Tonight was the first 3v3 dedicated floorball event just for kids at the new Kebun Baru CC.
Special thanks to Youth Floorball Academy and Floorball Nation for their support as well.
We have had a flurry of successful events this month which would not have been possible without our wonderful teammates who came together tonight to be guardians, cheerleaders, coaches and bodyguards for the kids.
It is the end of January but it has been quite an eventful month of floorball so far. We start with…
We decided to continue with a second year of TGIFloorball. TGIFloorball is our way of sharing the sport we love by reaching out to people who has never tried floorball.
Our first year was definitely challenging. Amassing floorball sticks for newcomers to use, manpower to be present every Friday to manage the games, and logistics like washing bibs was a scheduling headache for the team.
But, it paid off. Our team met many new people along the way like Hafiz and Herry who were so supportive from the beginning.
One of the girls, E, who joined the TGIFloorball sessions, enjoyed playing so much that she is now a part of our regular KBFF Orcas playing in the Singapore Floorball League.
This year, our TGIFloorball for Kids course for small people aged 5 to 12 years old also include kids from Beyond Social Services, an established charity dedicated to helping kids from less privileged backgrounds.
Friday nights are precious family time for our team and coaches, of course, but the kids’ enthusiasm and eagerness to learn make it worthwhile. Equally, a recreational player making the leap to a passionate, fulltime, now-will-get-grilled-by-the-coach floorballer is a testament to the strength of this scheme which we continue this year.
Our club’s aim for this scheme is to introduce floorball to kids in a safe and conducive environment while letting them grow and learn together.
Am very happy that through one of our players, we may be able to partner a voluntary welfare organisation to include children who do not have the means to play floorball to our scheme.
Promising times indeed!

The KBFF Orcas in Division 3
Our first game against Zyrus FC marked the commencement of the Division 3 Singapore Floorball League. Although we got off on the wrong foot, it pushed us to train even harder for our next match. Our Man of the Match (MOTM) was Amielle Alimusa (#01), who was our keeper of the day with many nice saves to boot. Amielle has been with KBFF since she was 15!
Amielle: As a backup keeper, i felt honoured to kick off the season with the team. I haven’t stepped into court in the past year and i was hella nervous that i would mess up, however the girls gave me constant encouragement that i needed throughout the game which really helped me get in my zone. I’m ever so grateful to be in a team that puts so much faith and trust in me. I owe my motm title to the team & coach for their genuine support and guidance, y’all are da real mvp 💪
Determined to bounce back after our loss last week, we fought hard in our game against NTU Storm.
As aptly put by our MOTM Emily Ortega (#33), “The game on Sunday was a great one for us because not only was it our first win of the season, we displayed some fine team play and team spirit! We’ll continue to work hard and play well for the rest of the season…and score more goals!”
Our lack of intensity and and focus cost us our third game against Katana FC. A third period fightback was not enough.
Our MOTM was Jaime Cheong and our players’ choice award went to one of our pioneers, Koh Hui An. She has been with us from our rough 2010 beginnings 😀
With the seniors putting in a good shift, this game was a timely wake up call for the young players to use the holiday break to train much harder.
Our sessions will resume in January. Contact us to get onto our mailing list.
