How to drink - when playing Floorball

First, if you drink the night before - drink water.

Second, if you expect us to tell you what to drink when U play Floorball - look somewhere else. We think you should be old enough to figure out yourself what is good for you.

Vitamins, electrolytes, colors? We ourselves think just pure tap water is good enough - but the most important thing is that U decide yourself and do not listen to someone that wants to sell U some junk.

But we learned early on in our Floorball career that the bottle you drink from is almost as important... as what U drink.

Many of the custom made bottles we used was not good. They were almost always not big enough... so a few years down the road we started to use 2 liter used coke bottles or sprite bottles and some folks even thought we drank soda as we played... Crazy nutz.

As we started this it did not take long until the funny guy on the team brought a used plastic vodka bottle filled with water to impress and get a laugh - and yes, he did.

The big 2 liter bottles worked good - not in the sense that we drank all the water - but we could moderate the use and get enough - as we did not use commercial available small funky bottles - that never held enough water...

So what is next?
Well we do think at many levels in Floorball - you should look at the opportunity to scare the other team a bit - as a tactical unit to win the game - and this could include your teams drinking habit too. So why not equip your team with a full set of one gallon gas/petrol containers?
Red plastic - haul em' in show em' around - be bold - and drink from them (water of course) - just to make the other team feel a bit fearful. Mark the containers 102 octane or something?!

But if you are first - we are sure others will follow - and we guess  #Oxdog would most likely agree on that too ;-)

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!
