Due to some facility conflicts at Armstrong, our adapted floor hockey training season schedule has been adjusted a bit. Please make sure you are using version 2 of the schedule, which is attached here. Please reach out to Jonah or Patrick with questions.

The MAAA and MSHSL have jointly decided to replace the 2020-2021 Adapted Floor Hockey regular season with a training season, just like we had during adapted soccer. With COVID-19 ramping up around the state, leaders within both groups felt the best way to keep our athletes and families safe is to eliminate competitions and travel, but still allow teams to gather on their own terms, in small groups for training sessions. At this time, Governor Walz has put all youth sports on hold until mid-December, so the January 4 opening date for floor hockey is still in play. With Gov. Walz set to reevaluate things in mid-December, things certainly could change, so please keep an eye on the team website, Facebook and Twitter in addition to your emails for more information. The tentative training schedule is now available for download. Please reach out to coaches Jonah Pridey and Patrick Dreher with any questions.

The regular adapted soccer season for 202 has been replaced with an 8 session training season, approved by the MSHSL. These training sessions will provide our athletes an opportunity to practice their soccer skills and maintain social involvement with their teammates in an environment that is as safe and socially distant as possible. Outdoor training sessions will be utilized as much as possible to limit the possible spread of COVID-19, with indoor sessions used only when the weather is not appropriate for the team to work outside. These training sessions are voluntary, and opting out of these sessions will not have an impact on an athlete’s standing with the team. The coaching staff has scheduled training sessions on the following dates and will send information on the training sites at the beginning of each week. All sessions will run from 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM.

9/21, 9/23, 9/28, 9/30 10/05, 10/07, 10/12, 10/19

Please contact the Robins coaching staff if you have any questions regarding this training season.

While we didn’t get a chance to give our floor hockey season the ending it deserved with a trip to the state tournament, our kids still got a little bit of recognition for the work they put in all season long. Follow the link below to see the story WCCO did on the Robins as we prepped for the state tournament.

The Robins wrapped up the 2020 regular season with a well-played 7-0 win over the Mounds View Rams. The win gave the Robins a 4 game winning streak heading into the state tournament. The entire team improved in all aspects over the course of this winning streak and gained a ton of confidence in their abilities. Sam Roles led the way with 3 goals tonight, Marcus Strong was right behind him with 2 goals. Mark Cleveland and Jose Leon Estrada scored one goal each. Santana Washington was the leader in the assist department, finishing the game with 2. Ava Hetteen, Jayda Johnson, Micah Bomgardner, Mark Cleveland, Edgard Jayee and Lucas Harper all were credited with one assist each. Darius Larson and Edgar Kinanga split the goalkeeping duties, combining for 1 save . Kinanga was credited with one blocked shot on defense. The Robins now await their seed and opponent for the state tournament on March 13 & 14 and have two weeks to keep improving their game.
