The Volta Regional Hockey Association has donated Hockey equipment to the Agotime Senior High School (AGOSEC) team to aid their preparation towards this year’s Citizens International Inter-School (CIIS) Hockey tournament later this month.
The CIIS tournament is an annual event which allows schools across the country to battle for supremacy and laurels in Hockey at one venue.
Agotime SHS in the Kpetoe District, who will be making their maiden appearance at the CIIS tournament, see the presentation of the equipment as a major boost ahead of this year’s tourney which comes off on June 15-16. The surprised kind gesture had a short presentation ceremony at the School’s campus on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.
Chairman of the Volta Hockey Association, Johnson Ofori encouraged the team to go all out and make Volta proud at the tournament.
“Making your first appearance, I want you to go and make an impact. I believe your preparation is on course and you can upset other schools at the tournament. You have to be determined but not be intimidated.”
“I know most of you would like to join the security services and being a Hockey player gives you that guarantee,” he added.
Headmistress of the school, Mabel Asigbe expressed her appreciation to the Hockey Association for their support and encouraged her team to practise well to ensure victory.
“On behalf of the Hockey team, I want to say a big thank you to the Volta Regional Hockey Association for this gesture. I am really overwhelmed at this gesture you have shown to us. We are really truly grateful. I would also like to motivate my school team to go and put up a good performance out there, so that the Association will be proud of us.”
The school’s Hockey Coach, Wisdom Ofori also promised all, that the equipment will be put to good use and that they will pull a big surprise at the tournament.
Peter Paul Osafo, the Regional Hockey Coordinator, added his voice with an advice to the students, to focus on their academics as well noting that sports moves together with Academics.
The Volta Regional Hockey Association during their May 12 Gala with Accra and Koforidua at the Ho Sports Stadium, received equipment from the Accra Citizens International Club and the National Coordinator, Dennis Ababio and have thus extended the gesture to Agotime SHS.
