Floorball is a fast, inexpensive, and exciting sport that resembles indoor hockey but incorporates rules of play that promote safety for all players.
Floorball uses specialized sticks and a light weight wiffle ball and can be played on any flat surface like inside a gym, outdoors on the street, or at community courts.
Floorball is an emerging sport in Canada and is governed by a national organization called Floorball Canada ... endorsed by Hockey Canada and the Olympic Committee.

Adverse behaviors often stem from 'unspent' energy, peer pressure to misbehave, or hostility because of the lack of appropriate adult attention.
