The third annual Klein Road Elementary (KRE) Hockey Tournament was held Jan. 31. This tournament helps teach the importance of sportsmanship and working together.
For the first two weeks after winter break, all KRE students participated in activities during P.E. oriented for all hockey skills. Grades 2nd-5th then held a hockey draft in which they picked their teams. Each grade level created eight teams to play a round-robin tournament for two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, the teams with top records met in the championship.
“It was fun to see our kids work together and compete throughout the entire month of January,” said Nathan Novsek, KRE P.E. coach. “The event has evolved into something we never anticipated. Students discuss it year round and our younger kids count down the days until they can be a part of the KRE Hockey Tournament.”
According to Novsek, Championship Day has turned into quite the production with 100 screaming fans with rally towels as students run out of their locker rooms (equipment closets). Starting lineups are announced, and this year the honor choir sang the national anthem before the games.
“From draft day all the way up to the day of the championship, there is a buzz around the school. Every morning there is a line at the gym white board to check the hockey standings,” Novsek added. “Many kids may not get to experience this type of sporting event as a player, so we try to make it as fun and memorable as possible.”
