Concussions...and headbanging..updated, we are wrong.


Floorballcentral is safety.
WE even think that girls doing figure skating should use a helmet. We have heard about too many young girls hitting the Ice - head first.

Then we have the NHL... the US government estimated a decade ago some 76 Billion (no not million BILLION USD) was the cost of concussions...(taxdollars baby) for the US, yes most due to war or traffic accidents. But in sports American Football does not have an impressive record and Hockey... well...



Now you should know why Floorball is a good choice.. It is indeed not protected from concussions,, but with soft boards and lightweight equipment... things looks a bit... or far more promising..

So what do you want to engage your kid in?

This is what we posted earlier - what is wrong with this?

The problem is that we compare things in its own domain. That is so wrong, since the largest problem there is - is not to pick among things.
The main problem is that not enough kids do sports or activity and that is something that we can not even put a price on. And what is worse - there are no economic incentives that kicks money into sports from all the billions of medication and treatments spent to heal people.

The economy is focused on to deal with fires - not to prevent them. And that is the problem number ONE.

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!
