Canada and Denmark are new wWFC U19

In May 2012 Canada will for the first time participate in the World Floorball Championships for girls U-19.
The full schedule is posted here http://www.floorball.org/statistics.asp?lohko=1317134955 and the latest up on this is here http://windows3.salibandy.net/news.asp?id_tiedote=2188.
Both Canada and Denmark are new in the B-division and it sure looks like there are some strong teams at this level. Do I dare to guess that Canada perhaps might end up just outside from being moved up to the A-division in this their first attempt?
Hmm, I do not like how the Groups and Divisions are designated. I do not know why it must be named by using letters. Could not the A-Division be named the Täkhä division instead? I mean, should not the organization honor names of epic players, or similar ideas, to create little drama around the classification system? Now we have A,B, C groups and A and B divisions. It is not only confusing - it looks kind of like boring bureaucracy too.

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!
