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.

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.
