After the success of the IFF Floorball Development Programme Seminars in both Australia and Singapore, in 2006 and 2007, the IFF Development Function has together with the Asia-Oceania Floorball Confederation (AOFC) decided to organise a separate session of the Floorball Development Programme for its Central Asian member federations as well as new and potential IFF member countries.
The seminars are organised in order to support and develop the organisation and the operational activities of our members and emerging countries.
The next Floorball Development Programme Seminar will be organised in Wellington New Zealand from the 11th - 13th of September, where the Oceanian federations and contacts are invited to. The second seminar, in co-operation with the Floorball Federation of India will be held in the city of Lucknow, India at the City Montessori School, Branch-Gomti Nagar from the 18th to the 20th of September 2009.
The seminar is built on the “Train the Trainer”-approach, including three different blocks,
one for Organisation, one for Coaching and one for Refereeing.
These three different blocks are all aiming to give additional knowledge and support in these fields to the participating federations and persons interested in Floorball. A participant can only take part in one block during the seminar.
The seminar is directed to give insight in organisational issues for the persons running federation’s/clubs or planning to form one, the coaching course is meant for club and playing coaches and persons interested in coach instructors and the refereeing part is for persons responsible for referee education, nomination, observing and some referees.The course consists of a combination of theoretical lectures, practical training sessions, group works and hand-on training and match observation during three days.
The IFF has built a course material, consisting of lectures, practical rehearsals and instructions, which are all in English. All the participants to this course will receive the educational material from the course.
The International Floorball Federation invites the IFF Member Associations to participate in these Floorball Development Seminars, with 3-4 persons per country in each of the three blocks.
The participation in the Floorball Development Programme Seminar is free of charge, but all participants are responsible for their costs related to travel, accommodation and food.
