The Youth section, U13s and U15s invite all youngsters to come and play as we are an all-inclusive, all- ages and all- abilities section of the Multi-Sports Club. We provide sticks (for all sizes), goalkeeper kit to wear, practice balls and referees.
Floorball started, in 1997, at Ilmington C.of E. Primary School, where the children played in the North Cotswold U12 Floorball Tournament, run by Mr. Andrew Clough, at Chipping Campden School. This was against other Primary Schools in the area and was played during the winter months. As they learnt the complexities of the game, and started winning the trophy, more pupils started playing floorball! As pupils moved on to their Secondary Schools, many to Chipping Campden School, and younger brothers and sisters also wanted to play, it became apparent to a number of parents that more could be provided for these players.
An U15s team (Years 7-9) was formed, their skills improved immensely as they started playing in an U15 Tournament played during the year at the GL1 Centre, Gloucester. They won in 2010. They train weekly at Ilmington Multi-Sports Club, throughout the year. £2 per session, Members only. We hope that, in time, the U15s will move into the U19s team.
This year they have participated in an U15s Tournament run once a month throughout the year at Kineton Sports Hall. They play 4-a-side and 6-a-side against other teams. One team travels from Farnham, Surrey. We are always looking for new players. Meanwhile a younger group, for non-players, started playing after school. This soon grew to be so large that an extra hour was added to allow the ‘players’ to also play! Soon, players from other schools started coming to play – and so an U13 team was formed. They have also played at the GL1 Centre, Gloucester, winning their Tournament in 2010, including the National Championships and runners up in 2011. They won the Nationals again this year. Ilmington Primary School, A, B and Girls Teams have continued to play in the North Cotswold league at Chipping Campden with a lot of success. (Girls runners-up in 2009, B Team winners in 2011, runners-up in 2012 and the A Team winners in 2011 and 2012).
