Quick comments on the CB


Recently the IFF released a new CB minutes. This is an awesome source of great information - in particular together will all the appendixes.

If you want to be updated on what is cookin' - we say read it! http://www.floorball.org/default.asp?kieli=826&sivu=700&alasivu=700

We will only make a few reflections and not cover too much here. But it is utterly interesting to read as the President in writing confirms a much larger interest for the sport of Floorball within many National Olympic Committees.

Beside of all the up-coming multi sport events, as we have reported on earlier here, it furthers seems possible that Floorball will be part of an upcoming Urban Games edition. The Universiade seems to lay deeper into the future. But the Youth Olympic Games could possibly lay not too deep into the future for Floorball, 2022 - maybe? What it is YOG -> http://www.olympic.org/news/what-is-yog/195805

We also note that discussions been made between Floorball and representatives for http://www.wfdf.org/ as well as http://www.fih.ch/en/home to investigate routes for possible projects or sorts of co-operation work. We think that is just smashing brilliant.

Then we saw that someone wants to "somewhat regulate" the use of social media as being accredited for larger Floorball events. We are not sure if we understand this and the purpose of this. It could be a positive regulation like instructions that a certain number of postings are supposed to be on an International language - and then that would be a good initiative. But if a regulation would in some way limit the free expression on social media - well, we probably do not have to tell you what we think about that. But we could not understand the intentions behind the suggestion here.. Maybe You do?

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!
