BC Floorball on Floorball in School

BC Floorball did today post a new article that explains how Floorball can live in school. What is unique about their post is that they compare it to other existing versions of Hockey emulation in schools.

We do recommend that if interested you may read the full story here at the source

So what is our take on this picture?

A) First we think this is a very good description - and this image explains very much where Floorball fits in as compared to other hockey emulations in school.

B) Perhaps we miss the comparison with the odd form of Hockey emulation - we have seen for elementary school kids - where they are supposed to play using straight round plastic sticks (plastic pipes) - with a big blob of foam as a blade. Depriving dribbling and shooting in a very efficient manner. Uhh holey smokes.

C) Then in our own very humble opinion - we think that it would be a good idea to toss in a set of ANSI certified protective eye wears for the kids too - at least as the very youngest do Floorball. That is what they use in Northern Europe as the youngest play Floorball. It is a good protection and it only cost a few dollars more - and the price per athlete would more or less still be the same - and one more thing - the kids think they look cool too - and you know what - we think they do.

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!
