Sahly is a form of European Floorball which is fast becoming a popular sport among young people. The game is usually played with 3-5 player teams. Participants employ one meter long plastic sticks which they use to direct a whiffle ball into the opposing teams goal. The demonstration will introduce the equipment and the rules of the game, followed by a clinic which will allow the adventuresome to test their skill level at directing the ball into the goal. Participation is limited to registered guests. The event is free.
