Floorball in Indian National School Games



This is a personal report provided by our dear friend Mr. Mrinal Naugain

- It Was really a great news for us when we heard that Floorball is now a part of School National Games and there'll be a Floorball tournament officially recognized by SGFI ( School Games Federaton of India ) at Rajnandgaon Chhattisgarh, India, January 11th - 13th 2014 for Both Under 19 boys and under 19 girls categories. 
We were so happy that It was all because of Dr. Prabhat Kumar (IAS) President - Indian Floorball Federation (InFF) and Dr. Pradeep Singh Secretary General, InFF whose great efforts made it possible. It was really needed!! It'll give Floorbal a push and make it a popular game in schools because now parents feel free to send there child to play Floorball if not for the Sport then at-least for the Scholarship they'll get once they are a part of a their State team of National Tournaments, and the Certificate will give them a chance to get admission in Good Colleges. And For Parents in India that's what matters, a secure future for their child. 
It's obvious with a population of 1,184,639,000 one needs to be sure about about your future generation. And Now Floorball is a Best way to get it. It's New, Easy to learn and and Less Injuries, what else we want. Their child will be physically fit while securing his future with fun. Here more than 250 players from different states participated and near about 700 spectators were present their to enjoy this new sport. 

A total of 30 matches were played in this tournament, Top 3 teams were: 
Boys: 1. Chhattisgarh 2. Delhi 3. Uttar Pradesh 
Girls: 1. Delhi 2. Chhattisgarh 3. Gujarat 
And in the end it would love to say that 'INDIA WILL GROW FLOORBALL, But I've seen it myself how Kids get attracted towards this new sport and how It helps them come out of their shyness by getting them involved with the other kids and make them more confident so now I must say 'FLOORBALL WILL GROW INDIA' like never before. Floorball is an addiction which keeps you alive and Happy, and I'm Happy to be an Addict of Floorball.

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!
