The basic understanding of developing things..


In education you have two ways to go. Either you focus upon WHAT students should learn - or you focus on HOW students should learn.
The first model more or less limit the knowledge transfer to the students to things already known. And a model locked into this mode (many schools works like this) would in principle hinder further development - and yes we would still today be at Medieval times if going strict on this route.


The other way is more aimed to provide students with the right tools for learning of knowledge far beyond of what the current generation or teacher knows today. This is a model that aims at development.
And since the world is developing fast the education part in some way seem to address this side of learning and development too.

How in the world does this relate to sports?
We say that sports develop too. And we think students are provided with tools to learn HOW instead of WHAT in this field too. But we suspect maybe not as much as in other academic areas - since honestly we have not seen as much invention in sports as in other academic areas and Floorballcentral think that sports may develop in two ways..

Baseball, Soccer, Basketball, and Hockey etc are old almost “medieval” games - but we are certain that the ways these games are played today is not just according to WHAT the earlier generation said was right. But more modern forms of these sports also rest upon the idea on HOW you may play these games - the development rest on newly acquired knowledge by later generations. And yes we say that today's top teams would beat most any other historic team due to this incremental development.
This is development within its own context. 



The more interesting form of development occures when there is a shift of the paradigm and something truly new forms.
Let me just compare it to dumbphones and an Iphone and I think the reader may relate to a leap in development.

Half-Pipe snowboarding, Parkour and Floorball are three excellent examples on how a paradigm shift occurs and how something new and bold forms out from the old. This is a leap based on the notion on HOW we may learn and play in more modern times.

Or in short - if you like the future and development in sports - well, then you will love Floorball 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!
