Another reason to like Floorball


Nope Floorball is not free of concussions - but it is a good - or a much better alternative to collision sports - where the point - in Floorball - is to play with the inside of you head - more than the outside.

The Verge has an interesting article on the subject of concussions is collision sports...
Let us just quote em' too:

"AS MANY AS 3.8 MILLION AMERICANS EXPERIENCE CONCUSSIVE EVENTS AS A RESULT OF ATHLETIC OR RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES EVERY YEAR"

"WE NEED OUR KIDS TO BE PLAYING SPORTS... BUT THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO DO SO SAFELY."

Here at Floorballcentral we say that Floorball is a much better alternative and less prone to the bad use of the outside of the head.
Psst. it is more fun too ;-D

We do not think Floorball needs this for instance

Then as a parent you decide what you want your kids and yourself to do, right?

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!
