So let us try to understand what the Stars just did?


This is what we think:

The Stars, have figured out that hockey starts in school. They have realized that it is hard to bring a Zamboni or even ice into class (particularly in Texas). They have understood that playful hockey leads to more serious hockey. They know that most European hockey players are doing utterly good in their Ice hockey and that the big bulk of them are raised on Floorball in and beyond school in Europe.

They know about the obesity and overweight crisis among the modern population. They know that kids must RUN. They know that Floorball may make them run. In essence we think the Dallas Stars Fitness initiative - might both save lives and also build hockey.

The Dallas Stars now initiate a fitness program and may donate knowledge and Floorball tools to schools in Texas… nope that is not what they are doing. Wrong wrong wrong....

If you know Bill Gates - he talks about philanthropy as in terms of investments - and that is exactly what the Dallas Stars is doing. They just laid the foundation for not just larger “hockey-sport” interest in schools across Texas. But also a serious initiative to make kids move to fight overweight problems - and Floorball is a vital tool to do this.
And the final by-product of this - we say here - it will create an explosive growth of Floorball in the USA too. Not bad.

OH yes Dallas Stars has as the first NHL club ever developed their own Floorball stick for kids - with Dallas Stars new logo on them and that is not all - We call it philanthropic investments not only to build health with movements for kids but also to build a much more modern hockey culture.

This move is the most clever ever as it comes to Floorball and Hockey. You would think.. But no wrong again. This is not very clever at all - it is just plain old common sense. The X-traordinary thing is that Dallas Stars is FIRST doing this - at the same time as they talk about it too. As we said before Dallas Stars is now our Fav North American NHL team - forget the rest until they catch up.

We here have been so certain that this would jump up somewhere sooner or later. We just love that both the USA Hockey ADM unit and the Dallas Stars are now building Floorball in the US. It will be exciting to hear more from them both in this subject.
So what’s next? Wait. We are still utterly surprised that Let’s Move and other campaigns in North America like Active Schools ASAP, designedtomove.com and many many others including all those that claim they try to fight obesity..... - but still do they know nothing about Floorball? Outrageous if U ask us...

Today our hints to all these organizations are three basic notions:
A) Kids run when they play Floorball
B) Floorball is a comparable safe and a very cost efficient activity
C) Kids love it. 


All these guys working to improve kids physical activities- now are smacked on their fingers by a private enterprise. Oh well not just any private enterprise. It is NHL baby, it is the Dallas Stars. First with a big move forward in the name of Fitness and Floorball.

OK, what is next?
If you are a tiny little Minor Hockey Association… Do not become lost in the dust. Follow the lead of the Dallas Stars - do the same make certain that your local elementary school have Floorball sticks too. Go there - help the schools with Floorball instruction, some sticks and we can almost promise hockey in your hometown can only soar and become better - it did in Sweden and Finland… and you can improve the physical activity at your schools too and fight obesity with Floorball fitness. 
It is not an option - it is a basic mandate.

On the larger scale?
We guarantee that all progressive NHL Clubs will follow the example of the Dallas Stars - hey! NHL clubs can start to sell sticks too and that means revenue back to the club… Our challenge to all NHL clubs is simple..
U have seen what the Stars just did - what can U now do to beat them? Can you do it better?

Floorballcentral.org promise our undivided love to the NHL club that can prove to be doing this even better.
But of course… being first is always a heck of an accomplishment. Congrats to the Stars....

.....and yes Texas is the world’s largest state right now.

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!
