But what strikes us is two things;
A) For the first time ever Canada goes to compete in Wheelchair Floorball and in EUROPE and that is huge.
B) Second it is very interesting how the referees makes comments upon this - as the referees are skilled regular refs from regular Floorball and the rules are fairly similar - Wheelchair versions of Floor Hockey or Hockey can not compete in this respect - we think - since rules are not as easily transferred?  Then take that spin over to special Olympics and their version called "poly hockey" - where in the world are they able to find very skilled refs for those tourneys? We just wonder here.

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!
