Kilkenny College Hockey Dept was delighted to welcome Irish and World number one goalkeeper David Harte to the college last Thursday. David was here as a Guest Speaker for Tranisition Year where he spoke on succeeding at the highest level of his chosen sport. This was followed by a Q&A with the students.
With 203 caps to his name, his presentation was warmly received by the audience where it transcended sport. Later on in the day David met the junior goalkeepers where the girls and boys were given masterclass from a player who is at the very top of his game. This was followed with a session with the senior ‘keepers'. Again David was very generous with his time and expertise.
Despite the bitterly cold conditions David took all the ‘keepers through various drills and spoke about the psychology of goalkeeping. David has been voted World Goalkeeper of the Year for the last two years and has been nominated again this year. You can vote for David at the following link http://www.fih.ch/global-stars/hockey-stars/2017/goalkeeper-of-the-year/.
The very best of luck from all at Kilkenny College to the following players who partake in the Interprovincial Hockey Championships this weekend.
