The IFF runs a variety of development projects in order to support and develop floorball. These projects focus on both the activities of existing IFF member associations and countries where floorball is just getting started.
IFF Development Programme
The IFF launched the Development Programme in 2005. The IFF Development Programme Seminars are built on three different blocks – Organisation, Coaching and Refereeing. Any Member Association can apply for organising a seminar by contacting office(at)floorball.org
This is the IFF responsibility campaign. The predecessor campaign which ran for about ten years was “Say NO! To Doping!”. The new campaign encourages everyone to act responsibly in the spirit of the IFF values: INCLUSIVE, FUN, FAIR, INNOVATIVE, SUPPORTIVE.
This project aimed at helping to increase and promote the participation of girls and women in Floorball throughout the world. The IFF aims to provide guidance on the different challenges faced by girls in obtaining access to participation in sport, and to help break down those barriers within the international Floorball family.
IFF Equipment Support
In co-operation with its Floorball material sponsor, UNIHOC, the IFF provides Floorball equipment to countries where floorball is in its early stages, and also to existing IFF Member Associations based on a needs assessment. Equipment support comes in the form of sticks, balls, goalkeeper equipment and rinks.
Stick with it! Equipment Recycling Campaign
The basic idea is to collect used floorball equipment during events and give it a new life. The received material is donated to a local charitable organisation or utilised as material to be shipped to developing floorball countries. The unusable material will either be recycled, which primarily refers to the plastic, and the rest will be managed according to local waste management regulations.
