The Sunny South and a note on the North


Let us real quick check in with the Sunny US South.

Will for instance the Austin male team that won last years US Floorball Championships be able to defend their title out in California later on this year?
One of our sources think so - as long as they can keep some of the players that played for Austin last year.

We also have reports from the SW US Championships mentioning three newly formed teams and one came from the "new" state of Oklahoma.
In May, other Texas stuff.. WACO event on May 12. They will play "night" floorball again. Game starts at 10:30 pm so this is good for all of those who can stay up late.
There is in general reported movements from Texas, Alabama and Oklahoma, with Alabama focusing on kids, (if I am not wrong this activity involves a YMCA, but earlier a military base have been active too). Just a few weeks ago we also detected new movement in both Nevada and Florida too, so for sure it seems like the south is moving forward. And yes we do have a new kids video in from Florida too, but we'll post that one later on.

One thing we do like here is this - as we instead turn from the south to the furthest north.
This is a Parks and Rec in Alaska and I think these two links very obviously point to how the Ice Hockey operation is kind of tied to a Parks and Rec operation. Not very surprising.

Will this happen here too?
Floorballplanet say that this will happen across the continent. Just like many Hockey operations over in Europe or in Canada, they in many cases either use Floorball for dry-land training - or run it as a separate sport. Yes it will be here too.
And this is one of the reason why we drive this blog. What you do? Sit and watch - or get into the drivers seat too - well, this is fully up to you.

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!
