Kids - A blunt call to use your own soft hands!

Excuse us, as we want to be a bit blunt.
Kids in any hockey education that is denied or deprived from dry-land training with Floorball - they do not have the same platform as the others abroad and their chances to become as good as a hockey player can be.. well in our opinion, this is not right.
It is obvious to anyone that has been raised with Floorball that it makes a difference. And many many raised with Floorball (and hockey) agrees ... on this -including top notch hockey players..

As some American hockey coaches discuss to play either full ice or cross ice - well that discussion is not very constructive since - science already knows what is best...
Instead why not try to focus on something that is constructive and could make a difference?

So if you like hockey and your Youth Hockey Association - or school or whatever... If they do not offer Floorball as a form of dry-land training? You have to do something yourself - since your own leadership on this is not yet in place.

The guidance from different federations or clubs or other organizations on this in North America (at most places) is often not in place. With some excellent exceptions - that you might find on this blog... So maybe the rest of you - need some micro revolutions led by the youth players themselves?

The evidences are, to us over-whelming, and Floorball will not stop - it is only here to grow. So if you want to give yourself a similar chance as the kids in Europe have... You have to either demand Floorball - or take the matter in your own hands -
- use your very own sweet and soft hands please!

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!
