Let's play Hockey and Floorball

Last weekend Floorballplanet went to Las Vegas at one of America's largest trade shows for Hockey. It is clear to us that they had a very good show with many interested people at their booth.
They also had a visit from a very High profile Hockey player that signed one of the New Hockey Canada Floorball sticks.
Right now Floorballpro run a little competition on this stick so if you want to participate in this on facebook, here it is
Floorballplanet was not the only vendor that showed Floorball sticks at this event in Las Vegas. The Swedish company Stiga also had two basic models on display. I might get back to Stiga in a separate post since it is a company that I do respect very much at the same time that I have questions about their current twitter campaign - that seems to be driven by advertising robots - on social media?

Next week Floorballplanet will participate in a convention in Wisconsin Dells that is held by the WHPE. This acronym stands for Wisconsin Health and Physical Educators. Floorballplanet have participated in similar conventions in other states and this seems to be a good way to reach the school community. We will try to get hold of pictures and a report from Wisconsin Dells too.

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!
