The Wellington Floorball League is the highest level of floorball competition run in Wellington. From Term 4 2018 the WFL format is changing.
Teams are open grade, both male and female players are eligible. All players of a team need to be licensed with Floorball New Zealand and players can only play for one WFL team per term. Minimum age for players is 14 years old. Teams must register with a club to play in WFL. If you would like to register to be in a Wellington Storm team, please find the information further down the page.
Game length: Games are 3x15min effective time. This means the new game length is approximately 80mins. Teams should get 14 games across a season.
Teams now register for a season instead of per term. This means we have a summer (term 4 and term 1) and a winter season (term 2 and term 3).
Dates: The next season for the WFL starts on Sunday 28th October 2018 and runs in 2018 until 9th December. Dates for the second half of the season TBC but will align with Sunday Social League. Game days will be held if we are unable to schedule all WFL games within the usual Sunday League nights.
Registrations close: 17th October 2018.
Team fees: $1,200 per team per season.
Team fees have increased due to the longer game length and the season format (as opposed to term format). The fees can be paid in 3 $400 installments if preferred. First installment is due within 2 weeks of first game, second is due by the end of term 4 and third by the start of term 1.

Want to register with a Wellington Storm Club Team?
If you wish to register for a Wellington Storm club team please read the information below. Please note there is no club training for WFL players who are not registered with a Wellington Storm club team.
- Teams will have about 15 players, including 1-2 goalies. This insures that teams can have good training sessions and a minimum of 2 lines even if some people are unable to play a game.
- Each team will have a dedicated coach/manager. Ideally coaches are non-playing coaches. If a team has a player-coach, we will aim to have a team manager/assistant coach at games to assist.
- You will be allocated a team. This means you will not select your own players but will be put with a team of players from Wellington Storm. Teams will be split into U19 teams and adult teams of equal strength. U19 for summer season is anyone born in 2000 or younger, although the minimum age is 14.
- Players who sign up for a Wellington Storm club team are expected to attend their team's training session. Trainings will be Tuesday nights with possibly 1 or 2 teams training on Thursday nights.
- If you want to be part of a Wellington Storm club team and have played WFL at a high level previously but cannot make regular training sessions, there will potentially be a team for you.
$220 per season, or 2 installments of $120. The cost includes your player fee, training fee and floorball license.
If you wish to play for the non-training team OR YOU ARE A CLUB COACH, the cost is $140 per season, or 2 installments of $80. This cost includes your player fee and floorball license (plus training fee if a club coach).
Why have we made these changes?
To raise the level of floorball in Wellington and have more close competitive games. This also helps national team players experience higher level floorball games more regularly.
