9 Times Straight

For nine time straight has the Swedish Junior Hockey team (U20) now played in the semi-final at the World Junior Hockey World Championships.

We say here - it does not mean that the same team will beat the Russians Sunday. We also say that even if they do that - it does not mean that they will beat the Canadians (most likely finalist - Sorry Slovakia) in the final.

But we say here that this track record of a fairly small hockey nation (approx 60.000 licensed players) is another clear sign that massive use of Floorball in schools and among the population - does NOT hurt hockey.
We even continue to say - with a clear steady voice - a massive societal penetration of Floorball - that makes many average Joe's into decent stick-handlers - is directly good for Hockey.


As long as other Joe's does not understand this - good - let's have a cup of coffee instead.

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!
