Kate Richardson-Walsh visits Rishworth School

Rishworth School was very lucky to be paid a visit by former Hockey Olympian Kate Richardson-Walsh. The day was kindly provided by Squadkit and Kate is a Squadkit Performance Director.



The rest of the day was spent with open Q&A sessions for all age groups from Year 7 to 10, training for squads from U12’s to Seniors and invitation to other local schools to also come in and meet her and of course, hold a gold medal!
Heathfield, the Junior School to Rishworth, hockey players had their own slot to meet Kate and get photos and signatures.


Kate said – “If I could give you anything, I’d give you a shot of confidence. Don’t say I can’t do that – say I can’t do it, yet. Ask why not me, instead of saying that will never be me”.



Linda Wood, Rishworth Teacher in charge of hockey said, “She was truly inspirational – amazing with all students of every age; genuinely interested in meeting them and making them better.
An incredible hockey legend.“
