IT’S the final countdown for Bisley Primary’s top players as they gear up for Midlands Primary Schools Hockey Festival 2016 from July 22 to 24 at St Anne’s in Hilton.

Bisley is a designated hockey development school that has shown outstanding progress over the season with players selected for provincial squads.

“Now is the time to pit their skills against stronger competition. We have been blessed to secure tournament sponsorship from Quins Timber Fellers which has set us on a food path for festival success,” said Conor Killeen, Bisley Park head of sport

Binks Robertson, the tireless owner and head coach of Back2Basics Hockey Academy is the festival organiser.

“It is crucial that this age group is exposed to festivals and tournaments where the players as individuals and as teams can interact with experienced coaches and players who have been or are still playing provincially or for their country,” she said.

Quality coaches, umpires and player mentors have been sources to add value to the festival.

Participating schools include Bastion Primary, Bisley Primary, Clifton Prep, Virginia Prep, Our Lady of Fatima, St Stithians Prep, St Peter’s Girls Prep, Somerset House, Umhlanga College, Kenridge Primary, Howick Primary, Penryn Prep, Chelsea Prep, Treverton Prep, Pelham Primary and St John’s DSG.
