The head coach of the Finnish Women’s national team that is preparing for the WFC 2019 in Neuchatel will continue to lead the national team for another two years. The Finnish Floorball Federation’s Central Board confirmed this nomination at its last meeting.
– Originally the plan was to lead the team for four years, but it’s great that the Finnish Federation started to discuss the continuation this early, Lasse Kurronen comments in the Finnish Floorball Federation’s press release.
– There has been in-depth discussions of what the sought goals are in women’s floorball. There has been a big change not only in the national team player mindset but also more generally and the requirements and criteria for the national team players are constantly developing. Whether the upcoming World Championships will be a success or not, the work is still only in progress and it will continue with these players.
Even though the work is being done on a long term basis the head coach has no doubt about the goals for the upcoming WFC that is only two months away.
– We have a good group of players and we are heading to the WFC in Neuchatel to play for the gold.
Lasse Kurronen started as the head coach in the beginning of 2016 and during his first term Finland got silver in the WFC 2017 in Bratislava when loosing the WFC final to Sweden only after penalty shots.
The Women’s WFC 2019 is played in Neuchatel, Switzerland, December 7th – 15th and the WFC 2021 is played in Uppsala, Sweden.
