Important milestone reached in the Dallas area floorball development

An small but important step for floorball development in the Dallas / Ft.Worth metroplex was achieved on Saturday 5/17/2014. The first season of the North Texas Floorball League came to an end with the championship games being played in Arlington, TX.

The league was created four months earlier by forming three teams from existing groups who have played in the area for years. The teams were named “Ft Worth Floorball Club”, “Ballcrushers” and ”Baltic Bangers”, the latter two former around a group playing in Flower Mound under the name Dallas Fireballs. By creating 3 teams a league could be formed and a season of 11 games was scheduled from February to May 2014. Throughout the season, the teams played very competitive games and the Semi-final between Ft.Worth and Baltic Bangers was a great game decided in the last minutes of the 3rd period to the favor of Baltic Bangers. Unfortunately, the Ballcrushers, who has won the regular season, could not gather a full team to the Final so Baltic Bangers won the first league championship after beating Ft.Worth 5-3.
The founders of the league (David Friedman, Jukka Kotti and Kim Aaltonen) sincerely hope that this first season was the beginning of something great and that future seasons will see even more teams fighting for the cup. The Fall 2014 season is already scheduled between 8/25 and 11/17/2014.

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.
