Update 2014 Midwest Floorball Championship (mar 18th)

Tomah are not using Floorball boards for practise and will not have the advantage of the experience doing this in the last weeks running up to the tourney.
Chicago has confirmed participation and will most likely be the team to beat. Still no true female team has signed up - yet.
We know that Minneapolis are in discussions on how to set their teams up. Wausau come with either their team or a team merged with Appleton. Wausau also plan another tourney in the fall.
A team that could be called U9TED might play in the advanced division with possible players from; WI, OK, CO, and MA. This team needs to find a goalie. Tomah will most likely sport 3-4 recreational teams at least if not more, we know that one of these teams at are at this point looking for players. The two former top Tomah teams are in discussion of a merger to create the best Tomah team ever in the advanced division, and one player will come in from WA to enhance this team according to rumors. There could possibly be 2-4 youth teams. But at this point we do not know.
This weekend in Tomah also sport a citywide garage sale. We have also heard rumors about a brat fest? Also all players that will travel may keep the Wisconsin Dells in mind as it is located 40 minutes by car from Tomah.

The Booster Club in Tomah will take care of concessions and we plan to have a stick store up with many new sticks available via Floorballplanet.

We are currently behind with some sponsor development here and we do not have as many baskets or similar items as awards/prizes for the players as we had last year. So if any player or company would like to make donations or bring items that goes back to the players - like baskets, shirts, tools, or coupons, or other monetary donations. Floorball in Tomah as well as the Parks and Rec will be happy to accept items in this respect.

More Updates will follow! We hope!

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!
