Landing Elementary School participated in the floorball hockey program presented by the New York Islanders outreach program, in collaboration with Generation Floorball, who provided the equipment for the mini-floorball unit.
The New York Islanders delivered New York Islander-branded pinnies—both white and blue—elementary-sized New York Islander hockey sticks and floorballs for the monthlong unit. Students learned and practiced various ice hockey skills in their physical education classes.
The unit kicked off with a visit by New York Islanders’ mascot Sparky, who stressed the importance of making smart decisions, eating healthy and staying active as well as treating others with respect. During this interactive assembly, the Islanders helped students realize why being committed to making good decisions is important in school and life.
In addition, the Islanders are rewarding students for working hard in school and earning good grades. Students applying for the free ticket program must show that they have received an “A” or moved up a letter grade in a subject, in order to earn two complimentary tickets to an Islanders game. Landing School would like to thank the New York Islanders and Generation Floorball for this incredible outreach program.
