Partnerships: Tell us about your partnerships
Floorball Nova Scotia (FNS) has most recently partnered with the local high school (Sackville High School) in introducing the sport of floorball to the boys hockey team. We organized and ran 10 weeks of floorball games to showcase the sport and give the players a chance to learn new skills. Next year FNS will become new 'player' in the schools physical education program with sights on introducing the sport to grades 9- 12 (about 900 children)
Florball Nova Scotia, through its affiliation with Floorball Canada, is partnering with Hockey Canada's provincial affiliates (Hockey Nova Scotia) to offer elementary age children the opportunity to play floorball and develop athletic skills relating to the sport of hockey but also, because of the speed and nature of the floorball, offer ways that will enhance endurance, hand-eye coordination, game play/ situational processing and fine motor skills that children can use in their life activities as well as alternative sport options.
