Yet again we borrow a post from BC...

BC Floorball visits Seattle Floorball Club

BC Floorball’s Greg Beaudin and Coach Simon Sare have just returned from Seattle, where they met the local Floorball group, played drop-in, and had a development meeting with the founders of the club….Greg’s words below:

In the true spirit of International Floorball development, good games were had between Swedes, Finns, Canadians, Americans and a new tradition was born in The Pacific Northwest between two neighbor cities- Vancouver and Seattle.

The History of Seattle Floorball goes back about 10 years and the story is a familiar one. Stefan , Johan , Magnus, Patrik all shared with us the details of how they came together, and how over they years, the group was able to develop a couple teams worth of players from obvious Floorball nations like Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, Norway and Switzerland…and amongst these players were some US players that gravitated towards the fast, fun and social hockey games that were being played each week in Woodinville, just outside the Seattle city center.

These players are very good, one of their current players, Linda Ekman, hails from the north of Sweden and is one of the best female players to ever hit US soil, for sure. The group were seasoned veterans who really knew how to move the ball. It was very exciting to see this level of play, knowing that a great friendly rivalry was being born right then and there.

I say Friendly because it is obvious that our two groups BC Floorball and Seattle Floorball share a passion for the game and enjoy the great exercise and apres-floorball socializing equally. It was a a real joy to meet new people, friends in Floorball, and a solid connection formed. This is where the development talks started…because we also shared a common goal to grow Floorball in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, and this ultimately leads to Youth Floorball development, they are the future.

So, a partnership was hatched,...and read the rest and the full story here http://www.bcfloorball.com/?p=1657

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!
