February 2018 the U.S. Men’s National team of floorball will be participating in the World Floorball Championships Qualifier in Ottawa, Canada, the selection process for that team will begin in October. If you want to be part of that team then read on!

The team will consist of 20 players and some reserves will be selected as well. The selection process will be ongoing during October with the goal of having the team set by early November.

The selections will be based on previous performances at events, communication with players and coaches as well as scouting reports and more.

If you are a U.S. citizen with floorball skills and want to be a part of team USA at the WFCQ email head coach Stefan Hedlund stefan.hedlund@live.se and cc: General Manager Adam Troy adam@usfba.org and tells us about your interest. Describe yourself as a player and person, also tell us your plan for keeping in top shape for the WFCQ in February. If possible get a coach to send us a description as well.

This goes for all players, even those who participated at the development camp at the US Nationals and players from the World Games, WFC etc.

Email as soon as possible but by the 30th of September at the latest to have the best chance of being selected. Emails after that are ok also but be aware the process will be underway and selection at that time will be even tougher.

In Ottawa team USA will face off with Canada twice and the winner will head to the World Floorball Championships in the Czech Republic in December. The dates for the WFCQ are yet to be set but should be the first or second weekend in February, once set the dates will be announced.

Be aware that all players pay their own costs as well as part of the team’s costs at the World Floorball Championships Qualifier and other events. Also be aware that team USA selections are done before each event that isn’t open to all so players playing at the WFCQ are not guaranteed a spot at the WFC if team USA makes it.
