Weekdays: 3:30pm - 4:30pm
All students are called down for Sockey during bus dismissal. The Sockey coaches (teachers) will be waiting in the gymnasium.
On Satudays, parents will have to provide transportation for drop off and pick up.
We do not keep score. Students play for the enjoyment of exercising, learning the game, and listening/dancing to great music.
All equipment is provided, including sticks! Just wear your sneakers!
YES! All coaches are WWP teachers representing every school where Sockey is played.
Coaches run a five minute warm up consisting of fun relay runs before the game begins.
All players are wearing a Sockey team shirt (blue or white) or a Sockey team pinnie.
Each team consists of two groups: One group is in the game on the main court and the other group (of teammates) are spread out on the sidelines keeping the ball in play. Everyone is ALWAYS in the action. If you are on the sideline and the ball comes to you, the job is to shoot the ball back
It is extremely difficult for the ball to go out of bounds. Sideline players are always there to keep the ball in play.
The game is played with a soft orange hockey ball (as seen in the Sockey logo).
We keep our sticks low at all times, close to the ground - no slapshots!
YES! Siblings can play on the same team!
A “Sockey Mix” of students favorite appropriate songs is played during the entire game!
YES! Players that are on the sidelines love to dance while waiting for the ball to come to them before it is their turn to get back into the game.
Coaches supervise a “face off” to begin every game, and after every goal is scored: Three gentle taps of the stick and then GO FOR IT!
A single whistle means to stop where you are, double whistle means to change shifts and take a break, and a triple whistle signifies a GOAL! GOAL! GOAL!
Of course! We encourage sportsmanship. In fact, both teams meet together at center court when the game ends for a “1,2,3 SOCKEY” cheer!
