Arrgh Arrgh Arrgh Arrgh


The other day we ran across a Youtube clip that was called something like "see when a Floorball player breaks his ankle" or something like it.

Warning, this clip, that we will not link you to, was not on Floorball but on some rough form of Floor Hockey or Ball Hockey.. and yes the player broke his foot.
This may of course also happen in Floorball too.

But our problem with Floor Hockey and many similar versions of Hockey emulations is that they are nasty, rough, hard and therefore has a rather bad reputation at some schools and the sport is sometimes black listed. That is not a problem in itself we think - as we think that is right.
But as ignorant people mix up Floorball with most other nasty forms Hockey emulations - well then we have a problem..
a serious problem...

PLEASE DO NOT MIX UP FLOORBALL WITH FLOOR HOCKEY - IT IS ANOTHER FULLY DIFFERENT BREED

Floorball is a comparable safe sport - but not fully free of accidents. But still we think that compared to many other sports - floorball is a very nice and calm activity and almost like paradise... But yes at times Floorball might hurt too - just ask this guy...

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!
