Freestyle Football – Jul 21

posted in: Latest News, School Events | 0

Burford Primary School put the disappointment of England not quite winning the European Championship behind us by inviting World Record holder Jamie Knight in to school. Jamie wowed the children with his international renowned freestyle football skills which have been performed on Ireland’s got talent and at some of the biggest football stadiums across the world.

He began with a freestlye routine which included the two tricks that Jamie is a World Record holder in and a number of his other impressive athletic skills. This was followed by a workshop for all of the children, having a go at learning some of Jamie’s moves.

Our keen footballers were also able to sign up to a freestlye workshop at the end of the day, learning some more freestyle moves and gaining some advice on how to learn the moves quickly and more effectively.

It was great to see all of the children having a go at some of the incredibly difficult moves and we found we had a few freestyle naturals! The children also learnt the importance of discipline and perseverance, as Jamie spoke of the time he has to dedicate to his training to remain in the top 10 freestyle footballers in the world.
