This summer it has been great to see all the old and new faces at the scrimmages and it's great to see how more new people are committing to floorball. The planned summer schedule has come to an end but I'm working on extending the schedule for a few weeks and leading up to September 11. More news about that shortly.
At the moment Guillaume Lamy is the points leader after taking over the lead from Fabien, who left for vacation this past week and did not accumulate any points. We will see over the next month or so if Guillaume can protect his lead and become the second player in succession from the "El Fuego" team to capture the summer league title.
Finally, the summer league ended without any extended schedule and the winner is Guillaume Lamy!!
Congrats to Guillaume. As the first price, he has received a Unihoc stick.
On September 11th we will organize the 3 on 3 tournament and it seems that a lot of people are interested which is great. It should turn out to be an interesting tournament and most likely we will organize another one in the fall if things go as planned.
If you have a team already in place then please do not wait until end of August to register. Register now and make it easier for Stephane and me to plan the schedule and other details.
I'm planning to start some extra practices in a few weeks time, separate from the Summer League, which will be used to prepare the men's Team Canada players for the upcoming World Championships but also to prepare players for the Ottawa Icebreaker tournament. Invitations to those practices will be coming to selected players.
Montreal Open will most likely be played on November 13-14 but we still need to confirm some details. We are looking at either Rosemere or Repentigny as possible locations for the tournament. More info on this to follow in the upcoming weeks.
The Montreal Floorball League is also in the plans and like every year we are trying to rally as many people as possible to improve the quality and quantity of our league. From the feedback I've been getting it seems like a draft for the elite division is the popular choice.
In the next few weeks the final roster for men's team Canada will be announced and we are looking at 8 players from Quebec on that roster. It will be interesting to see which players will be selected as the Canadian team will be making history in playing in it's first ever major WFC tournament and going up against Finland, Russia and Denmark.
In the mean time, please check out the Scanadian website for all the latest products from Zone and Unihoc. Some of the new equipment will be on display at the 3 on 3 tournament or at the practices coming up the next few weeks.
If you have any questions or comments then feel free to write back to me.
