Woah... Let us quote and focus a bit upon the size of this...
First this - "Dallas Stars President and CEO Jim Lites announced today the launch of Fitness Stars, a physical education pilot program aimed at fighting childhood obesity through hockey-based fitness challenges. The program will launch in all 26 Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District elementary schools during the month of November, serving over 14,000 children as phase one of the initiative."

This is what they further say:"The program kicked off today at Thompson Elementary at a special pep rally in the school’s auditorium followed by a street hockey clinic for third through fifth graders put on by Dillon and members of the Dallas Stars Alumni Association.
The Stars will donate all necessary hockey equipment to participating schools which includes Floorball equipment, Fitness Stars bracelets and collectable charms, wall charts to track children’s progress and additional instructional materials....Top Fitness Stars each year will be honored on-ice during an intermission at a Dallas Stars home game at American Airlines Center."

The next cool thing comes in this part:"Phase Two of the program will involve expanding to 100 additional schools and recreation centers by 2014. Fitness Stars is supported in part by JCPenney, Children’s Medical Center, FloorballPlanet and the Dallas Stars Foundation.

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!
