Midwest Floorball Championship 2015


April 25th is the date we will play Midwest Floorball Championship 2015.

We will run this as last year. We will try to post a repeat on rules as we used last year here soon. Yes foot pass is allowed.

Registration is open now - until April 20th.
You register - either by an email to ulfjens or to Joe P (make certain you have a confirmation email back) - jprotz(at)ci.tomah.wi.us or ulfjens(at)gmail.com - replace the brackets with the at-sign teams should have minimum 5 players as we play 4 on 4 with goalies, recommended team size 7 players, or you can max a team with 9 players. Goalies may double up as field players and this way play in both divisions. Each team need a designated ref and a captain as well as a designated goalie. Goalies can also play field players in the other division. We have two divisions A) Advanced or B) Recreational

You can also mail registration with money/check to
Tomah Parks and Rec
819 Superior Avenue, Tomah, WI 54660
But make certain it has arrived on April 20th

If money is not sent in at advance, we will take payments as You arrive too in the morning. Games will be running for 12x2 or 15x2, slightly depending upon numbers of teams. Each team should have at least 4 games scheduled = roughly 2 hours of games at least.

It sounds like the Twin cities will have 3-4 teams in place. They might aim to win both divisions this year (that is the right spirit) - - let's see. Tomah is working on  perhaps 4 teams, this is at least what we hear right now.

And as before - if you can not fill a full team - let us know - we might be able to have free agents form a team too.

There are only a few differences this year:
- No boards - as we have been unable to rent/find boards cost efficiently anywhere.
- For the advanced, we will use Ice dividers
- For the rec; one guy Mr. Dan will make specialty dividers to cover some bad areas
- The main big trophy is in process to be updated with a good investment
- The cheapo price of 10 bucks last year did not bring in enough and the concessions failed from the financial side - so we do not plan to have the booster club in again. We will try to take care of the concessions ourselves and the cost per player to participate in the tourney has been raised to 15 per player. This should cover the expenses.
- The other rec trophy is in St Paul?
- The stick store will be rather limited as we only have a handful new sticks here and do not plan to order more sticks currently
- loaner sticks will be available
- We might possibly have one free stay at a hotel room in Tomah if someone needs that - just let us know and we try to will investigate if this is true or not - but if this is true we have only one night - one room.

We also ask for team support with donations of items to a possible raffle drawing we will try to run. Baskets or anything you might be able to haul in of value? We have had some cool items too like a leaf blower from Toro and so on.. earlier years.

Questions?
Toss in an email, see above.

- we plan to have have one Head ref
- we plan to have a head organizing committee, so we can solve any disputes that goes beyond the games, like protests and stuff.

Also, it is helpful if you early on can indicate if you are planning to arrive with a team or not - since it will help us with the planning. Also if a team is short on players please let us know - We might have a free agent available somewhere.

Next weekend, we will try to deliver fliers about the tourney at the Let's Play Hockey exhibition in MNPLS. We do not think that this will bring on additional teams - but we never know. This exhibition is the reason why we have set the sign-up date very late before the tourney, to give additional teams a chance to form and sign-up. We suspect, last year the short sign-up time obstructed some of our possible teams from that event.

Feel free to share (forward) this information with the people - all of them - You think needs to know this.

Thank You very very much ;-D

One more thing, as the booster club ran the concessions last year - at least one team brought in their own food. This is not allowed if we have a concession running since it defeats the purpose with a concessions. We will try to arrange our own concession this time - however if we fail in that respect. Then we might consider to ask all teams to bring their own food supplies, OK? This information will be updated as we come closer to the tournament.

All the best - take care ;-D

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!
