Did you know? In December 1891, at the International YMCA Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts, the school’s director gave physical education teacher James Naismith two weeks to come up with an indoor winter game to challenge a class of future Y directors. Naismith hung peach baskets to the bottom of a second-level running track and taught the men his new game: basketball. Today, basketball is second only to soccer as the most popular sport in the world.

INDOOR HOCKEY LEAGUE
Ages 4-12  |  January 9 - February 27  |  $60M/$85NM  |  Central
Learn to play one of the fastest games in the world! This action-packed class will emphasize the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship while teaching the basic skills of passing, shooting, stick handling, and much more! In addition to the physical gains associated with hockey, there is also something to be said for the mental health benefits that come with playing the game. Exercise itself can improve your mood because of the endorphins that are released. As a form of exercise, floor hockey provides this benefit, but there’s an added brain boost that comes with the sport as well. Floor Hockey demands good decision-making, and honing these skills can also be transferred to everyday life.

Children must bring shin guards. Games will be held on Saturday afternoons. REGISTER ONLINE or with our front desk at 630-552-4100.
