A Huge Success! Let’s just say that the Kids and Young Adults who had a chance to play Floorball at Rogers Arena had an amazing experience, and our organizing crew did too!
Throughout the Day we had a Tyke Zone, try-it area supervised by Hockey and Floorball Skills wizard Pavel Barber. The first competition of the day was between our Atoms, followed by the PeeWee division and last but not least the Bantam Division. The 3vs3 format with goalies was exciting and fast. We witnessed incredibly entertaining games, full of both fairplay and competitive Floorball spirit.
Teams from Semiahmoo Floorball, ‘BC Floorball- North Shore Junior Floorball’, Coquitlam and Vancouver came together to the Canucks Annual Equipment Sale and Next Genr8n Floorball 3Ball Challenge. It was a real thrill to play at Rogers Arena! More pictures from the event will be posted online on BC Floorball’s Facebook Page.
The Event was all organized and captured online thanks to the super cool tournament software and scoring technology by The Hockey Community- Event Stats can be found here:
Pavel Barber insane stickhandling skills!
During the transition of the age divisions, Pavel Barber demonstrated Ice Hockey Skills and Floorball Skills, showcasing the synergy that exists between Floorball and Hockey. It was truly inspiring for the Young Athletes, many of whom are already Pavel Barber Youtube Channel Subscribers. We also learned about Pavel Barber becoming a Finalist in the TSN Advil Highlight of The Month contest. Participants were encouraged to go online and vote everyday until June 22nd, so that Pavel can win the $25,000.00 first place prize.
The proceeds from the day were put towards a Next Genr8n Floorball Equipment Kit for:
