The Canada Story is on via Hamilton


This is good coverage

"Those roots trace back nine years, when Sherwood Secondary School gym teacher Anthony Herrington introduced floorball to his Grade 9 class. Fast-forward to 2014, and Herrington is the general manager of Team Canada, and a number of his former students are key members of his team.

"We've all been playing floorball together since we were 14 years old," said Smith, "I think that definitely helps, and I think we'll see that benefit us against some of these powerful European countries."

Other Hamilton natives joining Smith will be his brother Cal, Joel Inouye, Dan Hewco, Tristan Schram, Billy Petrie, Spencer Ridgewell, Dan McKeen, Chris Haigh, Jeremy Peters, and Andrew Radjenovic, who says once they played floorball for the first time, they were hooked."

From our point of view Mr. Herrington is a legendary pioneer - but hey there is still room for more of his calibre in North America

pst hint to PE teachers..
Another quote..
"I'm pretty sure that's all we ever wanted to play (in gym class). We were pretty upset if we didn't get to play it."

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!
