Sunday was a busy day for the Academy as Storm Brian passed and the sun came out. The day started with our 1st – 6th class girls playing matches against their counterparts from Muckross. Then after our 1st and 2nd year girls trained it was the boys turn and we hosted our U8 Blitz. 16 teams from 7 different clubs took part and Rathdown was buzzing. At the same time on the other pitch our U12 boys hosted a team from Bray. Next up was a fantastic 18 team U10 Blitz with lots of future stars on display. Finally, the day was rounded off with U14 and U16 league games. Meanwhile over in St Joseph of Cluny our Intermediate girls hosted a team from Loreto. A huge thanks to our sponsor Lewis Motors, to all the clubs who took part, our coaches, our U16s who helped umpire the blitzes and to the parents who provided yummy sandwiches and treats to keep the energy levels up. Over 600 boys and girls playing hockey in Rathdown in one day – that has to be good!
