The Athlete Development Academy have headed out to learn how to Ice skate and play ice hockey-all in one day!

There were many falls and bruises, but the ADA students picked themselves up, brushed themselves off and tried over and over again.

Before long, all the students had picked up a new sport.

Every student can bring the skills they have learnt on the ice to their chosen athletic fields; whether it is on the football oval, athletics track or dance studio.

Some of these skills include balance, maximising speed through quick foot recovery and arm movements, agility, turning and pivoting using deep knee bends, puck control, stick-handling, as well as aiming and shooting and best of all teamwork!
