It is our opinion...

That Floorball is not growing fast enough in the USA.

Most kids do not have a clue about Floorball, what is worse is that the very same thing goes for most PE teachers and the big majority of hockey coaches and sport journalists too.

There are some floorball movement forward here and there, but not even close to the level it should be at. We think we know that Special Olympics may discover floorball for real within 1 to 16 months time. We think that is not fast enough. Maybe it can spread over from Canada - but that will take too much time too. Maybe USA Hockey finally realize the hockey benefits - like the Canadians already have. But the speed does not seem to be lightning fast there either. Field Hockey seems to be fully ignorant. Maybe toy sticks branded with Angry Birds will shake American kids - but still it will not happen next week... and so much more than some toys are needed.

So what to do? To continue to blog here with furious words and hard facts... or should we change tactics and become much more evil and angry to shake people around a bit?

The kids of today in the USA need Floorball NOW - much more than they need this blog and - much more than they need you and me.

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!
