What is Floorball?

Floorball is the fastest indoor team sport, originating in Sweden but gaining popularity quickly all around the world. It is played using a boarding around the field, and it is possible to play behind the goals such as in Ice Hockey. Also a bit of shoulder-to-shoulder pushes are allowed. This results in a speedy and physical game!

Full Field competition

This is the standard variant of Floorball. Typically it is played in a ~40x20m rink with 5 field players and a goalie on each team. Currently, there are 3 divisions for men and 2 for women in this competition (see https://nefub.nl/competitie). Suggested is to have at least 5 extra field players to switch the full line of players. Switching should be done very often, meaning every 2-3 minutes to keep everyone at highest strength throughout the game. It is usually played 3×20 minutes.

Mixed competition

If you want to play floorball casually, or learn it as a beginner, mixed competition is a great choice. Mixed competition is played on a small field with smaller goals. You play 4 against 4 without goalies. As the name suggest, each team is mixed women/men. It is usually played 3×10 minutes.

The Blue Falcons have two Mixed teams. If you are interested in joining it get in contact with us.

Organisation

There are 3 match days per half a year, all usually played in Utrecht. On each of the match days you play several matches. The costs for playing mixed can be found under bluefalcons.nl/costs. For more information about the mixed and the schedule check the Dutch floorball federation website (nefub.nl).
