Philantrophy - its Phloorball style

We have earlier touched base on the "Floorball for" project a couple of times...
The Swedish stick brand Speedhoc just recently posed a larger interview.. and World of Floorball just ran a condensed version... so we will condense one more time....

Speedhoc recently posted am interview with Hansjörg Kaufman from Floorball4all. This is a man that’s doing good to underprivileged children and helping them through floorball.
Floorball4all goes around the world to different countries with a goal to teach floorball to street-kids in poor areas. They have been in countries like Brazil, Benin, Nepal, Mozambique  Kazakhstan etc. There they use floorball “As a sport and youth activity for the prevention of addiction in the troubled neighborhoods of this world, with a focus on third world and developing nations. And who knows… Perhaps it will reach the Olympics eventually…”

Here’s an extract out of the interview, read it because it’s to see what can be done though floorball and what you can do!
 Can you tell us about some countries you've been and your experience there?
I've been in a lot of different countries all over the world. Every trip had its specialty. Very impressive are the trips in Mozambique and Nepal, where the poverty is very, very touchable. For me, it’s always a little bit like coming home, when I visit our projects over there, meet the trainers, who has become good friends and when I see, what happens through floorball. Naturally it is for me a question of heart to come back to Brasil, because here everything started eight years ago.
How has the reception of the sport of floorball been in new countries?
With our sport we have the good luck that nobody knows floorball. For everybody it’s a new, attractive, dynamic and fast sport. Everybody can play floorball very soon. We don’t need much of material and the floor doesn’t really matter. That are all arguments why the reception of floorball is very good in new countries. And last but not least: everybody knows that you can’t earn a lot of money with this sport, so corruption has no interest in floorball. That’s our big advantage over football.
How have you experienced the cooperation with Speedhoc?
We are very, very glad to be a partner of Speedhoc. In this cooperation it is not the business who reigns but the heart and the personal contacts. A lot of Speedhoc material has found the way into our countries of use. With this Speedhoc helps to make a difference in this world.

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!
