The Oklahoma City Barons, in conjunction with the Oklahoma City Police Athletic League are hosting the first ever floor hockey session finals on Thursday, October 11 in the park located on the southwest corner of Reno and Hudson. The game begins at 11 a.m.
The finals pit Stanely Hupfield Academy against Van Buren Elementary. This game is the culmination of a five-week program orchestrated by the Oklahoma City Barons hockey team and P.A.L.S program. Each school has worked on the basics of the sport of hockey including positioning, how to pass and shoot and most importantly, teamwork.
Floor Hockey is newest P.A.L.S certified sport. Using equipment and time donated by the Oklahoma City Barons, the program continues to provide the instructors knowledge about hockey so they can introduce participating schools to the sport. This fall, the program is expanding to include two additional schools.
