Let’s RIP Floor Hockey - Part 1

To a blog like Floorballcentral, founded on the idea that Floorball is a great school activity, fantastic recreational activity, the very best support sport for Ice Hockey and a heck of a sport in itself.
To a site like this, Floor Hockey is not only a problem but also an obstacle in America. Therefore we will try to attack Floor Hockey -  in a series of posts with the attitude to put Floor Hockey in the spot-light to reveal what we think is the truth. Feel free to comment upon this if you think we go outside of what we should do.

We do not think that Floor Hockey is a holy cow - even if it rests on some similar basic ideas and principles on how you may play a game, almost like Floorball - well the execution is not the same thing - and to execute is what we want.

Whatever, before we develop this we first have an assignment for you dear reader:

This is what you now must do in four steps:
A) Invite someone from America that you know - who does not know what Floorball is - but for sure knows Floor Hockey to visit this blog
B) You both go to YOUTUBE search for Floor Hockey, Elite Floor Hockey or skills Floor Hockey (in principle what ever you like) and you watch 3-4 video clips
C) You both go to YOUTUBE search for Floorball, Elite Floorball or skills Floorball (in principle what ever you like but same as above) and you watch 3-4 video clips
D) Both the invited and You write here as a comment - what you saw after you looked at a few almost random clips on these “hockey” sports. Contrast and compare please.

To Floorballcentral the difference is overwhelming

R’ U done yet?


Next part in this series will develop why Floor Hockey is an obstacle for future Floorball development in America.

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!
