Floorball

For those home educating in the Wellington region an email from Wellington Floorball:

“I wondered if you might be able to advertise Wellington Floorball to homeschool families? Floorball is the perfect sport for home schooled children as they don’t need to be registered with a school.

“Floorball is a form of indoor hockey that’s fun, fast and easy to learn.
In term 3 Wellington Floorball runs U9, U11, U13 and U15 fun trainings on Tuesday afternoons at the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie. The cost is $65 for a term.

U9: 4-5pm

U11: 4-5pm

U13: 5-6pm

U15: 6-7pm


We also run a session on Wednesdays at Tawa Rec Centre for children years 3-8, 4:15-5pm. The cost for this session is only $20 per term, or $3 per casual session.
