Eric - a CLEVER - playground story


Eric has a playground in his neighborhood. It looks great with swings and some regular playground equipment.
Eric's playground is also equipped with a rink. Not a Hockey rink but a fixed Floorball rink made out of wood. His rink also has 2 fixed installed Floorball nets.
Eric goes here many nights a week to play with a ball and a stick.

Do you think he has fun? Do you think he stays for hours?

Eric is 5 years old.

Eric's stick-handling is out of this world.

As I compare Eric to our own Carl-Oskar (with the best Floorball stickhandling in Wisconsin, for a 7 year old) - lets just say that Eric is light-years ahead of Carl-Oskar - but 2 years younger..

Hmm, do you think Floorball may help for instance Hockey or Field Hockey?

We think - that - without - floorball - hockey kids - in america - well they do not have the same chance or opportunities as Eric does. Or more bluntly - the Europeans will rip em' apart.\

In our world this is a true but sad reality.

The secret in this story is that Eric's mom works with one of Sweden's very best Ice Hockey teams...

Let's just say that we think she is a clever girl,

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!
