Hockey in The USA Celebrates Floorball

Floorball is the reason to the large number of Swedish Hockey Stars. This is a conclusion by USA Hockey - that now will focus more on Floorball for the youth. 

USA Hockey has recently been thinking how it is possible that Sweden produce so many good Hockey players, when only New York has many hockey players as Sweden.
"- They also looked at the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Norway and some others that also produce good players. The conclusion is that the reason is that these countries do floorball in school, as extracurricular activities and with friends." This state the Swedish Floorball (SIBF) development head Mr. Emil Risberg, how has had close contact with USA Hockey, to

Technical skills and the understanding of the game is enhanced by playing Floorball as a youth and this promotes hockey players is the conclusion.
"- Due to this reason they want to introduce Floorball to Hockey children and youth players. At the same time they share the value proposition that irrespective of the sport you chose you must have fun as you play. If they find hockey players that thinks Floorball is more fun so are they as happy if they continue with that," say Mr. Risberg.

If we follow all applicable laws...copyright & stuff we can probably not do this translation... But in the name sake of..  and for Floorball... we think this is still way more important.

Innebandymagazinet has copyright on their material - and normally a translation require a permit - but Sweden sleeps right now and this is so good so it must out fast... If Innebandymagazinet does not like this we will take it down - on the double..

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!
