New Game ideas?

Örebro in Sweden has been able to win the GOLD twice in the main National Swedish Youth Floorball League - and that is a remarkable feat.
The world's largest Floorball Magazine "innebandymagazinet" picks this up and talks with intensity about new tactical triumphs and a new kind of "man-against-man" game. They write about a new kind of offensive Floorball based upon some very old ideas. And they do not just have one article up on this but many..
Words like speed, stamina, strength and high pressure is used as the philosophy is explained and how the team leaves the traditional zone-game to play; player-against-player with high offensive pressure.

We will not cover all of this here. But we just want to share a small part on how some defense ideas works...
The defense in your own zone for instance.
copyright innebandymagazinet
Spelare = Player, löpning = running, Passning = pass, motspelare = attacking team, bollen = the ball
1) The defending left wing goes home and charge the attacking forward in the corner together with own left defender - to gain ball control
2) IF the attacking forward still makes a play out from the corner, the defending team performs a full rotation
3) Defending right wing forward turns to become the new left wing forward
4) Right defender moves up to become Right wing forward
5) Center forward becomes left defender
6) Left Defender moves to the center forward position

Hmm interesting and maybe something to try in other sports too, huh?

Full story here, but U must Google translate or similar service...

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!
