Apart from being a fun and dynamic sport, SMU Floorball emphasises on building an inclusive team that members are proud to be a part of. We want our members to not only strive for excellence in the sport, but to also build a safe and close-knit community that they enjoy being in.
SMU Floorball seeks to offer you an environment to play the sport you love, with the people you love, in a community that embraces and grows you as an athlete as well as an individual.
- Past vs Present
An annual corporate networking session, this event aims to bond our floorball cohorts and alumni members across the years through a short game of floorball while learning more about our partner companies. Along with a short session of floorball, our partner companies share more about their operations, mission and what they look out for during recruitment.
- Cross-Club Training
Every year, SMU Floorball collaborates with other clubs in SSU to share our love for floorball while learning more about the sport of the club we collaborate with. We take this opportunity to pick up new skills and bond with other clubs to create richer bonds with the SMU Sports Union (SSU), helping to forge a strong sporting spirit within SMU.

An event exclusive to SMU students, Salibandy aims to be a platform to introduce and encourage more SMU students to engage in Floorball as they compete in 3V3 games.

OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB?
Students do not need to audition to enter the club. The club is open to all who would like to play Floorball regardless of experience. We also have recreational sessions for members who may not want to participate competitively.
"SMU Floorball has created opportunities for me to grow as a person on and off court. I had the opportunity to lead in the CCA and work with new people. Our coach not only encourages us on court but also guides us in setting personal goals. It has been an enriching experience for me to grow mentally and physically."
- Celine Low, Vice-President, Year 3 Economics
"Joining SMU Floorball was one of the best decisions I made in university. Even though it has only been a year, the friends I made, and the training we had together were highlights of my university life. Trainings took the stress away from school and the people brought happiness to me."
- Jerad Woon, Member, Year 2 Accountancy

For competitions, we are allowed to register 23 players each for both Mens and Ladies, inclusive of goalkeepers. However, we do have recreational members who are more than welcome to join our trainings(:
Yes! We have recreational Floorball sessions that are usually held on Tuesday Nights or other days depending on the availability of the court space.
