American & Canadian troops meets NATO Floorball in Poland


WE quote the US ARMY

"The American team stood proudly as the Star-Spangled Banner played over the public address system before the match. They listened respectfully when the Polish national anthem followed. Then it was time for floor ball.
The matchup was a battle of rookies pitted against experience. The American team, made up of Troopers from K Troop, 3rd Squadron, 2d Cavalry Regiment training at the Drawsko Pomorskie Land Forces Training Center in Poland as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, squared off against one of Poland’s best club floor ball teams, WSU Wierzchowo. Though some on the American team were familiar with floor ball’s sister sport hockey, none had played the sport before, which is a variation of hockey without the ice and skates.

The American inexperience showed, as they lost their first game 15-1. "
