The Kind of Candy we love


Some Candy is sweeter than most... Penalties  - WFC - and an American - can it taste better?



& thx IFF - good work!

To what point one might wonder ?
Well, if there is a strategy in place one could wonder do we want to grow at strongholds - or have an even spread? Then we argue - maybe that question is not even important?
So what is then important?
We think it is utterly important for the US to bridge to the Development in Canada - so a City like Detroit or Columbus seems very important for Floorball to get established at - as well as at some other northern big cities - not even on this list...
Then for pure political reasons Washington DC must be crucial for Floorball to conquer as a stronghold too? Are there no International lobbyists that could play some Floorball at the Capitol?

With reservations for mistakes - but we think our listing cover Floorball presence in the largest US cities fairly good.

Whats more? We think no city in the USA has a Floorball population penetration at comparable measures as we have in Tomah, Wisconsin. It does not mean we do things good - it means there are substantial comparative advantages - by just being small - sometimes...

This is how it looked like on twitter this morning...

Swift in Texas - up next


Today we take the liberty to borrow some material via Texas - this is all on the soon to be decided Swift tournament - Image and text all credits goes to, B Gomez Austin TX

Attention, attention! SWIFT is officially scheduled and I will be taking registrations this week!

AUGUST 2, 2014
AUSTIN RECREATION CENTER
10:30a - 7:30p

It's time for the 3rd annual Southwest Invitational Floorball Tournament. Held at Austin Recreation Center, it is the US's premier 4-on-4 floorball tournament. After two very successful years, we're back at it to bring you a highly competitive tournament where you can showcase your skills in preparation for the US Nationals in September.

This year is particularly special because the United States Floorball Association (USFbA) is hosting a development camp at Round Rock Sports Center the Thursday and Friday (7/31, 8/1) directly preceding SWIFT (Saturday, 8/2). Learn from the experts about how to play or how to improve your skills, or maybe try to make your way onto the Team USA roster. Details on signups will be provided soon.

Tomas Louda (who is not on Facebook) will be captaining the Austin team this year, so if you are interested in playing, please email him directly. The teams will be up to 13 players (12 field, 1 goalie), with price at $25/person (though the team fee is $225 flat for up to the first 9 players, and an additional $25 per head up to 13). If you do not have Tomas's contact info, please message me privately and I will help you out. If we do not receive enough out-of-state signups, we will allow for a 2nd Austin team, a 2nd Houston team, and/or (if requested), a 2nd Fort Worth/Dallas team.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
