This week in P.E. Mr. H is beginning his solo teaching. Scholars will being learning about floor hockey and other types of striking skills. The primary skill that we will be assessing will be the forehand shot/pass. Mr. H will also be teaching dribbling, sportsmanship, safety concepts, and the basic rules of hockey. Check out the breakdown of the forehand shot/pass below and the rubric that he will be using to assess students skills.
Grip- Should be wide with hands at least a foot apart. This will allow for the best control of the stick and also help keep the swing below the waist for maximum safety.
Stance- Student should be standing Sideways to the target. Feet shoulder width apart in an athletic stance.
Backswing- Helps provide power to the shot/pass but should be no higher than waist level.
Follow Through- After striking the puck, the stick should go no higher than waist level. Also the stick should be pointed at the target to help with accuracy.
