A Universal Call

It has been said that one of the most important ways to get Floorball on a steady track to the Olympics is the good development of games played at a high International level - among Universities and similar institutions.
That makes fully sense.
So for next Summers 5th World University Floorball Championship, in Prague.. Well the invitations to this event have been posted and it is kind of time to get organized for this event. Not just as a Floorball team, but also in terms of planning, financial and other arrangements.

Most things Floorball teams/players at the University needs to know begin right here http://www.fisu.net/en/Floorball-2012-2756.html.
I myself suspect that perhaps not too many Universities from the Americas will participate with players in this World event next summer, and that is probably not the idea since there is only one team per country. And I suspect that we only have four countries available so far. But I do think that we must start to inform Universities somewhere - we must let Universities in the Americas be aware about this. So even if You do not know anyone at your University that plays Floorball, maybe You still can send Your University the link as of above, this to make them perhaps more aware about the next upcoming event or just the sport itself?
The first deadline, for the general entry is set at November 23'rd, 2011. So if You do know a University that wants to get involved in this direction for next summer, well it's soon getting time to get the act together and the recommendation must be that they address this issue with their National Floorball organization - since it looks like the tourney is open for one team per nation. I think it would be cool if the US, Canada, Brasil and Jamaica would be able to do this....But whatever You/they do - Good luck in whatever You do for Floorball.

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!
