Mikael Hill to coach Sweden – 09.03.2017

Mikael Hill is the new head coach of Sweden Men’s national team.

44-year-old Mikael Hill has been chosen as the new head coach of the Men’s national team in Sweden. Hill has coached floorball since 1995 and most currently in the SSL team Mullsjö AIS. For Hill the job offer to coach the multi world champions was unexpected:
- I would’ve never seen myself in this position. My coaching career has always been with clubs and the club teams. I was surprised when I was asked. But to coach the national team, is the biggest thing one can do among the sport. This is something I want to do, says Hill.

The main objective of the new head coach is to regain Sweden’s World Championship title in Prague 2018. Hill’s work has already started and his first tournament will be the EuroFloorball Tour which takes place in a few weeks:
- I want to build a team with lots of speed. I followed the World Floorball Championships as well as the World University Championships last summer and came to the conclusion that fast  decision making, quick feet  and ball handling are factors which have become more and more important when it comes to international floorball and the SSL. Speed is an important part of the game. I’m going to work a lot with that, in order to increase the speed in the game. Therefore I will will look for players who can play at a high tempo.
