Floorball 101

Why play floorball?

Floorball is a great sport for everyone.  It’s a fast paced sport that is suited for players of all ages and abilities.  The rules promote safety among players with minimal contact on the body or stick allowed.  The sticks are made of carbon (and/or) fiberglass, and won’t damage wood or synthetic surfaces.  The ball is designed to be controlled, and go exactly where you want it to go.  Unlike floor hockey you won’t have to use a puck that jumps all over the place, or an street hockey ball that can damage your facilities walls.  Floorball players may wear protective eye guards, but unlike floor hockey, players don’t need protective equipment to play.   The cost to get started over the long term is affordable.  The equipment is designed to last, and is a worthwhile investment for physical education, intramural sports, and recreation organizations.  For facilities and organizations looking to improve participation, floorball is a popular sport among men and women.  If you’re looking for a versatile sport to add to your sport offerings floorball is the sport to add. You know the why but what is Floorball?

What do we need to get started?

All you need is a stick and a ball to get started. For around $40 you can start playing.  You can play anywhere and on any surface from gym floors, asphalt, grass, synthetic turf, or tennis courts. Floorball can be easily adapted to suit your programs needs.  At Floorball Guru we’re here to help you get started.  Our expertise in creating programs from the ground up can help you get your program off the ground.

“I want to thank you so much for your help. Floorball here at SU would’ve never stood a chance without your guidance along the way. We begin our playoffs next Monday, and for a first time sport, it has gone really well. There was definitely a learning curve, but I think having properly trained officials has made all the difference. The game could’ve easily slipped into floor hockey with floor ball equipment, but thankfully our officials set the tone early and the participants have adapted quite well.  Thanks again for all your help.”
