USFbA aiming to field a Women´s U19 Team for the first time – 04.07.2013

USFbA has taken the first step towards forming a U.S. National U19 Women´s team, with the aim of participating in the 2016 World Floorball Championships in Canada.

Anders Buvarp in Colorado has been assigned as General Manager and Michael Borg of Wisconsin will act as Senior Advisor for this project. The project will include the search for possible players as well as investigating ways to develop a team in both logistic and economic terms.

An U19 team is a crucial way to build Floorball for the future. The next Women´s U19 WFC takes place in 2014 in Poland, and then in 2016, the city of Belleville, Canada will host the event - the first time that an IFF WFC final round event will be held in North America.

- We think the US must be represented as the World Floorball Championship comes to Canada in 2016" says Borg. "But we also know that it will be hard work to form a competitive US female U19 National Floorball team for 2016" adds Buvarp. "However we think we have some good ideas on how to accomplish this task, Buvarp concludes on the USFbA website.

The USFbA are to conduct mapping and networking to determine and develop a strategical plan to hopefully form this new representative U.S. National sports team.
