Storvreta goes Reggae!

Storvreta, a dominant Swedish club is doing exactly what is good for International Floorball. They have decided to help Jamaica.
According to the Swedish Floorball federation the leader from Jamaica Jason Daye state the following: - " it is both exciting and motivational to be able to co-operate with one of the worlds leading Floorball teams".

Storvreta will collect sticks and balls Oct 16th as they play Dalen among their own members and then these sticks and balls etc will be shipped to schools in Jamaica. But here come the gist in this story. This is not just about transfer of material or hardware. No, Jamaica will also be able to use Players from Storvreta in a new movie that is planned to promote Floorball in Jamaica. There are also plans for coaching development and a training activity is in the works for Storvreta during the next summer on Jamaica. The idea is further to turn Jamaica into a platform or example for other Caribbean islands.
So, now we are talking - here is a model that seems to be clever enough and designed with good chances to work. Thank You Storvreta for your holistic approach. I am truly happy that You do the right thing!

Let us just remind Storvreta about one thing. The city of Uppsala has a sister city in Minneapolis, USA. And You know what, Kuopio in Finland is sister city with Minneapolis too... So would KSS and Storvreta be able to do something like this again, but like together, For their own cities and their real defined sister city?

Here is a text we tossed up like a year ago,
 http://www.floorballcentral.com/2010/10/sister-cities-federations-and-clubs.html,
several things stand out like Växsjö  - well - have fun reading it.

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!
