The White Card - how to do it


The IFF supports April 6th for world Peace and Sport with a carton blanc..

“Carton Blanc” (White Card) is the name of a highly-acclaimed travelling photo exhibition by Maud Bernos dedicated to children living in areas of conflict or post-conflict and their daily involvement in sport. The exhibition was displayed at the 5th Peace and Sport International Forum in 2011.
The photos, taken in the Great Lakes region of Africa and in Israel-Palestine, highlight the faces of children who are at the very heart of our action and who are our tireless driving force. The photographer named her exhibition “Carton Blanc” in reference to the red card, which signifies the most serious offense that a player can commit. Here, the colour white, which symbolizes purity and peace, is therefore used to represent positivity and constructiveness in sport."

We say this is perfectly right & we love it - but it could possibly have been done with the full spin too - to us the full spin would have been to not just only support this - but also proclaim April 6th to be the International Day for Floorball too. Sic, we guess we will continue to stress the importance for ONE International Day 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!
