Floorball defy gravity and slopes the ice

They often say Floorball defy gravity and then they show some zorro tricks. That’s good.

Like in this one:

Hm, we think Floorball defy gravity in one more way.

As you pour water onto a big flat area and it is ice cold, well the water distributes fairly flat and the ice is almost horizontal, due to gravity.
This is the way it has been for a long time. ….

But as Floorball in school exploded in some countries - we suspect that the Ice has started to lean slightly a bit in the favor of the countries that sport a deep Floorball penetration in school.
No, not literally but as in a good illustration of the advantage Floorball in school gives some countries.

It slopes the ice.

So we say Sweden to some extent play Ice Hockey on a small but significant slope downwards since they have such a high penetration of fast Floorball and stickhandling skills in school. But we also think that countries with no Floorball in school play ice Hockey on an small uphill slope.

We are not talking about an incline of 30 degrees. But we think we see a small incline of like 1-4 percent or degrees in favor of countries like for Sweden, Finland, Switzerland and the Czech republic in particular as they play Ice Hockey cultures with no Floorball culture in school.

This is another and the second way that Floorball might defy gravity.

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!
