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.

May, the Memories Last

KBFF has had even more fun floorball action since the last update.

The second quarter of the KB Kids TGIFloorball sessions commenced in April and will conclude with our 2nd Kids TGIFloorball Open during the June holidays. More details soon!

A major highlight of the month and possibly the year! was the team’s trip to Manila to play a weekend of friendlies with the Philippines national team.

The girls had such a wonderful time there. The PHI national team and coach were superb hosts. The atmosphere of the arena was even reminiscent of WFC.

Major kudos! to the KBFF organising committee for making the first team overseas trip smooth and memorable! KBfaf!

In the midst of all this, preparation for the Singapore Community Games (SCG) Floorball Sequel on 13 May got into full swing mode.

KBFF volunteered to co-organise this with the guidance of the friendly folks from PA Community Sports.

It was the first time floorball would be featured at the SCG and the stringent registration criteria (you gotta be neighbours to form a team) was daunting.

Despite initial doubts about whether the games could go on, floorball proved its popularity with more than 40 teams participating! Represent!

Our KB kids got to form teams for the U12 Mixed Open that day too. We are very proud of them!
