Everything is the world's largest in America

Next weekend we will have the World's largest consumer fair for Hockey - and this time they feature Baseball too - so some 40.000 visitors are expected - but you know what... Thanks to Floorballplanet... we will see Floorball in action too.

Mr. Gross at Floorballplanet just shared with us some of the plans on a Floorball Seminar that Floorballplanet will offer free of charge at the Expo next weekend and... here, well, we will share these notes with U too so you have the grasp of what is going on.. too.

Have you heard about Floorball?  It’s a fun, fast paced, exciting, safe, and low-cost type of indoor hockey.  Floorball resembles floor hockey; however it is played with advanced lightweight sticks and rules that make the game much safer.  Originally established in Sweden in the 1970’s, Floorball is played by millions of people in over 50 countries around the world.  It is very popular in Canada and is rapidly becoming a sports phenomenon in the United States. 
I would like to invite you to learn about an exciting opportunity to introduce Floorball to schools in the State of Hockey.  The Let’s Play Hockey Expo is being held next week at the St Paul RiverCentre on March 7-8, 2014.  With tens of thousands of attendees, this show ranks as the premier hockey event in the United States.  Admission is free. 
FloorballPlanet will be hosting a “Floorball in Schools” seminar late Friday afternoon, 3/7 at the Expo.  At 4 p.m. in Meeting Room #2, we will be presenting a 20-minute Power Point presentation about how to incorporate Floorball in a school PE program.  While the presentation is geared to PE professionals – teachers, coaches, and administrators, it is open to anybody with an interest in starting a floorball program in any organization.  Following the slide presentation, we will adjourn to a special floorball rink area for 45 min to an hour of floorball drills and scrimmage.  Attendance is free and everybody is invited to participate.
As a special bonus, we will raffle off a Floorball School Set (sticks, balls, bag, and Floorball Training Guide – a $500 value) to one lucky participant in the seminar.  Join our seminar and win a chance to outfit your PE class with floorball equipment for FREE!  
Floorball has been adopted by schools, community centers, hockey programs, and other organizations across the country.  While floorball is popular with hockey players at all levels for skill development and dryland training, we are seeing huge growth with the incorporation of Floorball in school programs.  It is ideal for school PE classes and is appropriate for any age level – elementary, middle or high school.  Since there is no body or stick contact with floorball, it is easily played coed and with mixed age groups.  It is very inexpensive and kids LOVE IT! 
FloorballPlanet is the largest floorball equipment supplier in the United States.  We have introduced floorball to hundreds of schools across the country.  Based in North Texas, we have presented at the TAHPERD many times as well as CAHPERD and LAHPERD.  We will be staffing a booth at the Expos with all the latest floorball equipment as well as videos and information about floorball.  We will also be hosting a Mite/Squirt Floorball Tournament on Saturday, giving young hockey players the opportunity to try floorball in a competitive format.  This will also give coaches and parents the chance to observe just how this fantastic sport contributes to the development of young hockey players and see first-hand the excitement it generates.
This is a unique opportunity to introduce PE professionals in Minnesota to a great new PE program and it’s totally free.

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!
