The best thing you can do..



The best thing you can do for Floorball?
Is that to donate money to this site? To invite a friend to Floorball, or to get engaged in your club, to advertise the sport, or in other ways promote Floorball?

Well, all these things as of above is good - but we think there is something else that is even better.

We think if you buy yourself a new stick - that is the best thing you can do for Floorball.

What?
Let us explain.
First of all - a new stick means that you cater to yourself - and if you not become a better player with a new stick you will at least get some broader experience and in essence you might also therefore become a better player. So the first reason is that you take care of yourself.

The second reason is even better. Now you have two sticks - so what do you with the old stick? Here is where the serious best benefit kicks in - there is three things you can do. First you either sell your stick to someone that does not have a stick. This someone will with this stick become even more glued to Floorball, since she or he now own their own stick. Or if you feel that you like someone good enough why not just donate your stick to someone that would make good use of it. 


The main idea here is to have your second stick still used and not sitting in a closet - it must be used by someone else. 

This trick - to buy a new Floorball stick - each season - also means that you yourself will have the latest version of the stick you want. This means you take the initiative - and it is not Mister or Mrs. Newbeginner that comes hauling in to the gym with the latest, as in -  the courts coolest stick. No, you are.
In America you have another rather cool option for your old stick. If you take it to the Goodwill they might actually give you a donation receipt - something you can deduct from your taxes - and this means your old stick will be back on some sort of a market - even if just as a toy - and your new stick will be supported by the money you may deduct on your taxes.

If you by chance live in one of the countries where Floorball is a big thing, you might find it hard to donate your old stick to another new player. We would advise you to look for instance on Facebook and find a friend outside of your area/country and send the old stick to a friend at a place where Floorball is rather unknown or small - instead.

OK, we know some people will say - no I will not buy a new stick just to feed that Floorball industry complex. Well in essence - first of all a lot of the money some companies makes on making sticks are invested back into the sport as support for tournaments, clubs, players and stick development.
And the truth is if someone in the USA would like to become rich they would most likely have opened a dry cleaners instead (we have heard that there are few industries compared to dry cleaners that generated such a bunch of millionaires). So do not worry not too many people have become millionaires on Floorball - yet.

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!
