New Twig outlet online in the US

One of our "bots" sent us some new links about and to Floorball Extreme a brand new "Twig" outlet online in the USA.
We want to quote and use one of the testimonials on this site as an introduction to their new operation:
"Floorball has grown exponentially within our Hockey Canada Skills Academy programs across Canada. There's a lot of end-to-end running in the game which really helps to promote physical conditioning. The rules of the game also place a strong emphasis on stick-handling and we're already seeing how that's helping kids out on the ice."
~ stated by KEVIN BATHURST ~ Manager ~ Hockey Canada Regional Centre-West - 
All according Floorball Extreme.You'll find their site/store here and it seems like they are getting busy with several activities lined up for the fall, on the west side of Minneapolis. We hope to cover more of their activities asap.

Let me just round this post off with a little interesting language comparison.
American slang for a stick - a "twig". Hmm the Swedish word for a Stick is a club "klubba" (like in golf). The Swedish slang for a Stick is sometimes a "Sticka", but that does not mean a twig. Instead the Swedish word Sticka is more geared about a pick - like in a tooth-pick (or more exactly a splinter). Complicated, yes! But the common idea is that in both languages - it seems like slang for both a Hockey and a Floorball stick moves toward a tiny small piece of wood.
And I can not just understand why.  Tell me now if I am wrong in my observations or if You know why this is going on?

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!
