Teacher? Here Mr. Kim is the real one!

The IFF has a fully outstanding article on Korea up. We have said it before here that Mr. Kim and his team are some the most important leaders we have in Floorball. They do hands on action!

Normally as you want to refer to another article, it is OK to take a quote and then refer to the main article.
Today when we saw this splendid material via the IFF we wanted to plug the full thing in here - but... it is not right to do that..
But we will take the liberty to run slightly more than a basic quote before we serve the link to what is essential..

"It has not always been that easy to get floorball going in the schools. In Korea, most elementary school teachers are women and according to Kim the Korean women are not that interested in team sports like floorball.
- They do mostly yoga or treadmill, team sports is a NO! Most Koreans think all hockey games are dangerous, difficult and expensive to play. But after teaching floorball to the teachers, they see that floorball is fun, not dangerous and they enjoy it.
Nowadays this important development work is done by the Korean national team players, who do over 100 floorball introductions in schools per year."

"The key message that Kim wants to share with other countries wanting to develop the game is:
- Make people experience floorball! The approach in some countries, in for example Asia, has to be a bit different. If you want to develop floorball in your country, don´t wait, visit and teach. When teachers feel it´s good, they will teach the sport to their kids. It will take time but it works!" has one more comment to this - follow the link below and read the full article - for all modern teachers out there

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!
