Participants of the 2014 International Floorball Seminar with Special Olympics and the IFF.

In connection with the European Floorball tournament a Special Olympics international seminar was organised in cooperation with the International Floorball Federation and Special Olympics. 18 participants attended the seminar with most from Europe: Austria, Estonia, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Slovenia and Switzerland. But also Jamaica and Venezuela were represented. During the practical and theory floorball sessions on the second and third seminar day, the floorball training was attended by Princess Nora of Liechtenstein, who is also an IOC member. Also the Managing Director of the Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia, Mrs Mary Davis, visited the training session and tried floorball. Special Olympics Floorball is growing fast and at the moment at least 24 Special Olympics National Programmes have included floorball on their program.
