Speed comparison - two sibling sports


First we do the sport that all folks know.
Let us just add one thing here - did you know that the stick this player use is a little bit longer and that his stick is used as an exception, due to his own length.



Now lets do the new sport



As You transfer MPH to KM/H or vice verse well the Floorballer shot at almost 127 MPH or 57 meters per second. The Hockey player is doing just above some 48 meters per second.

Why? Two reasons, There are holes letting air through the blade on a Floorball stick - ventilated blades and yes - the puck is just way to heavy for a fast game.

We still wonder why they have not invented ventilated blades in hockey ;-)

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!
