Interested in Octopush?

Dear All,

At our recent Sheaf Scout Splash events, we ran a taster session of Underwater Hockey – also known as Octopush

The session was run by our local club, The Sheffield Stingrays – also based at the Graves pool.  The kids who took part really enjoyed it, not least as it was a bit different.

The Stingrays have now extended an open invite to any older Scouts or Explorers who would like to have another go.  They meet every Friday at Graves between 8 and 9 pm and cater for boys and girls.

To find out more contact Phil Rhodes on / 07453 876867 … or just turn up on a Friday.
