Fiasco?


Can a blog like this kick-start Floorball in the United States of America?


After being online since late 2009 our dry conclusion is.....
NO.

The truth is that even if this blog generates hits that have accumulated soon to be 100.000 hits - the blog traffic stand constant, more or less since we started, so we are not growing here. We just kind of filled a hole of interest.
It is true that many blogs recently have lost traffic to other sources of information like Facebook and Twitter - Pinterest etc. But no, our general conclusion is still that our main goal to shake the USA and maybe Canada about Floorball is not possible to accomplish through this blog.

It is also true that some of the best available promotion Floorball material is not always available in English.

So how can we build Floorball in North America?
Our conclusion is that Floorballcentral.org can not do this alone.  There must be another entity involved. And this organisation must be either the Federal School System, USA Hockey, The YMCA, the Boy Scouts of America or another strong organisation of a similar dignity and with the full power of credibility. This organisation also need the genuine interest...

Then in reality we have also written several folks and organisations and asked them for either support, interest, help or just maybe an answer.
Some very important folks have answered, some have been engaged and some have made a good difference.
But, there is also a bunch of recipients that - either missed our contact approach - or just decided that the initiative to wake up North America about Floorball was not worth to get engaged in.
Whatever their reason - hm maybe we should post upon some of the silent souls we have encountered? Do you want to hear who does not listen to our call? ;-)

So will we now close down this fiasko?

No, we know there will be a breakthrough one day - if it so will take until the day when real Athletes walk into the big Summer Olympic bowl and Floorball sticks are waved in the air.

For now we will hold on to this current 100.000 hits “fiasco”. Only waiting for the support that we know will be here. You may start support us yourself, already now by spreading da word about Floorball.

Hold out dear reader.... we do.

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!
