Latest Update on 2014 Midwest Floorball Championship


The deadline for signing - up teams has passed. We have 11 teams confirmed. We will make a last attempt via the Tomah Parks and Rec over the weekend to find one more additional team to play in the Rec division.
We might upgrade one of the Rec teams to play in the Intermediate division - this - if we find one more Recreational team - would mean that the tourney will have three divisions, Advanced, Intermediate and Recreational - and also have three winners - this will be confirmed after Tuesday next week.

We have today also discussed a qualification round that would have all teams being qualified to each division by 3 placement games - before each division is being played. This can only happen as we have 12 teams signed up. Further Tournament structure will be released in the middle of next week.

T-Shirts and Floor tape has been ordered. We are still looking for baskets for a possibly raffle draw to bring in more revenue.
The rental fee of the real board system that we will be used will be covered by sponsorship by the Tomah Booster Club plus the fee to sign up the teams - some possible raffle tickets and T-shirts sale. This budget might be a close match so we might put up a donation jar to to further cover expenses to raise the money needed.
The board system will provide one real Floorball rink - almost at the size of a full rink - the minor lack of space in the gyms means that we play 4 on 4 with goalies.

Welcome to Tomah and stay tuned for further News - as the final game plan is set in stone - mid next week.

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!
