David Jansson Pixbo - with visionary thoughts on the PowerEdge Pro

Ok first... Yes if we did not get his wrong - we do think that the PowerEdge Pro guys... are talking about developing the PEP a bit further towards Floorball yet... the next idea is to refine that blade being used - for sure it looks like a hOckey blade.... and yep you got it right - maybe they will fit a Floorball blade onto it to make it a better Floorball tool... Let's see... if that happens..
Maybe we have not be clear enough about the PowerEdge Pro by the way... It is not only an obstacle for hockey or Floorball... it is indeed an obstacle that is hooked up via an Ipad - with specific Hockey - or in Pixbo's case Floorball drills - that are Ipad connected... so forget all your old plastic cones - irrespective if you play Hockey or Floorball..

David Jansson (Team Canada's National Floorball coach for the male team & head coach for Pixbo in the SSL) speculated a bit on the future of the PowerEdge Pro and this is what he did say:

Development and Integration

I see two clear developmental paths for the PEP in Swedish Floorball. One track leads towards top level Floorball, and to use them as Pixbo Wallenstam has used them. As a skills obstacle in different drills. As it comes to the schools I envision them to be used more as a tool for individual skill development. One way could be to develop different obstacle courses where players can do specific movements and practice their own individual technique. It is mainly only your own fantasy that sets the limit how you may use the PEP and this is incredibly exciting. As it comes to pure recreational Floorball I am however hesitant about the use of this tool for skill developments.

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!
