" Hamilton Elite: Ready For Another Championship Battle 


The Hamilton Floorball Club established itself as one of Canada's top floorball programs when they clinched the Canada Cup Elite Division crown in 2011 by defeating two-time champs NYCFloorball. In 2012, the club made the finals again but this time narrowly lost 7-6 in the championship against a highly favoured and European reinforced Salming Vikings. Along with the bitter memory, the players on the team are left with more than enough motivation for this year.

Last year at York University, the Hamilton Floorball Club (formerly known as the Hamilton Floorhawks) faced a team heavy in top European talent, the Salming Vikings, which included two Team Sweden players Rasmus Sundstedt and Mattias Samuelsson. After a goal by Hamilton's Connor Smith got the scoring started in the first period, the Salming Vikings slipped four past Hamilton, quickly setting the pace of the game. Hamilton responded and was able to match the intensity tossing goals back and forth within the second and third periods, eventually losing the game by only one goal.

“That game was a heartbreak overall. That's a game that me and the rest of the guys will remember for the rest of our lives,”says Hamilton's Andrew Radjenovic."

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.
