2019-20 Floor Hockey Season
Greetings floor-hockey (aka poly hockey) fans. Floor hockey is adapted from the game of ice hockey and played indoors on a gymnasium floor (which is why it is often referred to as floor hockey). The Stars host several teams, each composed of six players, including a goalie. As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level and age (athletes are not grouped by gender, though).
As floor-hockey is a TEAM SPORT, once the teams are formed only those players who plan to participate in the scheduled tournaments will be able to participate in the softball program. This allows the teams to practice together as a “team”, which is essential to competition. We look forward to another great season of practices and tournaments!
Welcome to another year of Floor Hockey. We look forward to another great season of practices, scrimmages, and tournaments! To allow the coaches to better prepare for possible scrimmages and tournaments, and to better organize practices, we ask that each participant in Floor Hockey COMPLETE the floor hockey registration form. Remember to include a check for $25 for the State Tournament.
When and Where
Wednesdays, beginning October 30
6:15 – 8:00 PM
Lincoln Center School (357 9th Avenue, South St. Paul)
- The doors to Lincoln Center will not open until 6pm again this year so the floors can be cleaned first! Practices will begin promptly at 6:15PM – please arrive at 6pm and immediately get ready to begin practice at 6:15pm!
- Athletes who are beginning players or who are still learning, MUST have their staff/parents stay at the field with them throughout the practice for safety reasons.
- If we do not have enough volunteers/coaches, then parents/staff will be asked to assist with their athlete’s team, so that we have enough help to accommodate everyone who registers. If we do not get help from parents/staff, we will need to limit the number of participants in Floor Hockey!
