Floorball – Trust in your team

So, what happens to you if despite all of your planning and following of these rules, injury still strikes? Well, make sure your floorball player gets proper medical attention for sure, and never put an injured floorball player back in the game just because he says that he’s healthy… highly motivated floorball players want to play every floorball game.

Waiting time at floorball practice before a drill

Trust in the rest of your floorball team to fill the spot. After all, if you’ve followed the above plan all year long, your floorball team will be well conditioned, warmed-up, and will have had plenty of playing time to prepare for this moment. Slap them on the back and tell them to “go give it their all!”

Floorball – Build them up

As the season progresses, keep after your floorball players. Build them up, compliment their improvement, reward them for it! If your floorball team is competitive, don’t forget what got you there! Continue to speak of floorball team cohesion and learning opportunities. The worst thing you can do is to forget your plan and start focusing on the title, all you are doing is setting your players up for an even greater disappointment. You’ll make them tight, nervous, and in the end… will they still be having fun then?

Floorball youth skill drills and practices

Remember, even if you’re not feeling particularly positive during some point in the floorball game, your attitude and your face, your posture, your entire being  must reflect that you are positive and believe in your floorball team, and each individual. You have all the faith in the world in your teammates. They can do this and your positive attitude shows them that.
