Floor Hockey Fun!

It’s floor hockey season at NMS!  In order to maximize the students’ activity time, two games are played at the same time.  Depending on the class, students may be put onto teams based on age, sex, competitive level, or it may just be done randomly.  Students are required to wear goggles when playing even though we enforce keeping your stick below your waist (high sticking) and keeping the ball below the crossbar of the net.  Additional protective wear is also recommended for students that choose to play goalie. Many of the fifth graders have wanted a turn to suit up and play goalie.  The goal is for each student who would like a turn to have one before the unit is over.  This has been an excellent unit to discuss sportsmanship and competitive levels. Check out our students in action!
