Korean News Jan 2013


Just a few basic facts from an article published today at the IFF.

Korean School Sports have used Floorball for a very short time..

2012 Korea had a large School Sport Championship with 32 different disciplines.

Floorball was - this the very first year it was used in these games - the 9TH largest sport out of 32 - with 850 players involved in Floorball, all were local champions.
That means that they instantly - almost -  have 23 other Korean School sports behind them... not bad huh?

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.
