Floorball has been developing in Australia throughout the years despite the difficulties that are created by many competing sports.
Floorball Australia has released Power Play 2024 at the start of this year. This strategic 10 year plan is intended for the entire country and its main aspects are Floorball development and growth.
– The main purpose of the plan is to ensure that we break down any silo mentality and work together on common goals and share skills and experience, the message needs to be loud and clear no matter what state or territory, no matter club or competition or skill or grade, the best interest of Floorball must be put first, Jason Cowland, the President of Floorball Australia states.
One of the most important projects included in Power Play 2024 that Floorball Australia is executing is Project Juniors. The project focuses on junior growth, development and competition. One of the logo designs for the Project.
Daniel Dornak will continue as the head coach of the Men’s National team, which is the current Champion of the Australian Pacific Floorball Championships (APAC). The Women’s National team, which is also the current Champion of APAC, have appointed a new head coach Tom Hoeglund. Peter Harris will be in charge of the Men’s U19 team.
Floorball into Universities?
Floorball Australia is hopeful that floorball will be a pilot sport in University Sports Pilot program that will be held in Brisbane in April 2015.
– The main aspect of the program is to give an opportunity for the sports that are not currently in the Australian University Sports system. Further information will come to hand and we definitely will need support to get this pilot program up and running, Jason Cowland, concludes.
