Floorball Introduction, CT Yankees Youth Hockey

Last weekend, we spent a great day with a bunch of enthusiastic kids at Chelsea Piers Stamford, most of whom had just learned about floorball and were seeing it for the first time.
We were scheduled for 60 minutes, but finally after three hours, one brave parent finally said, "Well it is REALLY time to go now, these kids haven't wanted to stop for hours!"
Seeing kids pick up the sport and get so immediately enthralled is so exciting to The Generation Floorball team! 
The CT Yankees Youth Hockey Organization was established in 1989 to help boys and girls excel in the sport of hockey. CT Yankees is one of the leading youth hockey programs in Connecticut.

Please check out some photos and videos! 
Coach Lauris is instructing the players. They have never heard of the game prior to the clinic, so for sure some bending of the rules! 
Thanks to Chelsea Piers in Stamford for hosting the introduction!

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!
