Hungary is not only about green peppers in school


It is reported via the IFF... here is full  story;

We quote with a picture and a few lines... from the IFF.
"

"Floorball has become really popular in Hungarian schools and a big step forward has been taken with the so called "Student Olympiad". Nowadays this 3 versus 3 championship between schools is the second most attended sport in Hungary.
More than 460 teams from around the country are participating in the school championships and only football (spelled soccer here) is more popular."

Why should this not happen in the USA too? We have tonnes of prominent organizations like the Let's Move initiative as well Active Schools ASAP and many other - including obesity fighting organizations - this is not a handful number of interest groups - they are many - that wants to get kids going in the US and most of them base what they do on serious research and use some of the most distinguished professors in the field.. then we just came to think about designedtomove.com with Nike and tonnes of interest groups behind it...

But still we have not seen one single important US organisation that care about kids and health to step up or forward to talk about Floorball?
 - are they home blind? Or do they use blinders as horses do?

We do not think so - we think they are just slow - and a bit too slow - it will change here too - we promise.
But we are utterly curious on who will take the initiative and lead..

We think however that -
Last into the water is a donkey! ;-D

Caution

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!
