Katie Curtis is a 12-year-old pupil at St Faith’s School, Cambridge and a county cricketer, junior academy hockey player, national sprinter and a keen tennis player and netballer.




I have two hours of hockey with school and then go to my Cambridge & Coleridge Athletics club for an hour. Sometimes if my week proves a little busy this is the session I can miss as they are very accommodating about my sporting schedule.




I have to get up early to have my tennis lesson before school which is an hour long and always wakes me up for before my lessons as it is outside. A quiet day on the sporting front though.




Today I have hockey matches. We play Wisbech and beat them 4-0 which is a pleasing score but not as many as we would have hoped with the amount of pressure we exerted.




I have swimming in my PE lesson and netball activity at the end of school.  




I have hockey for an hour to finish my school week and my dream is to play for England one day.  After school I have cricket nets with my coach to practise with my new bat for about an hour. I only do the odd bit of cricket at this time of year but the excitement of having a new bat is too much.




Today I have a hockey tournament at St John’s playing for my school hockey team. This is a seven-a-side friendly school tournament. Our team win all four matches which is a great start to the season.




I have training with my hockey club Cambridge City for an hour and then progress into my county junior development centre session which is two hours. It’s all good fun and I enjoy my big Sunday lunch all the more.
