State Standard: 1, & 3
|Equipment: 20 Plastic pins, Several gator-skin balls, Hockey Sticks (enough for two teams), and Poly Spots
|Purpose of Event: Using Long-Handled Implements while striking a Ball.|
|Time: 15-20 minutes|
Place 10 foam pins on each side of the gym on Poly Spots. Put several poly spots down the middle of the gym to separate into two halves. Description:
This is a modification to the regular game of floor hockey. Instead of the typical scoring (puck into a hockey net), players will try to knock over the other team’s pins while striking a gator-skin ball with their hockey stick! If a player strikes the ball and it knocks down a pin from the other team their team scores a point (I use a digital scoreboard). Once the pin is down it stays down!!!!! Once one team has knocked all the other teams pins down their team wins. Goalies are optional. If I do use a goal they must be in-between the pins to protect.
|Concerns: Be cautious when students are using their hockey sticks!!!
