Raptors Floorball Club

Junior Development​

The Club’s ‘Develop’ value is focused on both progressing the skills and culture of Club juniors, as well as more broadly developing the ‘floorball community’ in Western Australia. During the last year the Club’s junior development program was run in conjunction with Revolution Sports and their junior social and junior state league competitions. To counteract a relative gap in participation and skills levels in junior girls competition, the Club has led junior girls training, which occurs for 90 minutes on a weekly basis, year around. A team formed primarily from that group of girls won the 2022 Singapore Floorball Open’s U15 girls competition.

Women's 2

Was a new division this year, with FWA wanting to expand the women’s competition and attract more players to the sport. In that context, all of our W2 players were new to the club, albeit not new to floorball having predominantly come from the Monday night social competition. Many of the ladies had a connection to the Club by way of being parents of current or future Raptors junior players. The team took it in turns to captain and goal-keep each week, and had an excellent season – easily finishing on top of the ladder with the most games won, the most goals for (51) and the fewest goals against (17): their goal difference of 34 was more than 3 times that of the second placed team. Unfortunately, luck didn’t go their way in the semi-final and they lost in a penalty shoot-out, before bouncing back to resoundingly win third place.

Winter Training

Club trainings, which are held through the winter off-season, are led by highly experienced, professional coaches, many of whom have international floorball experience. Players who are approaching 15 years old are progressively integrated into competing with adults through the winter club training sessions. Although newer and younger players tend to be over-represented at these sessions, typically members from all of the Club’s teams and divisions are regularly in attendance. Sessions last for 90 minutes, including 30 minutes of fitness, 30 minutes of skills based drills, and 30 minutes of match-play in skills balanced teams.

Division 3 - Mixed

Remains the entry point for most junior players coming into the Club’s adult state league ranks. During the 2021/22 season, it consisted of nine juniors and four returning adults to provide guidance and support. Continuing previous tradition, there were three father-son combinations. The team develops new players with a progressive loads of training and match play, beginning with the winter all-of-Club fitness and skills training program in parallel with the winter state league competition, before moving to dedicated summer team training and summer state league competition. At the end of the season, the team finished on top of the ladder, with more goals scored (152) and the least goals scored against per game than any other team in any division, and the highest competition wide goal difference (130). The team’s entire forward line finished in the top 20 goal and assist points in the division,
