Update about the Orcas & TGIFloorball

The KBFF Orcas in Division 3

Orcasfirstgame

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.

Stairs to Heaven

Our slow start against NTU Tempest last weekend almost costed us the game but our girls fought back to level the score after being two goals down.

It was not a full squad as our players are mostly having exams ranging from N Levels to Uni midterms aka Life of a Singaporean.

After the game, it was time for PT. These stairs made my legs ache for days after but every step made good team bonding time. We went from pretending we were climbing a mountain without a view to comparing how much easier this is than our weekly HDB stairs PT.

If you’re up for a character building sport that brings out the best and worst in you, look no further. Join us.

We cater to all levels of experience in floorball and sports in general. Yes, coach potatoes are welcome too. 😆

Afterall, that is how KBFF started. This is a photo of us from 2012!

Czeched in

In August 2015, the ladies’ floorball national team travelled to Prague, Czech Republic to be the first Singapore team to take part in the annual Czech Floorball Open. What better way to get accustomed to playing against European opponents?

The Open was held at different towns in Prague. Imagine a floorball-friendly court nearby every mrt station in Singapore. Yes, that cool! Their country is 7th in the world floorball rankings because they start young *ahem*

One of our matches was held at HFK Děkanka o.s. aka Dekanka Hall.

During warm-up, I looked up at the hall walls. There was a huge poster of Nikola Cerna in her FBS Bohemias jersey. We had been writing way before this so it was such a pleasant surprise!

Fast forward to 3 July 2016 and here she was with Hana Sladeckova. We were doubly honoured to spend some floorball and durian time with them. The rest is KBFF history. (Photos in our Facebook page)

Sixth game of the season

As anticipated, the game against NUS Jupitans was a closely fought game. It was awful for us to concede 2 goals in the first period through a penalty and one that trickled in over my head. However, the girls kept their nerve and we made it by the skin of our teeth.

Since it was the final match of 2013 and our forward, Aza, was leaving us for her girlfriend (hehe), we had our Christmas gift exchange early led by Nab!

Sticking to tradition, our captain gave us something extra- matching underwear!
