Heathrow in England is one of the world’s largest air-ports.
With most International passengers passing by here - in the world.

It has just been reported from last weekend that they also have a TV system to provide travelers with some programing. And one of the shows running is like a UK version of GoodMorning America or something similar...
This very weekend one of the clips on this system at Heathrow covered a happy camper from Canada - being in the midst of introducing Street Hockey to the UK.
This clip ran repeatedly on several TV-monitors at Heathrow.

Thats good if you like street hockey. In the version showed we saw Hockey sticks used by kids that were designed to be used as you have skates on (in other words too long) and we saw wooden sticks with plastic blades and kids with padded protection - playing outdoors..
The happy camper said that he had been working for 5 years to get Street Hockey going in the UK.
This is all good...
Until we put on our Floorball glasses...

In reality it is at places like this the new standard - and the new future Olympic emulated version of Hockey - aka Floorball,,, ought to be exposed.

Not some regular Hockey sticks and "pad-dings"...

What an impact and what a target group!

We may only say congrats to the Happy Camper, Street Hockey (with tall wooden sticks) and lick our wounds, since as we want to build infrastructure for Floorball we must first "own the minds" of potential people.

We hope.

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!
