Some balls you just must be first on

This is from Canada - Oh Canada Oh Canada.

""Kristen Kehoe had a life-changing experience representing Canada at the World Under-19 Floorball Championships in Poland.
The 17-year-old Holy Cross Secondary School student helped Canada earn a silver medal in the world B Division with a 3-1 record. She arrived home Monday after two weeks in Europe including trips to Prague, Czech Republic for pre-competition play and Berlin, Germany for a team excursion.
“I feel like I'm different now because I believe in myself,” said Kehoe. “I feel like I can do anything now if I put my heart to it.
“It really changed my perspective on things,” she said. “Now I know to never give up and to follow your dreams and to believe in yourself.”
What makes Kehoe's story special is she had never played floorball, similar to floor hockey but with short stick and light ball, prior to trying out for the national team last fall. Her teacher, Bond Bjorgan, recommended she attend the tryouts based on her hockey ability and athletic skill. She impressed head coach Todd Crawford enough to crack the lineup." "

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.
