KBFF and Beyond

For example, Beyond staff found that the young people hanging out at the void deck of a rental block were keen on floorball and roped in a floorball club to teach them the sport. Beyond also organised floorball tournaments and invited their parents and neighbours to cheer the youngsters on.

The TGIFloorball program for our kids in the neighborhood was mentioned briefly in the Straits Times last week.

Being able to afford to play a sport like floorball which requires expensive equipment and a specialised venue is a luxury.

So we started smol by partnering our Orcas’ coach Sonia Teo who has years of experience coaching kids.

She bought some junior floorball sticks online and we ordered a pair of portable goalposts from Jokasports.

The group grew in attendance and they showed us their commitment by attending training punctually and with tons of energy.

Soon enough, sustaining the program was becoming difficult for us because of competing stakeholder interests and issues like securing a proper long-term venue.

But the team pressed on and soon, we saw the light. We now have a proper venue thanks to Kebun Baru CC and we can organise floorball events with the support of Kebun Baru CSC. Along the way, we have also met many supportive parents who volunteered to settle the small things like arranging snacks for the sessions.

Importantly, all that we have achieved so far would not have been possible without our coach Sonia Teo and my awesome KBFF teammates supporting the kids at events and training sessions.

Thank you for the shared belief and for doing this with one united team spirit.

The kids in Kebun Baru had a blast on Children’s Day with a floorball hit around party on 5 October 2018. Special thanks to Créatifcentrique for their special furry guest who enthralled our kids between their floorball matches.
