Fiesta in Manila

The IFF reports upon the second annual Floorball fiesta in the Philippines, an activity that invloved 14 teams and 200 players. The fiesta was a University driven activity and one third of the players came from the area of Physical Education. 
This is interesting to us since we tend to believe that if you want to build Floorball for the future - you do it with the youth in the school system.
Another link to the US is that the Philippines have a long historic relation to USA.

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!
