Girls Day in Switzerland and our true heros

Today it is girls day in Switzerland. That means that some 30 plus clubs are involved to recruit the female future for Switzerland.
Good stuff and we are sure they may recruit many ladies.

From the International perspective though.. We still think that the BIG potential to bring on more Floorball players is larger out side of the big four nations. It is fine if they do this within in Sweden, Finland, The Czech republic, Switzerland etc. But it is also some kind of  a "sand-box" project. We like it, but we think folks must start to take serious initiatives outside of the national borders...

For the International future of Floorball the International ambitions must be ramped up, not only with local initiatives. But with global initiatives.

Let us therefore in this post also salute Floorball4all and all other people from Switzerland that have been involved in getting Floorball going in Brasil (including some local people too).
And let us also salute Storvreta and SIBF that are making serious progress on Jamaica (including locals too).
It is within projects like this the true, global and real spread of Floorball rest. You are our true super-heros! Ok we like "local" initiatives for girls too...
But the main question is who takes on the next country - and how? Is there something global in pipeline from Finland or the Czech Republic too?

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!
