Religion and Floorball


It is true that where Floorball is strong there are also some strong ties to Religion.

I think this works like when folks are done worshiping and want to do some fun and maybe healthy stuff they often end up playing Floorball. Yes some do Volleyball and Basketball too, but Floorball is sometimes handier...
B-cause, it is more scale-able than most other activities and yes you may play 3 on 3 in a tiny room that is even smaller than a basketball court - so it kind of fits well with many many churches.
Maybe some of these counts the Floorball games as a part of their worship too?

Another clear indication that Floorball goes well with Religion is that as we started to be active on Twitter we almost immediately ended up entangled into large religious networks on twitter. And the main tag we used was #Floorball and in some way this almost happened "as a miracle" the Floorball tag almost became translated into Jesus or something similar on Twitter. Hmm.

It is also true that Floorball is for all so - yes it kind of fits well into several Religious ideas since the activity is kind of inclusive...

Then there is no doubt that some of this new sport expansion into sprawling countries like Brasil and other parts of the world was connected to early Religious groups too, some Floorball was just born on missionary trips.

The natural question now is why then not a country like USA with a broad religious population not have fully discovered Floorball yet?
In USA it was just released that some 46% of the population say that they believe in Creationism - i.e. a god created the world. So there is no doubt about the level of Religion here...
We think that is the reason why, Floorball is shy, here - too.
It must work like this; since there is not too much need of missionary trips to the usa in religious matters - but most religion is instead exported out from the US - that is why the international churches with perhaps some Floorball activity is not able to make a "Floorball dent" in the Churches of the US?

Perhaps that will change one day - we do not know.
We do not dare to pray about things like this - and we also believe there might be people out there that may say that Floorball in itself - might be a religion too?

Alleluia :-p

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!
