The IFF launched the Development Programme in 2005 in order to support and develop the organisation and the activities of the Member Associations. Any Member Association can apply for organising a seminar.

The IFF Floorball Development Seminar (FDS) is built on three different blocks: OrganisationCoaching, and Refereeing. Each block aims to give additional knowledge to the associations and assist them in planning and managing development in their country. The seminar is a three day event consisting of theoretical lectures, practical training sessions, group work, and hands-on training and observation. During the last years the seminars have mainly been carried out in coaching and refereeing blocks.

The organisation of the FDS is shared between the National Associations and the IFF. The hosting association is responsible for arranging meeting space & training facilities, assisting with the organisation of meals, transport and accommodation, while the IFF supplies the educational materials and the lecturers. Participation in the seminar is free of charge, but all participants are responsible for their own costs related to travel, accommodation and food.

You can find the instructions and guidelines how to apply and how to organize a Floorball Development Seminar Here.

There is also a possibility to organise a Good Governance Seminar which mainly concentrates on the work of the national central boards and governance in general.
