Our School’s sports teams! Our school has many different sport teams. It starts with soccer, then badminton and basketball. After that we have Volleyball, Rugby, and we finish the year with Track and Field! We have Hockey but it is only associated in high school or in our hockey association. We had a baseball team but we had to fold because the maintenance team wouldn’t keep the field weed-less. We have a good team for almost all our teams win most of their tournaments and games we are some of the better teams in our region. Last year my team went to a Boston tournament and got creamed. We aren’t as good as most of the US teams but we can compete in our region. We are a very active group.

Sports at Florenceville Middle School By: Cassie H., Sean W. and Sebastian G. Here at FMS, we play many school sports including badminton, soccer, basketball, volley-ball, and rugby. We also play hockey in Canada; it actually originates from Canada. The girls in our class prefer basketball, and the boys prefer hockey. Other community organized sports include hockey, gymnastics, lacrosse, golf, baseball, softball, and swimming. This is Sean W.; I play for the North West Bulls, which is a Bantam AAA hockey team. “North West” is the division from Saint Leonard to Woodstock. This team made up of 17 kids that are in Grade 8 or 9. AAA hockey gives kids the opportunity to play at the highest level. If you have the skills to go somewhere in hockey, AAA is the way to go because they take the most talented ones. Some AAA teams make you move to the city and go to school there. It’s a win-win situation, you get hockey AND school! This is Cassie H. and I am part of the community’s swim team. We compete with the surrounding areas and then the top at qualifications form a team to go to provincials. Swim team is a way for kids from around Florenceville-Bristol to meet each other during the summer vacation. It’s not as popular as other sports, but still a lot of kids are involved. Sports are a big part of our lives in Florenceville-Bristol. We enjoy them greatly and would never turn down a competition.

Hockey In this sport we use a hockey puck, Hockey stick, hockey skates, ice and a coach to referee the game. Sports that occur in the winter
Gymnastics – Gymnastics is time consuming and very athletic. If you are in competitive you do up to 20 hours a week of gym time. The apparatuses are called the uneven bars, Beam, Floor and Vault, that’s for the girls. For boys they have the single bar, pommel horse, parallel bars, vault, floor and the rings. The girls have to present when starting and finishing with both hands, and the boys only present with one hand or they can bow. Those are just some facts about GYMNASTICS!!!!
Hockey Hockey is a very fun sport. You need to be in shape to play other wise you will find it hard to keep up with everyone else. Hockey has a lot of equipment so you need some money ($$). But you can get equipment much cheaper if you get them second hand and it works just as well. Besides training on ice you also training on the ground, (that is called dry land training).
