Are U a Mite or Squirt Hockey Player close to Minnesota?

“Are you part of a Mite (8U) or Squirt (10U) hockey team?  Would you like the chance to play in a FREE floorball tournament with your teammates while spending time at the greatest hockey event in the Upper Midwest, the Let’s Play Hockey Expo?  If so, then here is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of one of the biggest hockey events of the year.”

The Let’s Play Hockey Expo is being held at the RiverCentre in St Paul, MN on Friday and Saturday, March 7th & 8th.  Held in conjunction with the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament, this is a can’t-miss event for every hockey player.  Now, for the first time at the Expo, FloorballPlanet, with the support of Minnesota Hockey and Let’s Play Hockey is pleased to host a Youth Floorball Tournament on Saturday, March 8th.  Designed to let hockey players experience the fun and excitement of floorball, the tournament is open to any 10U or 8U hockey team.  No prior floorball experience is needed and participation is totally free.  We will have two floorball courts set up in the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in the St Paul RiverCentre with genuine floorball boards – just like those used in World Cup competition.  

The tournament will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning and will end before 7 p.m. Each team will have the opportunity to play at least 3 games.  Ideal team size is 10-12 players but you can register with as few as 8 players.  There is no body or stick checking in floorball so players have the chance work on their stick skills and team play.  Bring a T shirt, shorts, and sneakers and plan to wear your hockey jersey.  Floorball sticks will be provided for all players but there will be a large selection of sticks available if you would like to buy your own to play at home.  

“The Let’s Play Hockey Expo is FREE.   The 8U/10U Floorball Tournament is FREE.  Don’t miss this great opportunity to experience floorball in competitive games, work on your stick skills and have a blast at the biggest hockey show in the country!”

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!
