Sensational Hockey PEP tool makes great success with top notch professional Floorball team Pixbo


Dude,
Some people still think that Floorball has nothing to do with stick-handling, and stick-handling is probably not an art of Hockey either - so how the heck can Floorball have anything to do with Hockey?
If you are one of those readers we ask you to get away from us - in dust and smoke...

Our most popular post on this blog is only about Hockey. But that has not changed our main idea to write only about Floorball here. But - our most popular post here is also about a tool for hockey - the PowerEdge Pro.

Well - Now this is what is going on - how a Hockey tool from Canada is brought back to Swedish top notch Floorball and ---- yes this is how the practice is run at Pixbo Wallenstam nowadays...



Well this is not just a funky video from an odd secret little Floorball practice...

Canada's National male team coach Mr. David Jansson is also the head coach of Pixbo Wallenstam in SSL - and you know what... This top icon in global Floorball - has written us a text about the Poweredge Pro.
This is what Mr. Jansson told us - using his own writing...

Before I was able to try the PowerEdge Pro (PEP)  for Floorball

Instantly I realized the potential in a tool as the PEP. I had however a hard time to envision how the PEP would work in real life? Would the players like the PEP? Would this tool make our skill practice slower and increase frustrations? Or would it be just brilliant? I was very keen from the first day to find this out and I was indeed highly pleased as Mr. Joe Quinn at PowerEdge Pro decided to send me four specially designed PEP for us to use in Pixbo Wallenstam.

The first test with the PEP at Pixbo and at the Swedish Floorball College

The players were instantly curious as I arrived with the PEP’s to the practice. This occurred right after our successful WFC qualifications in Canada. Many players also was interested to hear about the qualifications and how they went, as well as the very latest news from Team Canada. This contributed to everyone being curious about new Canadian influences. We have now used the PowerEdge Pro on all practice sessions we have had in Mölnlycke (our practice sessions are divided with 50% in Mölnlycke and 50% at Lisebergshallen in Gothenburg). The players fully enjoy the increased obstacle that the PEP puts forth. We mainly use our PEPs as an obstacle to move by as we do the warm-up sessions for our goalies. The PEPs function as a pass and dribble challenge. I like them indeed as they demand that the players keep their vision high, to be able to get through the obstacle at the same time as the must find the right angles for their passes to address them properly. It would however have been a great thing if the PEP’s would have been designed to be stack-able, to easily store and transport them, otherwise I can not find anything I do not like about them. I indeed like the PEP very much and they have been received utterly well by all of our players!

So we also checked in with Mr. Quinn at Poweredge Pro and he admits that he is working on a Floorball section on his website at http://www.poweredgepro.com/

This site was not up yat as we published this - but - we have been promised that: 
A) it will be up soon - as it is good enough 
B) More video clips of the PEP used by Floorball is in the pipeline too, and 
C) We have more text on the subject written by Mr. Jansson...
So stay tuned...
and yes if you do not have your own Poweredge Pro yet? Maybe it is time to scratch the head a bit?
We'll be back...

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!
