Feelings from SLL to the harsh frontier...


C-O is one of the best Floorball players for his age group in Wisconsin (competition is still very very sparse)
The worlds best Floorball league - the SSL in Sweden - just kicked off and after about three rounds...
We see a handful of teams making a bit more scores than most other teams. We also see a few teams that have allowed a bit more scores in their own net - compared to the others.
So as we wonder how they feel - we guess the producers of many goals feels just great and super strong... kinda.
But the ones with a bunch of allowed scores behind their own goalie must now focus to not develop fragmentation of the team spirit...

So how does this connect to frontier Floorball? Floorball played in the middle of no-where - at places where most people - and schools remain clueless?
Well, when we play at the frontier the score and the results does not mean too - much - a little yes... but for us at the frontier we care about other numbers...

So when we normally starts to get closer to our own big tourney in the spring. The numbers of active players shoot up and as we have engaged up around 50 players on Sundays - well then we feel as good as the best teams in SSL. We feel strong. But when numbers are low and we struggle forward on a skeleton crew, in the shade of all other big ol' sports. When we go forward on the most dedicated souls - well things can be a bit more fun.. so we must also focus to avoid fragmentation - of our own team spirit. Just as those SSL teams.

Tonight, the kids participation in Floorball at the frontier was surprisingly very very good and all the kids had a very fun and healthy time. This made our day! The teen and adult session was running - but hey we need seriously to recruit players here - as that group is just making both ends meet for now ;-)

So if you want to try Floorball in Tomah WI and are 13 plus of age. The High School is full of action from 6PM on Sundays!

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!
