Trick or Treat? Halloween Floorball Special


Scary Huh?

More Live International Floorball on line


This is tricky..
Cause now the streams come from several different places - and not one hub holding it all together.
Yeah, probably rights and contracts involved - but this must be fixed somehow..

Well

For tomorrow we seem to be able to embed this... Let's is this works cause now we are of the YouTube standard and for Saturday we do not know,,, (crazy)



Is the NHL on a bold race for Floorball on now?


A year ago the Dallas Stars Started with Floorball demonstration outside their own home games and a little implementation program of Floorball in schools under the Stars fitness idea.
This year they expanded this their own Floorball initiative almost 10 times to a level where 316 schools and 185.000 school students will be subjects to Floorball in school. Dallas Stars often talks about this as an hockey initiative - we know it is #floorball.

We heard also rumors this summer, via social media, that some Floorball sticks ended up at the highest level at the leadership with the Florida Panthers...
Tonight this tweet jumps up via Juha Mikkola...


Right now we do not know much more...
But we suspect that the Panthers in on the doorstep for some Floorball action too.

Then as we listen in to the earth with a big ear on both social media and at other places - we hear other rumblings too. The only thing we can say is that these are very interesting rumbings.
No it is not an earthquake yet... but at some point other media outlets - will notice this bubble too.
Cause this is a very solid bubble.

We seriously think - if you give this some time - the few NHL teams not with a Floorball program in place... well they might be on the list of extinction.

Are we too bold again? Then...
Read this again -  maybe 10/30 in 2024 - OK?

By the way we have never been too bold ;-P

In clear text on todays big USA reporting from Sweden


Today Innebandymagazinet in Sweden writes the following about USA Hockey:
We took the liberty to translate it in it's full glory...


Hockey in The USA Celebrates Floorball

Floorball is the reason to the large number of Swedish Hockey Stars. This is a conclusion by USA Hockey - that now will focus more on Floorball for the youth. 

USA Hockey has recently been thinking how it is possible that Sweden produce so many good Hockey players, when only New York has many hockey players as Sweden.
"- They also looked at the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Norway and some others that also produce good players. The conclusion is that the reason is that these countries do floorball in school, as extracurricular activities and with friends." This state the Swedish Floorball (SIBF) development head Mr. Emil Risberg, how has had close contact with USA Hockey, to Innebandymagazinet.se.

Technical skills and the understanding of the game is enhanced by playing Floorball as a youth and this promotes hockey players is the conclusion.
"- Due to this reason they want to introduce Floorball to Hockey children and youth players. At the same time they share the value proposition that irrespective of the sport you chose you must have fun as you play. If they find hockey players that thinks Floorball is more fun so are they as happy if they continue with that," say Mr. Risberg.

If we follow all applicable laws...copyright & stuff we can probably not do this translation... But in the name sake of..  and for Floorball... we think this is still way more important.

Innebandymagazinet has copyright on their material - and normally a translation require a permit - but Sweden sleeps right now and this is so good so it must out fast... If Innebandymagazinet does not like this we will take it down - on the double..

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!
