Spliss


"The SPLISS (Sport Policy factors Leading to International Sporting Success) network of organizations coordinates research in regard to high performance sport policy and its relation to elite sporting success. As a network organization SPLISS also develops and shares the outcomes of research with policy makers, National Olympic Committees (NOCs), international (sport) organisations, and researchers worldwide."

Interesting huh?
If you agree - here is way more on this subject

Of course we picked this up from Floorball resources in Sweden - but this is valid for all sports. With its aim for elite sporting success we only keep half of our eye open - since we think the big value in sport is not always in the elite segment. But the grassroot movements is where you find most benefits for any society - we think. However the elite is crucial too to drive interest for the masses.

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!
