Short description of your team and aims at the WU19 WFC 2022?

The team started to prepare since after the U19WFC in Uppsala. The preparation time was very short due to the pandemic. Most of the players are born 2003 and 2004. However, we have some younger players. The youngest player is born in 2007. Four of the players have been part of the WFC last year. The main goal of the tournament is to stay among the top eight floorball nations.
