Goalie trouble in Sweden?


According to Innebandymagazinet Sweden. In the last SSL game between AIK and Vaxjo the Swedish national keeper kicked players. One player became knee injured. This has led to an official complaint in written form to the Swedish federation. And according to the source Innebandymagazinet - this could possibly and technically prevent the Swedish national keeper from participating on the Swedish national team during parts of (or) the World Floorball Championships.

Nope we will not translate this - but you can use online translations for these articles here:

Our take on this is that we do not know anything more and we have not seen any video of this so we can not say anything in particular about this.

But in general terms the rules changed to allow foot pass this season - meaning you can kick the ball to another player. But if kicking players instead of the ball is true? Well then that foot pass rule might need to be clarified a bit for some players ;-D

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!
