Ylogo_purple The United States Fistball Association will continue it’s partnership with the Kettle Moraine YMCA in West Bend in hosting a fistball clinic at the YMCA’s annual Open House event on Saturday April 26th from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.

The US Fistball team will add it’s name to a long list of great sports organizations that have partnered with the Kettle Moraine YMCA at this event. Past clinics have been hosted by the Milwaukee Wave, Milwaukee Bucks, and the Washington County Untouchables.

This event is open to the public, free of charge, and often draws hundreds of participants. Come learn the basics of fistball and check out everything else the Kettle Moraine YMCA has to offer at the same time!

TopSpikersDresden2014This July a US Women’s National team will compete in an international competition for the first time.  A dedicated group of US Women will put their fistball skills to the ultimate test when they take the field this summer in Dresden, Germany against the best fistball players the world has to offer.  The US team has yet to face strikers the likes of Magdalena Lindorfer of Austria, but don’t count on the US Women’s team being an easy win quite yet as they’re a powerful and well-balanced team led by a coach with world championship experience.   The team will be coached by Gastão Englert who has led Brazil’s national teams to multiple world championships.  Add in men’s national team striker Mat Ogin as well as Phoenix Fistball Club patriarch Steven Groeber and you have a diverse coaching staff with a lot of fistball experience.  The final details regarding the US Women’s team roster will be released by the team’s coaching staff as the event drawers nearer.   One thing’s for certain, win or lose, the memories of a lifetime will be made at the fistball women’s world championship in Dresden this summer.  Visit the official Women’s World Championship 2014 website or the Faustball WM 2014 facebook page for dates, tickets, and all the pertinent details.  For a taste of what a fistball world championship is like, check out this video showcasing the U18 world championships in 2010.  The US Women’s National team is currently self-funded and would be open to sponsorship opportunities and welcome donations to help cover their expenses. Please contact USAFistball@gmail.com if interested.


Logo QualitinThe US Men’s Fistball team has chosen to partner with Qualitin to track the team’s progress towards achieving objectives and improving overall on-field performance.  Coach Gastão Englert has identified the key performance indicators (KPI’s) of the top performing fistball players and teams.  The US team has created a baseline measurement for these KPI’s and will begin tracking progress at team practices.  These metrics will be tracked, recorded, and analyzed using the Qualitin software to help guide what skills the team should focus on in future practices.  Qualitin’s software has proven to be successful in guiding organizational focus for many businesses and organizations and the US Men’s Fistball team expects this partnership with Qualitin will lead to improved focus during practice which will ultimately translate to success on the field.   

Qualitin is also proud of the recent partnership and has shared the following announcment regarding the partnership…

“Qualitin is a company that believes in quality.
 
We provide practical solutions to improve results and we believe in the power of people and  that best practices applied do make the difference.
 
With that in mind , along with USFA, we are implementing ICG, which is a practical methodology that uses Key Performance Indicators to align organisations to their strategy and focus in what really matters – achieving results.
 
Qualitin considers this partnership very important and together we will ensure sustainable results.”
