun, I am playing for an Oxford Hawks team and we’ve won one and lost one while I’ve played. I’ve also played one mixed match for hawks and had a great time! I hadn’t played so well all season until I played men who would push me to be better! We played and lost 3-0 to the Oxford Uni team but I was happy because of my performance.
Last Thursday I also played in a Rush Hockey tournment with a team of my fellow Christians in Sport Academy team mates and we actually won. Rush Hockey is to introduce people to hockey so we had 3/7 hockey players in our team and our non hockey players were excellent! I think I’ve converted some to take up hockey again at uni! As captain me and the team picked up gold medals and water bottles! See our team above!
