Meet Jason Daye president of the Jamaica Floorball Association. The Jamaica Floorball Association was formed in 2011 and last year participated in the world biggest floorball tournament (Storvreta Cup, Uppsala Sweden). This January the team will participate in the World Floorball Qualification Games in Canada. Here is our conversation with Jason Daye. Support the team’s fundraising efforts today.
Our game against USA and Canada will be our first internal game, so after those games we can start looking at our ranking potential.
In a few years, yes
Since 2011 we have conducted various activities our efforts to promote floorball to Jamaican, and in particular the youths. We have conducted numerous workshops with P.E. teachers form primary and high schools, floorball summer camps, floorball tournaments, etc.
Yes there is a governing body, ‘’Jamaica Floorball Association’’ is registered a non-profit organization.
Yes, the numbers of players are increasing every time
Support in the form of sponsorship from companies in Jamaica.
No, a standard floorball stick and ball is relative cheap.
Through fundraising events (still hoping to get support from one or two Jamaican Company)
So for we have a Swedish Company called Speeedhoc that has really taken our efforts seriously and have provided sponsorship for the team’s gears, etc
They can help us by buying our Jamaican Team support T-shirt. They can place their orders by emailing [email protected] . However we welcome any support that persons can provide. One lady Mavis Walters has invited the team to her house for dinner. I am personally touched by her kindness. We are also hoping for the Jamaican Community in Markham to come out and support the Jamaica floorball team.
We don’t have an official Motto but our mission is to promote, plan, organize and monitor all events and activities for the sport of Floorball in Jamaica. Along with providing training and support for both prospective and active players of Floorball, whilst developing Floorball clubs, and the formation of local and national Floorball teams
There are so many persons I really admire, but Shafton Daye, my older brother have the person I can say I admire the most.
Honesty and common sense
I want to thank you and the Jamaican community in Canada for the interest shown for the Jamaica Floorball team.
