Flyers, Get Fired Up
January 9, 2018
For the any hockey player, getting ready for a game is crucial. For the Flyers, preparation starts hours before the game, with players taking naps, going home after school, listening to music, and dancing. They have to get in a focused mindset and make sure they are ready to put it all on the line for the next 45 minutes.
Caelan Woog: Normally I eat a light meal before I leave to go to the rink. I then get to the rink one hour early and warm up, re-tape my sticks, and listen to music to get me pumped up.
Alex Webert: Pre-game nap. I’ll go home after school and take a 30-minute nap before games.
Cole Knickelbine: Dancing in the locker room, Lots of joking around.
Rory Murnan: I listen to music and tape my stick. My playlist has 346 songs.
Jay Biwer: [When I was on the team,] I blasted music and taped my sticks.
Braeden Fitzgerald: I take a lot of pre workout to get really hyped. Even though I’m not playing, I want to be pumped from the stands.
