Southwest US Floorball Championships

Six teams, fifteen competitive games.  Lots of exciting new players in the Texas/Oklahoma region.

Congratulations to the Southwest Adventist University Team 1 for winning the 2012 Southwest US Floorball Championship (formerly the Texas Championship)! After fifteen hard-fought games, it came down to the wire between SWAU 1 and the Dallas Fireballs. Both teams had identical records, each going 4-0-1. Their one game against each other resulted in a 2-2 tie so the ultimate winner was decided on the third tie breaker, goal differential. Congratulations to all players for an extremely competitive, exciting tournament.

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!
