More Hockey and Floorball related news from BC today

Just in from BC
Let's toss in a quote too...

“For several years, we have been working with the dry-land hockey trainers of Prep Camp to highlight Floorball as a fun, yet smart, cross-training system for hockey skills development” say Greg Beaudin- President of BC Floorball “Integration in to the camps have been the hurdle, but now we have an easy-to-rollout model that can be implemented by the Camp organizing team, the Kids are going to have a blast playing Floorball…they always do.”

Nate Leslie Director of Prep Camp LGS Sports has a totally new perspective on the sport of Floorball as he was GM and Assistant Coach of the Canadian Men’s Floorball Team last year.

“Floorball is fast, it’s technical, and at the highest levels, it’s incredibly athletic. Its easy to understand why so many European hockey talents embrace this game. The sticks are cool and I’ve seen how our Hockey Camp students gravitate towards them and work on their stickhandling. Throw them in to a game, and they sweat, they have fun, and they develop an important tool set that will help them become better hockey players.” comments Nate of Leslie Global Sports."

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!
