Seattle Vikings

We just had a great report in from Floorball Vikings in Seattle. It is interesting to hear that they play with the same game format as they used in Brasil recently when they decided on the first ever Brazilian Floorball Championships
Our contact man Mr. Stefan wrote us the following write-up:

Vikings Innebandy, the Seattle Floorball Group has been playing Floorball in the Greater Seattle area since before 2000.  Several of the founding members are veterans of Innebandy from Sweden, having grown up playing there in the early days of the sport.  One player even claims to have been there from the very beginning, playing with crooked branches and pine-cones.  

With a core group of Swedish players, we have through the years included players from the U.S., Sweden, Finland, Canada and the Czech Republic; mostly recreational players, but at least a couple players with elite club or professional experience from Sweden and Finland.  We play a modified version of Floorball with a 4 v 4, small goal/no keeper format.  The group is open to inquiries from experienced players looking for a place to play in the Seattle area, or to anyone who has an interest in checking out this great sport.

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!
