3 different ways Floorball introduction may happen in a new country

This is not only three different ways it is also three different stages.

First you will find individual engagement. Individual engagement is limited to some single souls and even if they can make some big initial loud noise - in reality nothing much will happen.

The second stage is when organizations, like a company or some other entity like a school takes on the stake to introduce a new sport. This phase can make some local change occur but it is still limited to the local environment. Some smaller sport conferences could be considered to belong to this stage. This step means we find change but not at all at the larger scene.

It is only at the final largest scale or with big national organizations that cover a full nation or something that goes beyond this we can start to see real implementations and a movement forward.

Two things are utterly interesting right now in this light as we put Floorball in the sport spot light.
We have this

But it is also a fact that Floorball now is an official global sport for the next Winter Special Olympics in 2017 that takes place in Austria. If this does not initiate some organizations within the USA to start to initiate some development rather soon on US soil? We will continue to scratch our heads here. Right now we just think it is a matter of time until some nationwide organization will take some sort of an action.
But it is indeed not until the US Department of Education wakes up - we will see the real change we so eagerly are looking for...

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!
