Floorball in Alabama - Maxwell 2011 & Prattville 2012



We do know that Floorball has already been played on a regular basis in Alabama at the Maxwell Air Force base. If we remember this right is was an returning Air Force Major from overseas that brought in Floorball.
Here is a link of this from 2011

Then we do know that they also tried to run Floorball at the YMCA in Prattville Alabama 2012.

Today several people wonder what Floorball and several other sports are as Birmingham in Alabama earned the World Games.

We think Major Phillip Douglas at the US Air Force was a very clever man!

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!
