Newcastle Football Foundation at Hillcrest School

20th March 2014

Newcastle Foundation at Hillcrest School.



Year 7 students at Hillcrest have been very lucky this term; they had the opportunity to participate in some football coaching from Newcastle United Foundation during their PE lessons with Mr. Hyslop.


The class has been building on and learning new skills which have put into good practice during competitive games.  Specific skills include dribbling the ball with control and coordination, team work, passing over short and long distances and shooting the ball.


The sessions will run every Tuesday afternoon until the Easter break in order to encourage the development of the fundamental stages of ‘grass roots’ football within Hillcrest School.
