The society is different but sports stay the same?


This is how it looked like in 1939 in New York (embed code via liveleak)


It is like 74 years ago and all people we see are most likely long time gone.. But we notice something more - where are all the fat people. We think you will not see one single overweight person in this clip.

Now think - what sports did these people do?
First we want to be fair and guess that they did not do as much sport as kids or adults do today - but in essence we think most people in the clip of above if they did a sport  - and since this is filmed in New York.. well we guess that Basketball, American Football and Baseball and perhaps some Hockey too was big on the agenda for some people.

Good.
So what do we want to say with this?

To be blunt we say one thing. With the enormous amount of overweight people in today's society we say - it is a serious problem that too many kids gets too involved in too much low intensity sports. Low intensity sports that was designed to more be a social game than provide a decent work-out? Low intensity sports invented a century ago - does not make the cut the kids so well need in today's young generations.

Now you go figure what a low intensity sport is and then you may agree that much time invested in that could perhaps be a waste of time 0h a serious waste of time.

This post - wants to firmly imprint that Floorball is a modern high intensity sport - that better may meet the current demands from an overweight population...

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!
