It was in a snow storm. They had some cup issues and one player fell and hurt himself... Beside of some things that may occur as you try hard.. at the dawn of things. Floorball was tonight played for the first time at United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado. That is news that sounds like music to us here.

Then just a few hours earlier we heard via Twitter that the first Floorball Clinic in Palm Harbor, Florida was up for grabs.

Wellington News from New Zealand spiced things up further today with this story..http://wellington.scoop.co.nz/?p=64076  from a country just a little bit ahead of the US.

We quote;
"Floorball was first introduced in New Zealand in 2008 and has since won an incredible popularity at all age levels. Wellington has currently around 800 active players across all age groups. Other clubs and groups are located in Auckland, Tauranga, Christchurch, Palmerston North, Upper Hutt,Queenstown and University of Otago.

Games for the World Floorball Championship Qualification are played over 5 days at the ASB indoor stadium in Kilbirnie. This will be an incredible opportunity to see highly-skilled players in a sport that has quickly become popular in New Zealand."

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!
