EDIT:  Schedule adjusted for a fourth youth team!  See below for changes.

The tournament committee from the North Texas Floorball Association has released the schedule and pool assignments for the US National Championships, to be held in two weeks in conjunction with the 2019 State Games of America in Lynchburg, Virginia.

There were 12 teams registered for the Championship (formerly Elite) division, and these are the pools for the event:

Pool A

Menlo Park FC
Utah Floorball
Orlando Vikings
Southside Legends

Pool B

North Texas FA
Colorado
Richmond Rockets
Men’s U19 Development Team

Pool C

NYC Floorball
Chicago Dogs
Women’s National Team
Triangle Floorball Club

Each team will play the other teams in their pool once on Saturday, August 3.  The top two teams from each pool will advance to the Championship playoff on Sunday, August 4, while the lower two teams will play in the Consolation bracket for placement.

In addition, there is an exciting development this year, as the two U19 National Teams (Men’s and Women’s) will play a special exhibition game on Saturday night at 7:00 pm at EC Glass High School.  This will be a full IFF-format, 3×20 minute periods, with effective (stop) time and our own US IFF-nominated referee pair, Vince Faso and Sean Edin, calling the game!  We are looking forward to the opportunity to showcase the newest young talent in the game and to promote USA Floorball to an entirely new audience.

As part of our continued efforts to reach out to younger players, a Youth division is also being held.  There are four teams registered in this division, featuring primarily players from 10-14 years of age, both boys and girls.

Youth Division

Dallas Crushers
Orlando Vikings
Utah
Youth Team 4

These teams will play three games on Saturday, playing each team once.  On Saturday night, a single championship game will be held to crown the 2019 US Youth National Champion between the top two teams.

If you’re in the area, come out and see the best that US floorball has to offer!  All games will be held at EC Glass High School in Lynchburg, Virginia.  The address for the school is:

EC Glass High School

Games begin at 8:00 am both days.  Results will be put up live during the event at the US Nationals 2019 Official Site.

In addition, we moved the exhibition game for the U19′s to 7:00 PM.  Come cheer our young people on in this special IFF-regulation match!  3 periods, 20 minutes, effective time (no running clock), IFF Refs, and an international-style game called!  It’s not something we see often in the US so come fill the rink!
