UKFF to appoint a new Chairman.
For UKFF members not attending or represented at AGM, our current Chairman has sadly resigned after 5 years service due to relocating abroad.
We are delighted to have an excellent candidate prepared to join the UKFF board to continue this excellent work developing our sport, but due to illness the post was not able to be formally appointed to by Ordinary Resolution at AGM. In line with the UKFF Articles of Association, the board is preparing to hold a secondary board meeting on Thursday 7th June to formalise the appointment.
UKFF is delighted to welcome Tim Hidskes to our team. Tim joins us with wealth of experience and enthusiasm for sport, originally being from Netherlands, now based in Norway. Currently Tim is an active coach and club developer in Bergen with Fjell-Kameraterne and in the past has been a player in the Netherlands Mens and U19s team, as well as a period of time in the UK playing with London Sharks.
It’s a real pleasure to be able to confirm the appointment of our new UKFF Chairman! Miika Savolainen, who you may know either as the goalie for our reigning national champions, or as one of the referees for South Division Two, is a fantastic addition to our board.
After a period of uncertainty over the future of women’s floorball in the UK, we are delighted to welcome Sandro & Sarita to the team! Sandro has been a floorball coach for 7 years & played as a goalie during his childhood. He is head coach of a junior team in Switzerland. Sandro says: ‘to meet the aim of IFF to be at the Olympics in 2028, we need more nationalities who can compete for gold. I would really like to help with this and share my experience with different countries.
