My son just finished his very first season of Floor Hockey. The season started in September and we did months and months of practices, a game every week and exercises to get him to the last game of the season.
Kids against the Parents.
Sounds comical right?
Only when hubby winds up on the bench then it’s freaking hysterical.
Here’s how the night went.
Started off with the dad’s talking strategies against their 6 and 7 yr old sons Or perhaps they were just using the sticks for balance. Who knows.
Of course no Hockey game that includes dads starts out should ever start without his aunt giving him a lecture on playing fair, being nice, let your son win, don’t take him out at the knees, … blah blah blah
The kids played their hearts out and let me tell you they whipped the adults 4-2. The energy that it takes to run back and forth and chase the puck… short winded even me. Which is probably why my kid lost 7 lbs this season.
Hubby was making fun of me for not wanting to get out on the floor and I decided the 2nd quarter I’d make my move. I hadn’t run the floor much less ever played hockey but I was willing to give it a try.
I believe the coach accused me several times of using the Hockey stick like a broom. Hey You use what you know!
Sweeping is what I know.
The best part of the game was when Hubby was thrown out for high sticking!! For your reward 1 minute in the Penalty box.
Way To Go Dad!
We absolutely loved having our son in Floor Hockey and their team was undefeated!! We can’t wait to sign up both boys next season. They should be on the same team which will make it much easier on us and not to mention an experience I’m sure we’ll all remember.
Does your child play sports? Is it through the park district or school program?
