Nate's Hard Hitting Hockey Tips


I will teach you how to play the thrilling game of hockey
some of the things will be tactics and some will
be just telling you how to play.

1,How to hold the stick.
   first you need to hold
   your stick correctly
   to do that you need
   to put your hands
   on both ends of the
   grip.

2,How to dribble the ball.
    first you hold the stick
   correctly like before then
   you gently tap the ball
   repeatedly.


3,How to push the ball.
   first you put the head
   of the stick against the
   ball and push 

Those are the basics but when you master those
you can end up doing harder tricks like
Indian Dribble and you can Drag.Dont
try those straight up because it takes skill
to learn them.

Cross Country

Cross Country !!!

This term Tawa Intermediate did the challenging Cross Coutry
course it was filled with whirls and twists uphill and downhill see what I mean.

The race was about to start all the competitors were nervous.
all the syndicates were warming up.Everyody lined up in three
lines at the front were the people who were going hard in the
middle was the people who would keep up and stay near the middle
and at the back was the people at the back were the ones who
went slow.

The whistle blew we started to run in the first couple of minutes I was doing well but when we started to go on the flats.I started to slow down lots of people were passing me we were about to go up
the last hill this is what I was waiting for.I started running my hardest I started to lose energy but I couldnt give up.

Once I passed the finish line I felt tired and I felt like collapsing then I found out I came 73rd I was proud of
myself because I dont run much.
