From the PE science dept.


Here is some cool research on the impact of small area games...

Floorballcentral thinks out loud!
Good research - and it confirms floorballcentral's own experience and thinking. What we do miss here though is a comparison between different sports too. We say - a comparable heavier ball - compared to the weight of the players - creates a slightly slower game pattern as compared to using a very lightweight ball - the light ball does not only travels faster - it also changes direction faster.. This means some ball sports - provides even more intense movements and action - transferred into a fast acquirement of skills and health . We wish for the numbers measuring this too ;-D

Here is our own foundation for small area games...

We wish more PE teachers and both Soccer and Hockey coaches knew and used this knowledge today...

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!
