"I’ve been a passionate advocate of Floorball since 2014. From the moment I was introduced to Floorball I was hooked. As a result I've been involved in promoting and educating people about the sport and it's benefits. Having 10 years of experience teaching, playing, coaching and developing youth programs, I could see how much of an impact the sport could have in the US. Floorball is blossoming as the fastest growing team sport in the world. I'm excited to have opportunities to share my passion of Floorball with others, and help them get their own programs started." - David Crawford, Floorball Guru, LLC CEO.

What Others Are Saying About Floorball Guru CEO David Crawford
“David Crawford’s volunteerism in stick sports is immeasurable. He is a valued instructor, who came into our inaugural Coeur D’Alene, Idaho summer camp and taught our campers the great game of floorball. His contributions to the game speak for themselves, and we were thrilled to invite him back the following year as a volunteer floorball coach with our next group of campers. David’s passion for the game, his work in enhancing the instruction provided to youth hockey players on how to play floorball became a valued asset to our program. We highly recommend David to anyone interested in adding floorball as a part of their program or organization.” - Ty Gretzky, Founder, Gretzky Hockey School
