Sexism as it comes to uniforms?


Grandpa always liked female beach volleyball. Not too much because of the sports action, but more for the outfits the ladies wore.

In Floorball most ladies use the standard outfit, but we do have seen some more exotic female teams playing Floorball in skirts. Just like they often do in field hockey. We like skirts on female Floorball players we think it looks female, proper and cute. We also think it gives the sport a more pronounced gender identity, and yes it is a bit sexier too - or as we say in America - it makes the players look attractive. We do not think that attractive players in a team sport makes the perceived value of the sport lower - but higher.
So in our own opinion it is not wrong if female players play floorball in skirts.

As someone yells "that is sexism" from the barricades of equality. We respond, we like the celebration of cultural values too - so we think Scotsmen should play Floorball in kilts. Celebrate both gender and culture and show the world.
End of discussion.

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!
