OCRA is proud to support our local elite athletes of all ages and all sports. We will post news and results as we get them below.
Alex Cole – Inline Hockey – Jan 2018
For Inline Hockey, think ice hockey minus the ice and add inline skates. Alex has been playing inline hockey for just over 2 years and has already scored national success in 2017, to step up to international competition in 2018. He trains in Exeter with Exeter Storm – a senior team as they do not have enough children for a Junior team, Alex plays for two league teams; Windsor Knights, which is development team made up of children aged 6 -13; and Avalanche who have two teams in ages under 12 and under 14.
Avalanche won the national championship’s held at Bisley which means they are through to the European Championships in Denmark in June.
OCRA is supporting Alex with use of the sports hall for practice.
Adam Keats – Skateboarding – Nov 2018
In the last couple of months I have been competing at various events throughout Europe, including the Dew Tour stop in Barcelona, consistently finishing top 10 and always coming back fully motivated and driven to do better.
It has been amazing having access to the gym so that when I arrive back home I can bring the hype back with me and train harder than I ever used to. Getting up to swim every morning has helped me focus on moving forward and taking care of my body as skateboarding can seriously take it’s toll!
This weekend I am flying out to the Netherlands for the Vans Shop Riot European final with our shop team. Feeling really good and looking forward to it! I have been training recently to build up my stamina and ability to skate harder for longer, this really helps with competition skateboarding.
