Westchester NY to write US Floorball history in September?

Here is a tweet we just caught..
US Floorball Invitational tournament in Westchester NY Sept 27-29. Sign Up or message me for info. Please retweet! 

It just danced in from Coach Janos aka @Coach_Janos on Twitter.

After a few more tweets, we understand that they talk about three rinks and it sounds like with real floorball boards on em' all...
Hmm this should attract Canadians. Hmm the notice is short. Hmm may they will break the largest tourney ever in the states (we think it involves 16 teams)... It ought to attract Hockey teams, Lacrosse players and maybe some Floor Hockey guys too maybe?
What is the cost? What is the rules? What is the age groups and team levels? Do they have refs?  Is this the same thing as the US National Championships at the Harvey school? Well at this point we are looking for more answers... to get this cleared out... Hold out and we will serve the rest we need to know as..soon as.. we have it.

Would a team from Wisconsin go? Yes preferably. But the reality is the we are on a summer break and most likely players could never ever be able to decide on a thing like this in like 2 weeks time - hmm. We start back September 8th.

Then if they in Westchester get plus 16 teams... well then goal in Tomah WI for the Midwestern Floorball Championships 2014 in Mid April is with no doubt to be in line with those numbers.. we have been at like 12-11-12 teams each year so far and we have renewed interest from far far away for this spring and,,, well plus 16 teams should not be a big problem we think... Tentatively the Midwestern Floorball Championships 2014 aim to continue to be the most cost efficient tourney in America - we will plan for two days and if we need three courts - we will get three - or even four courts.... We also aim for more neutral refs this year and try to source them from different states.

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!
