A hot day in North American Floorball.. Updated some mistakes, sorry


First we hear from BC Floorball, that just announced, oh well it was the local government and rather Ms. Coaralee Oaks, Honorable minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and Mr. Bal Gosal, Minister of State, Sport that announced more support and a new grant to BC Floorball.
BC Floorball themselves announced a new President in Mr, B Zimmerman and via Mr. G Beaudin we learned that BC Floorball now have been awarded close to 50,000 CAD over the last 8 months to develop the sport, and through their Floorball challenge program they have had some 17.000 potential players exposed to Floorball lately

From Toronto the drum beats that the Maple Leafs Hockey school steams on with full Floorball power. This is done under the guidance of Mr. Greg Schell, he is the Director of the Leafs Hockey school since forever almost ;-) (we speak experience here), and Mr. J Mikkola and Mr. B Jutla from Floorballpro - for sure did not the Toronto NHL player Carl Gunnarsson show up too...  here he is if you do not know him a bit better http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Gunnarsson

In USA we had our big day yesterday, when we think the largest ever (so far and U wait) US kids clinic that took place up in CT, under the management of Coach Janos and Mr. Laeben... and if they continue like this well then things will start to happen big here too - Mr. Laeben has promised an article and we will re-post it here too, most likely with a video clip.
You know what they will do it agin next week and..

In Florida this takes place next week..



Then by now out dear American National player Mr. Costi is playing the game of his life as they try to set the new world record in the longest ever played Floorball game.. Eh the facebook page is all in Finnish and rough to understand - but we think the most recent score was 53-78 just a few hours ago, the game should be over tomorrow morning at some time...

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!
