Many students of all grade levels were asking when we were going to get to start hockey.  We are now into hockey.  Fourth grade works on being aware of how to get open to receive a pass (moving from behind a defender) with positioning, movement, and communication.  Puck handlers learn to look for teammates and beat defenders through teamwork.  Both of these skills reduces the amount of scrums that are prevalent in the 2nd and 3rd grade games.

We are touching on the concept discussed last year regarding Fitness Characters.  If your character means who and how you are when you are not being watched, then your Fitness Character is the person you are when you are involved in sports and working your body during our workouts.  You can strive to modify your character and strengthen it as that is what I hope for my students.
