The insane feeling... of being upside down


How to best describe the insane feeling of living in a Floorball empty country? Hm, not an easy task. Okidoki there are a few limited Floorball groups deserted into loneliness - maybe their own loneliness.. and some folks try harder than others. But the reality in 2013 is still harsh for Floorball in America.

The reality is that Floorball is still utterly rare - ok non existent - in almost all schools. The number of clubs - that almost never play other clubs are small. And most clubs rely on expat European or Asian folks often more happy than good... The number of YMCA's sporting Floorball = close to zero. Churches organize a lots of people but not Floorball. Scouts has never heard about Floorball, and companies are very if not extremely unlikely to use Floorball for teambuilding experiences, sponsoring - oh what?. The Military spends many billions but not any cents, on Floorball. Doctors and/or medical professors, and politicians as well as most people within the Olympic committees - or even within Special Olympics - are lost too. Hockey clubs or Universities.. - well let us not even go there...
The health insurance industry - is playing a game that is out of bounce as seen from a Floorball perspective.
There are money, resources and personnel - but no aim at all

The best way to describe the insane feeling... of an acute lack of Floorball... is probably to say: "rake America into a pile - toss out Basketball from everyone's mind - and U are the only one in this world who knows about Basketball - well, how do U feel now?"

Ok, maybe we R unfair. There is light in the tunnel. The Olympic track is utterly interesting - with soon like 10 years to 2024 - maybe a "holey" year... Canada has cool things going. Things that will turn critical when momentum moves in. We think Special Olympics International will say something very special next month - so special that it might have the power to move things forward. Dallas Stars seems to have a good thing goin' and maybe USA Hockey too.

So even if times are still a bit depressing as compared to the largest Floorball nations - doubtless - we R 100% convinced. Time is not the problem - it works for Floorball - and yes. Floorball will turn this country big time upside down. Floorball will write sports history in America as a new dawn....

Being wrong on this? Well that word... does not even exist in our vocabulary.

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!
