News From Small Town USA - Tomah WI

On Saturday Floorball will be featured as a demonstration activity with the Boys and Girls Club in Tomah, WI for their own "kids day out" at 4PM in Winnebago park, yes this is an activity that also feature free Ice cream for the kids. ;-)

On Sunday Free Drop-In Floorball will be back at the Tomah High School at most Sundays (well, when there is larger holidays we will not be there). The drop-in nights play kids at 5PM and all the Kids (adults that play drufus) above 12 years and up (including geriatrics like myself) play at 6PM. This is an co-ed activity and everyone is invited, the only thing needed is a pair of good indoor tennis shoes with non-marking soles and perhaps a bottle of water.

For the young guns we will play a few games like Baseball Floorball and Indians and Cowboys, beside of just playing Floorball. In the young group we will strongly recommend protective eye wear - and we do have a bunch of them to borrow. But for your own best personal fit we would recommend that our young players invest in their own glasses.

Drop-In Floorball is an arrangement together with the Tomah Parcs and Rec and is supported by the local Tomah Area School District as we use their facility. Drop-In Floorball offer Fun, a decent Work-out, camaraderie, all free at charge (we have sticks to borrow for free too - courtesy of the Tomah parks and rec and Mr. Borg). You can not ask for more? There is no need to sign up - you just need to show up.
Everyone is invited.
Announcements are being made over Tomah as we speak this week - but of course if you live outside of Tomah and want to try Floorball - you are welcome too.

On the annual tournament we have been arranging here in Tomah earlier.. as Tomah Open
We aim for April 13th this year of 2013. The idea is to try to secure this date a bit earlier and this way try to attract a few more teams. The two previous years we have had 11 and 12 teams. We do know that there is some new groups bubbling out, here in the Midwest and we will try to build this tournament even larger if so possible.
Earlier this tournament has been called the Tomah Open - we are considering to make a name change to the US Midwestern Floorball Championships instead - a championship for teams 4 on 4 being played with goalies in an advanced as well as a recreational group.
We aim to be back with more on this as soon as we have secured the date - April 13th 2013.

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!
