USFbA to investigate the future of Female Floorball


News for girls from USFbA

---

USFbA has decided to investigate the possibilities of forming a U.S. National U19 Women's team taking aim at the 2016 World Floorball Championships.

This will cover both possible players and ways to develop a team in both logistic as well as economic terms.

Anders Buvarp in Colorado has been assigned as General Manager and Michael Borg of Wisconsin will act as Senior Adviser for this project.

A U19 team is a crucial way to build Floorball for the future. The next female U19 World Floorball Championship takes place in 2014, the following time, in 2016, the city of Belleville, Canada will host the WFC.

"We think the US must be represented as the World Floorball Championship comes to Canada in 2016" says Borg. "But we also know that it will be hard work to form a competitive US female U19 National Floorball team for 2016" adds Buvarp. "However we think we have some good ideas on how to accomplish this task." Buvarp concludes.

Congrats to all players selected as our "Lucky 13" group. It was a difficult group to select from... Over 70 players took part in the 5 camps during the spring. If you were not selected there are still 7 spots open and a total of 30 players can be added to the IFF list before the tournament in May 2014. We will be adding names to that list before the fall semester of school starts and adding the last 7 names before Christmas 2013.
I will be attending the Hockey Canada Skills Academy Coaching seminar in Calgary, Alberta next week where Anthony Harrington will be highlighting floorball and promoting the sport and making an emphasis on Women's Floorball as we get ready for U19 2016 worlds in Canada (Belleville, Ontario).
Our next big push is to expand our U19 floorball database outside of southern Ontario and into the Western Canada and Quebec. We are targeting for 2 players from these regions for 2014, and 6 players for 2016. Please help out in anyway by spreading the word. 

Have a great Canada Day Weekend!

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
