- State and explain the positions in Hockey.
There are 4 positions; Goalie, defender, striker, and mid-fielder. The goalie guards the goal, of course, and make sure the puck doesn’t go past them. The defenders are the people who try to stop the puck from going to the goalie. They are the people who play further on the court. The strikers are the people who try to get the puck into the goal. So the “shooters”, the ones who try to score. The mid-fielders are the people who try to pass the puck back to the strikers if the puck crosses the half line.
- How do we keep safe during our games with sticks unit?
Don’t high stick. If you high stick, it can injure someone by hitting them.
- We played floor hockey, broomball, and scoopball explain what you liked about each game and what you didn’t like about each game.
In Hockey, I enjoyed passing the puck back and fourth or being able to shoot the puck into the goal (Which is a lot harder than expected). What I don’t like about hockey is that since the puck is so small, you end up with a bunch of people trying to get the hockey puck.
In broom ball, it was a little easier than hockey because the ball was bigger, but that meant that scoring was a lot harder, since the goalie would have an easier time trying to get it. What I don’t like about broom ball is the fact that it can get out of control. It’s really hard to hit the ball exactly where you want it.
In scoopful, I enjoyed it a lot because it was fun trying to catch the ball. It was pretty easy and I enjoyed this activity the most out of all of the activities. What I don’t like about it, is that I still have a hard time trying to catch the ball sometimes. Because it usually bounces off the racket.
- Which game did you enjoy the most and why?
The game that I enjoyed the most was scoopball. It was really fun because you had more control over the ball more than any other sport. Just trying to get the ball to stay in your racket, is pretty hard itself.
