There are many perks to being apart of a Sports Changes Life Ehoops group. We as Victory Scholars get to meet great groups of kids, participate in multiple sports, take part in highly educational workshops, and one can’t forget free pizza. On top of all of that, we get to enjoy great trips!
Recently with the Carnmoney Soccer team (one of the multiple Ehoops groups we work with), we were able to go to Escarmouche Action Park. The Escarmouche Action Park is an outdoor adventure park where individuals can take part in team building, mock military drills, paintballing, laser tag, and much more! Us and the Carnmoney team were scheduled to take part in some team building and laser tag, it’s safe to say we were in for a good time.
Now for those reading, who don’t know me personally, I’m gonna let you know I am EXTREMELY competitive. It most of my life my competitiveness has proven to be one of my biggest strengths, but in situations that are just for a bit of craic, it can be a bit … much. However, knowing this about myself did not stop me one bit from trash-talking my fellow scholars before we even left for the park. I trash-talked everyone! But It didn’t matter who ended up on my team because I knew my team was going to win.
With that being said, it was nice to see I wasn’t the only super competitive one. All the girls got stuck in and we had a great time! Unfortunately, the Carnmoney girls came to play and I was shot out at the beginning of every match. Disregarding my poor performance, it was amazing to see how well the girls work together. You could easily tell that the girls have developed great chemistry for being on the field together. By the end, I hope the work they’ve done during Ehoops has brought their tight-knit group even closer together.
