Respect and Sportsmanship: The Heartbeat of BBFS



In the high-energy world of floorball, where every game is a blend of speed, skill, and strategy, there lies an undercurrent stronger than the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat. At Big Blue Floorball School (BBFS), this undercurrent is the unwavering commitment to respect and sportsmanship.


Why Sportsmanship Matters

Sportsmanship is more than just a part of the game; it's the very foundation upon which BBFS is built. It's about recognizing that every player, coach, referee, and opponent is part of a larger community bound by a love for floorball. But more importantly, it’s about acknowledging that this community thrives on mutual respect.


Respect on the Court

At BBFS, respect is demonstrated in many ways. It starts with the basics – listening attentively to coaches, valuing the input of teammates, and respecting the decisions of referees, even when they're tough to accept. But it goes deeper, into the core of our interactions.


The Respectful Handshake

One of our most cherished traditions is the post-match handshake. No matter the outcome of the game, BBFS players line up to shake hands with their opponents. This simple act is a powerful affirmation of mutual respect. It’s a recognition that while each team plays to win, they respect the effort and skill of their opponents just as much.


Learning Through Loss

Respect in sportsmanship also means learning how to lose gracefully. In every loss, there’s a lesson. BBFS coaches emphasize viewing defeats as opportunities for growth. Players are encouraged to reflect on their performance, identify areas for improvement, and acknowledge the strengths of the other team.


Celebrating Victories with Humility

Equally important is learning how to win with humility. Celebrations at BBFS are never about belittling the other team. They're about recognizing the collective effort that led to success. It's about sharing the joy of victory while acknowledging the challenge provided by the opposition.


Sportsmanship Beyond the Court

What makes BBFS unique is the understanding that the values of respect and

sportsmanship extend beyond the court. They are life lessons that shape our players into well-rounded individuals.


Role Models for the Younger Generation

Our older players are role models for the younger ones, demonstrating how to carry themselves with dignity and respect both in victory and defeat. They mentor the younger players not just in skills, but also in how to uphold the high standards of sportsmanship that BBFS stands for.


Community Engagement

BBFS's commitment to sportsmanship is also evident in its engagement with the wider community. Regular events bring together players, families, and local community members, fostering a spirit of unity and mutual respect. These events are opportunities to showcase the values we teach and to reinforce the role of sports as a unifying force.


A Continuous Journey

At BBFS, the journey of instilling respect and sportsmanship is continuous. Through every drill, match, and interaction, these values are reinforced. We believe that by nurturing these qualities in our players, we're not just coaching them to be better at floorball; we're guiding them to be better individuals in society.


As we look to the future, BBFS remains committed to being a beacon of respect and sportsmanship in the sporting world. We understand that these values are crucial for the integrity of the sport and essential for the personal growth of our players.

In conclusion, at BBFS, sportsmanship and respect are not just part of the game; they are the game. They are the values that drive us, unite us, and define us, both on and off the floorball court.
