To the tune of squeaking shoes and the rhythm of plastics

Back - in lost eons of time - when we tried to play Floorball in funky rooms - found at Universities in Gothenburg Sweden. Yes, this is at the time when we even played in rooms with ceiling pillars and walls covered with mirrors. Almost bizarre conditions to normal standards of today...  Imagine a full wall filled with mirrors for young girls to dance ballet in front of - but you hunk down and use it for Floorball instead...
Yes that is a chapter in itself.. just imagine to play with a mirror wall and the mirror image of the ball going - do you think someone ran into that wall too? Well, Anyway.
At some point during this time we did some experiments with music too.

It was cranked up music from boom-box big volume - what did we think? Hm, we probably had seen some other high intense work-out being performed to music, so why not?
What came out of it?
It is hard to guarantee that the memory is right (since we ran into the mirrors a couple of times) - but it was kind of annoying to go and switch side on the tape player each 30 minutes, then the sound level was either too high or not pumping enough. If you truly are focused on playing a little bit better floorball with full focus and prestige with your buddies - well then the music is just like a loose hat or something that does not fit the costume.

We do not know what other people at other places in the world have as the experience playing Floorball to loud and forceful music? It would fun to know.

Today, we think the best music is that tone of squeaking shoes on the floor and the rough beat of plastics.

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!
