FP Badminton & Floor Hockey

January 24, 2016

Dear Parents,

School sports are valuable opportunities for the students and something that we aspire to develop and support within the FP.  

FP Athletics opportunities are intended to run at three times throughout the school-year:

Fall Season - approx. September-November

Winter Season - approx. December-March

Spring Season - approx. April-June

Our current opportunities for FP Athletics are FP Badminton and FP Floor Hockey.  

What: Badminton and/or Floor Hockey.  These offerings will be available to girls and boys from G1-G5.  Students can choose one or both.  Students will practice skills while learning the fundamentals of the game.  The focus is on fun, fitness, and sportsmanship.  Students will practice and scrimmage, each week.  If we have enough participants and enough interest, then we would like to eventually play ‘friendlies’ (fun/sportsmanship-focussed games) against other international school teams, but that is an end-goal and dependent upon having enough players and availability.

When: Winter Season; each sport will start right after the Seollal Break and will finish right before Spring Break.

Badminton will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:15-5:15.          Feb. 11-Mar. 24 (15 classes)  

Floor Hockey will be on Fridays, after school, from 3-4:30pm.          Feb. 12-Mar. 25 (5 classes)

Where: FP Gym

Who: supervising and coaching the students will be announced depending on the number of students playing. Mr. Hill, Mr. Parmar and Mr. Tronsgard are likely.
