Islanders Floorball Update - Winter 3 Update
JFK High School, Plainview, Monday, March 4, 2019

Despite shortened periods due to snow, JFK High School freshman managed to squeeze in some time for Islanders Floorball during gym class today. Today's class focused on a drill that incorporated passing, shooting, and communication skills. Starting on the goaline, students ran up to center court to curl around a cone and cut back towards the net. When cutting back they received a long pass from the opposite side of the goaline to then shoot on goal. Students were challenged to shoot as soon as they received the pass to build their quick-release skills. The drill was then altered by putting another offensive player on a lower faceoff circle and having the two players exchange a give-and-go to encourage movement with and without the ball. Students are excited to build their skills and begin game play soon!

Islanders Floorball Update - Winter 2 Update
PS 92 Brooklyn, Thursday, February 7, 2019

The Winter 2 session of Islanders Floorball continues at PS 92K Brooklyn. Class began with a review of safety rules and how to properly hold the stick before moving on to drills and games that focused on ball control and speed. First, the game "Red light, Green light" was played in which students had to listen to cues by physical education teacher, Tyana Hale, in order to move across the gym. "It's not a race," instructed Hale, "make sure you are under control." Students were challenged with listening to the correct cues in order to move forward. Those who did not control their ball on the "Red Light" cue had to start from the beginning. Next, the class played "First to Eight Relay Race" where students were tasked with collecting balls into their team's hula hoops from a larger pool. "A low athletic position! When stick handling instead of dragging and sweeping use both sides of the stick to move the ball forward," coached Hale. Students are excited to wrap up skills and get into game-play.
