It is shameful...


That the Swedes can not market their largest top sport better on the International scene. But the Cze, Sui, and Finns are not much better...

Floorball needs  a revolution as it comes to the marketing power...

Gretzky Hockey School has been interviewed in the Swedish largest media here

A while back Peter Forsberg arrived at Ärentuna under utmost secrecy. He was there with Svenska Spel to surprise Storvreta IBK team with boys born-02, participate in their practice and find out what the Svenska Spel’s Grassroots project money was used for.
Storvreta coach Mats Edin gathered his players to draw up guidelines for the practice and the players had to guess who their surprise guest would be. Many guessed one of Storvreta’s own Swedish Superleague stars would appear but instead they were joined by superstar Peter Forsberg.

Their reaction was immediate and the cheers loud. An extraordinary practice awaited. Speed shooting and shootouts as challenge warmup prior to gameplay.  
Once the teams where divided Peter Forsberg was on the black team and put in quite the effort chasing down or passing around the 13 year-olds. At times the game would be stopped and the players would get to challenges would commence, speed shooting and penalty shots.
The visit was part of the Svenska Spel's Grassroots initiative.

It was Forsberg himself who chose to come to Storvreta IBK as he was impressed by the clubs past successes and wanted to get a little insight into how Storvreta IBK work with young players.

The last challenge was three Storvreta players against a lone Peter Forsberg, something he handled well, four, however, was too much and he was defeated.
After the autograph frenzy had subsided he joined Storvreta News to tell about the successful evening. You can check it out below.

Top NHL legend Peter Forsberg speaks up


He talks about Hockey and Floorball in this tweet..


To a Floorball nut blog like this one what he say is not surprising.. To many hockey players it is probably surprising...

Our interpretation is that he talks about Maslow's 5th level of self-actualization and he say that in hockey it is hard for him to find this level today .
But not so in Floorball and - wow Floorball is a though challenge ;-D

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!
