Direct from Hot Florida - Floorida Floorball

Mr. Kivilaakso is one of the devoted souls that make Floorball experiences on American soil possible - as we now in 2012 wait for many more Schools or  Hockey like related organisations to discover the joy of Floorball.

Here is his direct report from the sunny side of Florida. If you live down there and are interested in some December Fun Floorida Floorball... Let us know - we will connect you.

Floorball FLA organized exhibition games in West Palm Beach to promote floorball and make it
more known around the region.

The exhibition games were held at a local ice hall SkateZone and at CityPlace, the vibrant city
center of West Palm Beach. The exhibition game at SkateZone was played right after a public roller
skating hour, so many interested skaters stayed to have a glance at the new sport at hand.

More exhibition games will be held in Florida in December 2012!

The fast pace of the game attracted many passers-by at CityPlace and many of them wanted to try
floorball themselves. Everyone willing to try floorball had a chance for the games were played 3 on
3. Players from many backgrounds and with different skill sets played together and had a fantastic

In every exhibition game a qualified referee conducted the game and made sure the new players
were playing the game it is intended to be played without infractions.

An information stand was set up to provide players with information about floorball and the rules
of the game. Floorball videos, hit songs and a presenter created a great atmosphere in every
exhibition game.

The games sparked a lot of positive interest in the sport and many young players asked about the
possibility of playing floorball as a hobby in Florida.

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!
