The Jamaica Floorball Association has sent their first National Floorball team to compete on the international stage. The team did not win any of their matches but Jason Daye, the president for the Jamaica Floorball Association (JFA) said that the mission was a success.
0-27 Jamaica – USA that was the score line
at the blow of the last whistle on game day for the Jamaica Floorball Men’s team in their bid to qualify for the Floorball World Championships.
JFA– Why have you said that the mission was a success?
JD– The main aim for the Jamaica Floorball Association is to develop floorball in Jamaica, and in order to do that we need people that has the skills, knowledge and experience in floorball. We have to compete with the best in order to get the experience needed to improve our floorball playing style.
JFA– So how do these qualifying games fits into that plan?
JD– Most of the players on the Men’s National Team is in their mid-twenties and early thirties. I see this as an investment in future coaches, referees, floorball club creators, board members, floorball officials and even leaders for the Jamaica Floorball Association.
