NOTE ON FALL REGISTRATION

Due to ongoing issues related to COVID-19 and most schools beginning the year in a distance learning format, we will not be offering Girls Volleyball, Boys & Girls Flag Football, or Floorball registration at this time. If you are interested in these sports, please contact us so that we can discuss the situation further. 

We thank all our school participants for their patience and support as we navigate the uncharted waters of the COVID-19. These are unprecedented times and FIYA is working tirelessly to provide participation opportunities where and when it is safe to do so. Moving forward, we will continue to send out emails to keep you informed of the status of FIYA athletic events in the 2020-21 school year.

FIYA Floorball

NEW! Starting in the 2020-2021 school year, FIYA's proud to present its very first floorball league set to take place in the late fall through winter seasons (please see current season dates to the right).

 

 WHAT IS FLOORBALL? 

Floorball is a type of indoor floor hockey played 5 v 5 with four (4) 'field' players and a goalie on each team.

Floorball is fun, fast, safe and inexpensive, requiring only a stick, athletic sneakers, shorts, shinguards, and a t-shirt to play. FIYA Floorball goalies do not have sticks but can wear light padding or long sleeve shirts and pants and will be required to wear a masked helmet. See more details on equipment and other components of the game by visiting our How to Play Floorball page.

NOTE REGARDING COVID-19: We are planning for a full year of FIYA sports in 2020-2021, but it is subject to change and revisions may be implemented based on any government restrictions or other issues related to COVID-19. Consequently, if any currently scheduled event is to be cancelled, payments for FIYA leagues and tournaments will be reimbursed in full to registered schools.

 


 

 FLOORBALL AGE DIVISIONS & DEADLINES 

This season, FIYA Floorball leagues will be offered for teams in: 

 Division 1  - 8th Grade & Below

 Division 2  - 6th Grade & Below

 Division 3  - 4th Grade & Below

 Team Registration Opens:  Sunday, August 2nd 

 Team Registration Deadline:  Friday, October 16th 

*Again, all season calendar dates are listed to the right of this page* 

 


 

 WHY FLOORBALL? 

FIYA's excited to provide floorball in our program and for our schools because: 

  • it's a unique, growing sport in the U.S. 
  • it provides great physical benefits for players including core strength, agility and speed, and anaerobic fitness
  • the game can be easily picked up by beginners
  • but it also holds great potential for development of stick and ball handling, passing and shooting skills.

Floorball is ideal for coed and mixed age groups due to the emphasis on speed, skill and technique over physical strength, and if you have any students who play lacrosse or ice hockey, this is the FIYA sport for them! Injuries are also not much of a factor because the stick is made of a lightweight (carbon or other type) fiber with a plastic blade and the ball is a plastic ball. Body and stick checking are not permitted and playing of the ball above the knee is illegal.
