Tri-State Challenge 2011 Update: Selangor A and B Selection

With less than a week till the first matchday of Tri-State Challenge 2011, Selangor Floorball Association (SFA) is proud to announce their two Selangor Development Team A and B selection for the tournament. The teams are comprised of young and talented floorball players based in Selangor and team manager, Mohd. Hafidz, is very proud of the teams.

Selangor A is comprised of the Selangor B players that faced Team Central of Singapore last month. Ery of Joker Prodigy FC is given the captaincy for the first time. The team is formed mainly by younger players with less than 2 years of playing experience but they have bright talents. Mohd. Hafidz said that the team is lacking in ability compared to Selangor B but they are determined to prove critics wrong especially when they have shown great performance in the friendly game against Team Central.

Selangor B is comprised of many well-known players of the Selangor Floorball League 2010/2011, and without any surprise, led by the experienced Gang Bintang skipper, Jethro Wong and his vice captain, Taqiuddin Izzat of KLIUC Hornets. The skipper is confident that the team is capable of showing great floorball display after their inspiring performance against Team Central of Singapore last month which coach Kasee Ruben had praised the quality and commitment shown by the Selangor players. Moreover, the team will also be welcoming national defender Satyan Gunasekaran to the squad, who had returned from the U.S and will be featuring in this much-anticipated tournament. Mohd. Hafidz believed Selangor B has what it takes to compete for the title with Precision Academy, which is the favourites of the tournament. With home-field advantage, they are set to aim for the title despite the lacking of experience as a team because this will be their first inaugural tournament since the set-up.

When asked about the opponents, Mohd. Hafidz has identified Precision Academy as the key contender of the tournament as the team has several key national players; Termin Chiam, Kao Lin Ken and Jun Wooi. They are ambitious and experienced especially playing against the Selangor side. As for the Sabah team, he believed the Sabah team is taking this tournament as part of their development program and giving their players the exposure and experience as this will be their maiden visit to Selangor.

The tournament will last for 3 days (27 July - 29 July) and will be held at Rakan Muda Sports Complex, Puchong. And the first match is a Selangor derby and will begin at 10:00pm (GMT+8).

AMSA Floorball - Floorball Bucket Challenge 2011

Who knew placing 3 buckets in a pyramid shape could be turned into a feisty competition ? That is what FBC (Floorball Bucket Challenge) 2011 was all about. 9 teams (Secondary School Division) battled it out on Saturday (16 July 2011) to claim their very first bucketful challenge.

The tournament organized by AMSA Floorball. This challenge is the first ever floorball bucket challenge in Malaysia and it is held at the MBSA Hall in Shah Alam. The match setting is just a simple 3-on-3 sized court but gameplay was a 4-on-4 tournament. The objective is just simple; standard floorball gameplay but only this time, there is no goalkeeper and your goalpost is the 3 buckets.

I was there late but I managed to catch an hour of non-stop floorball action. Most of the teams are complete amateurs with only 3-6 months of playing experience. With a team I heard who first started playing floorball on the competition day itself !

Besides the tournament, there is another fun section where kids are supposed to complete several stations and collect sweets by finishing the task given. The other ultimate challenge is a small bucket challenge where the organizers placed a small bucket (around 3x4 inches wide) on a stand and your goal is to shoot against the bucket. The size of the bucket made it visibly tough especially for junior players. The hit rate is possible; I managed to hit the bucket at least 5 times out of probably 30-40 shots. But knowing that size does not matter, the joy of hitting it was completely ecstatic.

I believe this tournament is real fun to be organized especially for junior players and hopefully I will see more to come. And the next big tournament from AMSA will be the annual JACT 2011 where it is believed to be held late this year.

That being said, floorball is definitely growing in Malaysia. Majulah Sukan Untuk Negara !

Here are some pictures from the tournament; please visit the following links for more pictures. P.s I do not own these pictures.
