Northern Red Leafs - on the go for Hockey and Floorball


It is a fact that the traffic from Canada to this blog has been down a bit for some time now. We think even China is ahead of Canada in terms of visits as for example over the past month. But then it is also true that China has picked up their number of visits very good lately too.

Let focus a bit on Canada. First we were happy to be able to share the latest Richmond Hill Hockey video with you yesterday, scroll down to an earlier post if you want to see it. This clip is fully awesome as it shows how Hockey may use Floorball. But remember, it is not only Richmond Hill that is doing this and even if we still are early in the North American Floorball development - we are darn certain that many many Hockey clubs - if not all -will follow in these tracks.

Here are some other news that certainly points to a bright future as we want to get Floorball into the Elementary Schools in Canada.... It is a Floorball job posting to solve this in Canada http://www.floorballcanada.org/uploads/1/2/5/9/12595981/hockey_canada__elementary_school_floorball_program_-_development_opportunity_.pdf

But that's not all. Here is an outlined presentation on how to incorporate Floorball into your Hockey Club in a similar way to in the Richmond Hill video - courtesy Richmond Hill Hockey Association

In all this we do not outline every detail - but we want to hint that - if you read this closely - dynamite is baked into this material and we will get a bit deeper into these matters later on.. so stay tuned. Since these matters are not only crucial to Hockey and Floorball in Canada - it will spill over to the USA too. There is not a single doubt about that.

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!
