Here a real Floorball Address - US Olympic Training Center, 1 Olympic Plaza


So How many people in the US Sporting world knows that next month - at the US National Olympic Training Center in Colorado - The US Nationals in Floorball is about to be played... this is a question in itself..
The next question - with its own living soul - is how many "Americanos" knows that Floorball is on a track to the Olympics - and maybe a real fast track!?

Buvarp is the man in charge workin' with this tournament. So we checked in with him and - this is what he said today:
Floorball Colorado, on behalf of USA Floorball, hereby invite players of all skill levels for a very exciting tournament to be held at the prestigious Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The unique world class facility is operated by the United States Olympic Committee and offers the floorball participants to mingle with Olympians from all over the world between their games and the USOC has even awarded USA Floorball an opportunity to accommodate the players on-campus with lodging and buffet style food.

This event is the 2014 National Championships in Floorball that will host players from all parts of the United States. It takes place September 20 and 21 and the venue is the training center’s main gym, Olympic Sports Center I.

It is the premier floorball event in the United States and you’ll get a chance to match your talents with top level players. This is also an opportunity to be seen by USA Floorball staff involved in recruitment for the national teams (Men’s, Women’s and U19) that regularly participates in the World Floorball Championships.

Our take on this?...is not the nitty gritty... This is what dreams are made of...
You play Floorball - but do not think you can last til 2024 or beyond - as the sport might do a real big Olympic splash 
- Hey here is your chance. 
Grab a stand-by ticket (even from Europe) - and then U MAY tell your grand kids...:
I played Floorball in 2014 at the US Olympic Training Center, at 1 Olympic Plaza.
And since I did - I earned my true Olympic Spirit - for all eternity. And some of you will also be able to say 
- We won ;-D

Fire her up Brother and Sisters!

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!
