Training with Team GB Hockey Player Georgie Twigg

Georgie Twigg offers training and inspiration to the Girls Hockey Team

 

After the success of the Malaysia tour, a continued “buzz” surrounded the girls as they arrived for pre-season at our new pitches and were met by GB and England Olympian Georgie Twigg, who was still on a high after securing Gold at the recent European Championships with England on sunday. The girls were put through their paces throughout the day in a variety of intensive drills and in addition Georgie shared her experiences as an international hockey player and gave some insightful advice on belief in a team in a Q & A session.

Gwyn Williams, Cheltenham College’s Head of Hockey commented, “To have this calibre of player present on the first day back is a tremendous experience for the girls, especially as 3 days ago Georgie helped England come back from 0-2 down to beat the Dutch for gold. I hope they have taken on-board  what Georgie shared and will use her visit and advice to inspire them as they prepare for this coming term. The girls have had a real insight into the demands of performance sport and what is needed to gain success, and can then relate this to what they will now experience in their fixtures.”
