Brian Radichel is originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota and has been a hockey fan all his life. Moving to the DFW area in 2012, he and his family discovered floorball at the Flower Mound Community Activity Center in 2013 and they began playing with the North Texas Floorball Association (NTFA). Starting at defense, Radichel moved to goalie shortly afterwards so he could spend “more time on the rink and less time running.” In 2017, he became the president of the NTFA and worked to improve the game and management of the floorball community in North Texas. During his tenure as President, NTFA won their first US National Championship and began hosting the Texas Open, now one of the US' premier floorball tournaments. He stepped down from his role as President in 2022 to focus on growing the game nationally, including his management of the Jaguars and increased participation with USA Floorball.
Radichel is also a USA Floorball certified referee and has worked at the 2018 US National Championships as well as the 2018 Storvreta Cup in Uppsala, Sweden. He has been the Tournament Director for the US National Championships since 2019 and a color commentator for the ESPN broadcast of the 2019 Golden Gate Cup. In 2018 he joined the US Men’s U19 National Team staff as the Marketing Director. The following spring he traveled to the World Floorball Championships in Halifax, Nova Scotia. There, the US placed 13th, the team’s highest finish in the program’s history. In the fall of 2019 he became the team's General Manager, a position he currently holds. In the 2023 cycle, the team qualified for the WFC by beating Canada in the American qualifying event. This past April the boys went to Frederickshavn, Denmark, to compete at the WFC, where they finished 16th.
Brian was appointed to the role of Competition Manager for USA Floorball in the fall of 2022. In this role he is responsible for the standardization and professionalism of all national events in the United States. He formed a new Competition Committee in early 2023, and this Committee just released a standardized ranking system, ruleset, and schedules for all USA Floorball-sanctioned events to be held in the US. The Committee continues to look for ways to improve the organization of events for USA Floorball as well as providing new clubs a model for their local player development.
Radichel is employed by Purvis Industries in Dallas, where he is the Vice President of Marketing & Business Development. Brian and his co-owner wife Leigh make their home in Flower Mound, TX with their two sons.
