Floorball update from Jamaica

"Finally, I can say something about the floorball project I came here to work for. I gave it a month so I wouldn't have to report anything negative but it is still difficult. It's more than a month since I arrived and I certainly had a good time getting to know my new home and its surroundings. 

I also had 3 trainings with my club so far. I love my club! It is organized by a community center in a little village outside Spanish Town. The community is small and strong. There are always people by the community center and they play a lot of sports. The community center is really important, I think, to give young people something other to do than roaming the streets and getting involved with gangs and drugs. So my trainings were always fun. 
The kids are really enthusiastic but it was still possible to control them and making them do the exercises I prepared and they did really well! They learn very fast and you can just tell that they all play a lot of sports because it all comes really natural to them. I know if they continue they can make the Jamaican national team soon."

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!
