OK,

Here is our first post that just dug up the source files...
.........and now enjoy the quotes
This is what Mr. Lites and Mr. Dillon from the Dallas Stars just had to say:

“Childhood obesity is an epidemic in North Texas and we feel that as a sports franchise we have the responsibility to use our resources to help promote awareness and solutions to this serious issue,” Lites said. “We have designed a program that teaches children how to establish lifelong healthy habits while incorporating the physical activity of the sport of hockey.”

”Staying active and eating healthy as a child were big reasons why I was able to achieve my goal of becoming a professional athlete,” Dillon said. “Getting to be a part of a program like Fitness Stars is just one way that I can encourage healthy life choices and help kids in the same way people helped me growing up.”

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!
