    Default Anybody ever heard of Floorball?

    It's not a "big" sport like soccer, hockey etc around the world but it's really popular in Finland and Sweden and it's growing all the time. This season floorball is the second biggest indoor sport in Sweden (when you look at the attendance in the national league), with only hockey being bigger. In Finland there are about 335 000 people who play the sport. That means that almost 15% of the population plays the sport in some form.
    It's a very fast paced game and you gotta be really skilled to play it on the highest level.

    There ain't a lot of english sites about Floorball and I couldn't find any from the USA but here's a link for e Brittish site:

    All of what it says there isn't true cause there is some contact in the sport. There has to be when you're running as fast as you can. But anyway, I just wanted to know if anyone knows what the sport is..

    EDIT:

    I found a Canadian site:

    We used to play this in gym class in high school. They didn't call it floorball. They just called it hockey even though their was a ball instead of a puck and no skates.

    We played this in gym class as well. Floor hockey is what we used to call it and it was always good for someone getting checked head first into the bleachers. I can remember vividly seeing people carted off to the nurses office after eating some wood or concrete. Game on!
    Was always a gym class favorite.
