Black River Falls - Dry-land training



Michael Phelps just recently said that he would interest himself a bit more about Ice Hockey - after all, he said, hockey involves water too even if it is frozen.

Yesterday the first session ever of Floorball took place at Black River Falls in Wisconsin.
It was also most likely the first time in America that a Swim-team used it for dry-land training.

A Swim-team? Yes.

Here are a few reasons: Swimming demands both fast reflexes as well as good co-ordination and good balance. Floorball may offer that.
Swimming is typically a sport where the athlete are subject to rather constant loads. Floorball offer the sometimes more efficient intermittent load. So that is a good feature as you want to vary your training.

On top of that Floorball is rather fun and therefore also motivational.

And yes, there are no problems to play in a swim suite too.
- Guess what!
They will do this again.

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!
