The Beauty of our Sport Hello ball hockey fans, my name is Scott Steele or Steelsy, the newest member to the ISBHF’s Marketing Team. In 2018, I will be writing on behalf of the ISBHF on various topics including but not limited to, pre/mid/post game nutrition & general nutrition, supplements, both player and goalie game day routines along with weight training, cardio, goalie specific training and goalie gear/setups. A quick bio about myself: I have been a member of the BBHA (Bermuda Ball Hockey Association) for the last eight years. I was a defenseman for the first two year and have been a goaltender for the last six. In 2013, I got the opportunity to train with the Bermuda national team in preparation of the ISBHF World Championships in St. John’s, Canada where Team Bermuda won the B Pool Championship.

Following a memorable finale between Hong Kong & Korea in the inaugural Asia Championship in 2016, the Hong Kong Islander Organization have confirmed the second ISBHF Asia Championship will be hosted November 16th & 17th in Hong Kong. The Islanders deserve tremendous recognition for a world class hosted inaugural Asia Championship in 2016.

With New Zealand and Australia recently joining the ISBHF federation, there is speculation mounting that either one or both of these nations will compete, making the sequel Asia Championship […]
Welcome, my name is Daniel Harmes – Strength & Conditioning Manager for the ISBHF. Throughout the next few articles beginning in 2018, I am going to give you an insight into the world of off-court training methods, alongside all of the other regimens and resources that can take all players to the next level of performance! An Overview: Individual Goals: this should be completed through discussing with your player the areas of performance that they feel they need to improve upon, and for you to provide the feedback and direction necessary to show players the areas and role/s that they play within the team structure; providing a clear understanding of what is expected from them in the role/s. Team Goals: every team session should be to the benefit of all players. Not every player will need to always improve in the same areas of the game, but this is the reason why the above point is so critically important. The work accomplished in the group training sessions should be executed in a way that requires guidance with such as plyometrics. Goaltender Specific: in many sports the goaltender often receives inadequate training attention, with drills and exercise often geared toward the […]
