The best there is...


The Swedish News outlet Innebandymagazinet has just recently nominated two Swedish players as the worlds best Floorball players. This has been reported too by the IFF in a good post that cover tonnes of facts http://www.floorball.org/news.asp?id_tiedote=3761 and more stuff!

We say it is honorable and right to do this, both for the players in the spotlight as well as for the people involved in the selection process as well as for the news sources reporting on this - good job to you all.

But we think there is a much better focus. We say that the selection of the worlds best Floorball athletes is something that is done in a preserving system and it will not significantly expand the sport. If instead we nominated the worlds best leader as it comes to the art of spreading, building and sharing the sport - the focus instead would be aimed upon the growth of the larger Floorball organism. And with a focus on a growing system we will see more countries, more players and more activity. As this happens so many more players will have the opportunity to become the worlds best player too (not just Swedes) - and competition in the long run will increase and become better (this is just basic LTAD ideas too but on the leader side instead).
Therefore we took on the task here - right now - to nominate that worlds best Floorball leader that in significant ways work to build, spread and share the sport.

Our own nomination goes to the Korean Floorball Federation and Mr. Kim.
We nominate Mr. Kim to the worlds best leader because:
"He works constantly with no exhaustion at several levels to bring more people into the sport. Mr. Kim is not just doing the hard footwork at grassroot levels he is also actively engaged with great organizational tasks too. Mr. Kim further work in an environment where the genuine knowledge of Floorball is small. Beside of his work Mr. Kim is further not quiet about what he is doing - he is a master on social media and that is what we expect from a modern leader that is on a true mission to build the sport of Floorball"

Congrats Mr. Kim!

As with everything in this world there might be people out there saying that - I know someone else that should be nominated to the worlds best Floorball leader. So please be our guest - send us a line and tell us why you know about someone else that is working with dedication to make a difference for kids in this world and Floorball. We did not say that we can nominate people like this every year - but we do think that someone else but us - should recognize some outstanding people for what they do in a much more serious manner.
Yes, we just passed you the ball - what will you do with it now?

Ops, since 31% of all coaches in the top Swedish leagues has been kicked out during the season too - we also think that it is time for some LTAD leadership incentives too - who will nominate the worlds best Floorball coach by the way? A funky blog in a far away land on the brink of eternity?

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!
