FLOORBALL ACADEMY

  
At the moment we are working on Floorball development in Christchurch. Our main goal is to create Floorball Academy within the community in Canterbury. We see an excellent opportunity for Kiwi’s to get involved with World's fastest growing sport.

Our aim is to introduce floorball to schools. Promoting floorball into schools is a key to the development of floorball in a new country. Floorball has a big advantage to set up in schools because it is easy to understand, accessible, fast paced, affordable, safe and spectacularly enjoyable. Floorball fits perfectly to New Zealand School’s Curriculum. It is very social sport because anyone who wants play floorball, just needs some fellow players. Moreover, you can easily integrate males, females and children.

Instead make sure you hit the floor 10-15 cm before the ball, this allows you to load or flex the stick first. Loading the stick is where lot of the power in your Slapshot comes from.
