Less than a week to 2013 Midwest Floorball Championship


We, have all teams in, and it looks like we will have 8 refs, working in pair to cover 6 teams playing in the rec division and 6 teams playing in the advanced division. This means that we will have the largest Floorball tourney ever played in the US Midwest. It is true that the first ever Floorball tourney in the Midwest also sported 12 teams. But the teams we played with 2011, had in general 20% less players.

The Tomah Parks and Rec are still working to sort out the brackets, times and games for the 2013 Midwest Floorball Championship being played in less than a week, Saturday April 13th. Games, and exact times are to be announced Monday April 8th, by the Tomah Parks and Rec.

As we look at the advanced division Chicago seems to have a stronger team than ever, and since this division has been won previous years by two Chicago teams this could happen again. Minneapolis/St Paul however has a team this year with many new names on it and something tells us that this could be the strongest team from the Twin Cities ever.
A Tomah, WI team that played and lost only with 2-4 to Chicago Innebandy last year, should not be counted out either, since these players have improved during the last year.

The Rec division will mostly be conquered by the same team from Minneapolis that won last year. On the paper they look too strong for the other teams and it would be a surprise if they not win this division. Behind them it looks like a fairly open field and many teams should have a good chance to play the finals or at least in the semi finals...

But, the ball is round and anything can happen.

We will be back with more information as soon as we have further details.

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!
