Adult & Youth Floorball
Floorball is a fun, inexpensive, fast-paced variation of the sport of ice hockey. A game that promotes end-to-end plays with quick transitions and fluid play, floorball further develops a hockey player's stick handling, eye-hand coordination, defensive awareness, body positioning, agility and hockey sense. The rules stress the importance of safety and sportsmanship and are designed to limit the chance of injury without decreasing the speed or skill of the game. Floorball will be played in the spring/summer. Expect more information on floorball in February.
