Practice Makes the Flyer
January 8, 2018
Practice for most sports is seen as boring or inconvenient to the players’ everyday routine, but most guys on the Flyers, whether players or managers, look forward to practices because they are a time to meet up with everyone on the team. Due to their two games a week, the team only practices two to three times each week from 7:30-9:00pm. This limited time forces the team to work together and bond at each practice.
Jay Biwer: Practice never interfered with my school work, and I had time to go home and rest before practice. Practice itself was enjoyable, but the players and coaches treated it with a lot of intensity.
Johnny Khalil: I like to have free time in between school and practice. I loved and will love practicing at night.
Al Brask, assistant coach of the Flyers: I enjoy practice at any time of the day.
Rory Murnan: I’m fine with [practicing] during the weekdays; however, it interrupts the weekends like on Saturday night.
Cole Knicklebine: BSM gets the good practice times. You are very tired after practice and don’t want to do anything when you get home.
Turner Wine: I don’t have to [go to practice,] but I sometimes do for fun.
Alex Webert, first-year Flyer: [Practices can be a grind,] especially if I have homework to do still. Sometimes we will have games starting at 8:30, and we won’t get home until 11:30.
Caelan Woog: I live over half an hour away. It is a pain to have to drive home after school, do my homework, and then drive back to SLP for Flyers practice every night.
Ryan Anderson: My favorite player on the team is the first guy on the ice for practice.
