If you search for answers and find one - that only answer your question.  Is that good? Perhaps, but to Floorballcentral it is way more better to answer a question with another question, since it is questions in itself that drives the quest for further knowledge forward.

If your answer is not revealing new questions and you end up with an answer that is just an answer - your are ending up stuck in your thinking, and you find the goal of any trip - to be the destination and not the trip itself. Not good...

In education it must be crucial to drive knowledge forward at a constant pace and not just end up with some silly answers that seduce you to believe that the matter is solved.
Instead you must be on a constant quest for new knowledge - or someone else will - and you will be smoked.

OK so how does this related to Floorball?

Check this out…

This is a Danish clip that shows how Danish ladies ages 30-60 has played Floorball for 10 weeks. They have an overall increased fitness improvement of 43%. Lower blood pressure and more strength.. and more and more...
No, this is not balooney numbers this is from a serious University research project in Copenhagen. 
Yes the program these ladies has been involved with is… Floorball.

OK so what are the questions that needs an answer.

First we want to know why it is so utterly hard for US officials to recognize or implement Floorball - a sport with strong roots to MNPLS?

Second we want to know how Floorball as a health initiative could become booming fast growing big in the USA - like over-night?

If you have the right questions to bring knowledge forward in this matter please do not hesitate to be active about this matter on social media..

Floorball in Tokyo 2020?
Today an application was sent in by the IFF and this is what the IFF President conclude:

"- I’m really pleased with the message we have been able to convey to the Tokyo 2020 decision makers in the application and I believe it will also show the Japanese organiser and the IOC community that Floorball is the sport of the future. Regardless if we will in the end make it for the Tokyo Olympic Games, the application will help us gather important information and experiences for the coming challenges related to further Olympic application process. The application process and our application will bring our positions forward in the Olympic movement for the coming events, IFF President Mr. Tomas Eriksson comments."

Teuvo on Floorball - & he is doing all things right...

Nope, posting is not too frequent here right now - mainly because - even if we have half a million hits (almost) to this blog... The impact and connections we do via twitter as @ulfjens floorball is way higher as it comes to the measurement to reach out, entertain, inform, and be a pain in the hrm for people not promoting Floorball right.

Teuvo is doing it all right:

“Sometimes I felt like the puck was more times in the air than on the ice, chip it out, chip it in, things like that,” he said. He dominated the 2014 world junior championship with 15 points in seven games for a gold-medal Finland team, and a little unusually, played both hockey and floorball — basically ball hockey, big in Finland — until he was 14. His mom played it, too. Even in a media setting Teravainen lights up a little talking about what he loved about the game.

“Just to score,” he said. “It’s really similar to hockey, no skates, just can do a lot of things with the ball. It’s a really fast game, and you have to make really quick decisions out there, and the ball is really light, so I think it was fun. I think I learned a lot of things from floorball for hockey, like it helped with stickhandling, maybe, getting better at that.”

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!
