The General Secretary role has been vacant for 2 years now, and some help is badly needed!More of an administrative than a practical role, nonetheless, having a Secretary is essential to keep the board working and help spread the workload amongst our volunteers. Main roles of the Secretary are to support all the UKFF volunteers by scheduling catch up meetings, taking notes of decisions made, and to follow up those actions. They can also be involved with publishing official communications, such as the annual Rules & Regulations update, to include all the amendments made following voting at AGM. The Secretary is also asked to help in casting votes, assisting with decision making by giving advice about how a change might be influenced by the rules, and filing annual returns alongside the President and Finance Director. No previous experience or level of Floorball experience is necessary, and this could be a great opportunity for work experience! Time commitments – scheduling meetings for the year ahead at the start of each new season, attending Skype meetings when possible (1-2 hours every 6 weeks during season time) and helping plan for & attend the AGM, in person or via Skype so this is not a heavy workload role.

The Chairman role has become vacant since February 2019 when Miika Savolainen, our previous Chairman, relocated to Finland.We are looking for someone to take up the work begun over the last few years by Miika and his predecessor, Vlad Tucek, to keep raising the standards of UK Floorball! This role is all about education and working through the 5-year plan we have in place to keep organising new training opportunities, and to help and support the teams with coaching skills and refereeing training. Ideal skills are – a passion for Floorball, being able to communicate and understand what education and support will best benefit our teams, a good knowledge of the game, and aspirations for improving our standards to keep the sport developing and becoming more professional. Time commitments – organising 3 x refereeing courses a year in conjunction with the regional league Directors. Organising other training opportunities as & when possible (e.g. coaching courses, referee refresher training). Monitoring of game standards by attending fixtures when possible & supporting new referees with help & advice when newly qualified. Apply
National Women’s Team Manager
Following our first training camps, Sarita Heikkinen and Sandro Bohringer have now joined forces as a Coaching Team.This decision was made to reflect both volunteers’ passion for coaching, and expertise in different age groups and skill levels. We are absolutely delighted to have been able to hold some women’s & girls training camps, and planning for Amsterdamned Open 2019, so with a year or two of development and time to build a strong team base, we hope to see great things from UK Women’s Floorball when we re-join the international sport again in the future. Sarita & Sandro now need a third person to join the team to help keep up the momentum and help them with managing the team. This can include planning training camps or tournaments, communicating with players to organise things like travel and entry details, and keeping regular contact with the coaches and players. Time commitment – very varied! Ideally the Team Manager would attend training camps and tournaments to help the coaches run things smoothly, and also assist with team selections further down the line. However, the main focus is help with planning events alongside the coaches, so time commitments are limited to those events, expected to be 4-6 weekends per year. Apply
Regional Director – Scotland
We are fortunate that Bob Paterson has stepped in to fill this role, as Michal Zacik has stepped down after several years of running the Scottish League!The replacement is on an interim basis, so volunteers either to take over or assist would be greatly appreciated. Running a league is best split between a number of volunteers, each with a different aspect to manage – writing match schedules, booking venues, calculating & collecting tournament fees, making sure referees are in place for each match etc. Remember that without volunteers from the teams within each Regional League, they would not be able to run, so support and help is important to make sure our leagues keep running and developing.
