This season was a rollercoaster ride for both me and the team for sure. Losing players and having a young and inexperienced team compared to the past years was a real challenge. As a coach, my aim was to bring the team to the playoffs at least but it was not easy due to the players’ work commitments, ‘O’ level preparation and the number of inexperienced players that we had. Game after game, many may have thought that we were a team that could be easily taken down without any fight. Despite that, the girls have shown them that they were not any team that could be walked over.
As a coach, I might not have achieved the target that I had set for the team. However, witnessing my players beat experienced players on court has shown me that I have inspired them to play like me at least – to never fear your opponent.
Winning and losing is definitely part of the league but for me, seeing the frustration on the opponents’ faces is an awesome emotion as compared to the feeling of victory that I get from winning and I felt it almost throughout the season…I might not be the best coach that they have ever had and I might have failed as a coach but at end of the day, I believe that I did not fail as a player for sure. I really thank the girls for that! All in all, it’s never the end; it’s just the start of a new journey!! #NH7
Us vs NUS Jupitans
Our thoughts on our performance have been well summarised by our MOTM, Kwang Yali (81). “Our comeback was not about losing or winning; it was about every individual’s determination and perseverance to push the team to the next level. We did it together in this game. We fought till the last whistle. I am very proud of my teammates. We have achieved something that was missing in the past few matches. Of cos, we did want a win against NUS Jupitans but I believe we will get there under the lead of our super handsome and coolest coach.
May we get what we never deserve.”
In a week, we meet last season’s champions, Albatross, in our first Division 1 league match.
Since our community soccer event in May, we had our annual KBFF Camp All-In thus the design of our camp tshirts.
Unlike previous years where the team enjoyed free flow fun, the camp committee added an early morning run, PT by the beach, well, you get the picture.
The aim of the camp was to foster a better understanding and tolerance for one another and to remind everyone of the values we hold dear.
To be a great team, I believe we must be great friends first. A great team becomes friends who take ownership and rise to challenges like organising camps and community events passionately. The more teammates talk and contribute, the stronger our resolve to being good friends and playing good floorball.
It will be the busiest year for KBFF so far. We have two teams- Dolphins and Orcas, vying in their separate Division tournaments. In between the league season, our two teams will also be participating in the ActiveSG Floorball Tournament. We are also months into our #TGIFloorball- floorball sessions that we organise for residents and enthusiasts.
If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything so we are heartened to have the support of a company that understands our values (our About Us hasn’t changed much since 2010) and passion- Dribble. For now, the jerseys are being prepared and we cannot wait to see wear them in our first game!
Hope everyone had a fruitful long weekend. Sleep is for the weak!
Training for our women’s teams under coach Nahen continues tomorrow. If you are keen to play competitively, drop us a note.
#TGIFloorball is back on Friday. We had some responses over the weekend so looking forward to meeting fresh faces!
For our fifth annual futsal tournament, we need more responses to be able to go ahead with the various categories so do register your interest first so that we can help you with registration.
