Semiahmoo Floorball players set to hit Rogers Arena floor
South Surrey and White Rock floorball players will compete on a pretty big stage next month – Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
The three-on-three floorball tournament will be run in conjunction with the Vancouver Canucks annual equipment sale, which should ensure large crowds on hand to take in the action.
The event is set for June 7, from 11 am. until 6 p.m.
The Semiahmoo Floorball Association is in its first year on the Peninsula, having converted from ball hockey for 2014.
In floorball – which is very popular in parts of Europe – the sticks are shorter than traditional hockey sticks, and a whiffle-type ball is used, as opposed to a puck or orange hockey ball.
