Floorball at the University of Wisconsin, Lacrosse for the first time

“It is like being back in High School again said Huang Vo,” a Vietnamese student that has been raised in the Czech republic and therefore had some good experience from Floorball.

Saturday Nov 19th marks the first ever Floorball event at a University in Wisconsin. I was arranged through the International students office in Lacrosse and some 20 enthusiastic players participated. The head at the International students office Ms. Diane Sasaki said that “this is something we must try to get going at the school and maybe play in-between different departments.”

Floorballcentral, with support of Floorballplanet, was involved in this first Floorball demonstration at the University of Wisconsin in Lacrosse.
We think this was a very good start, with two different recreational groups being able to try this fully new and unknown sport in Wisconsin.

Let us now hope that the students that participated in today’s activity will share their experience with the people at the University responsible for Athletics, Intramural sports or the health and PE teacher education at the University, so we this way may gravitate forward and see some developments.

“What may be more important as compared to Floorball? - In particular as this is a sport going Olympic - most likely many more clues might be necessary, because still too many souls are lost. And that is a pity.” The concluding comment of the day.

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!
