BC Floorball Announces League, Drop-Ins with Drills, and Youth Program
Last night floorball started back up again at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver, this time with a twist on the original drop-ins I was participating in earlier in the year. Now they have full session sign-ups, and each drop-in begins with 15-20 minutes of drills. Perfect! I'm still a floorball newbie, and having some practice time with long-time players watching over should add some polish to my very rough floor hockey edges. Starting with last night's games' two goals and one assist, I'm keeping track of my points so that I can look back and see how I did over a "season". The BC Floorball Federation is also organizing a Vancouver floorball league, which declared its opening night's success. They're also organizing a youth floorball program for 12-14 year olds so that they can learn the basics of the game at a time when they're just starting to get serious about sports. Congratulations are due to the BC Floorball Federation on the growth of the sport in the Lower Mainland: as far as I can tell, they're very serious about using all the tools to market the sport to British Columbians, using newspapers and online social networking tools like blogging (all the links here are to their blog) and other applications like Facebook.
