Rescooped by Modern Hockey from Modern Physical Education practice
Scoop.it!

IFF = international floorball federation

The worlds fastest growing team sport... Highly popular during PE, Northern Europe.

It mainly started as a kids game that developed upwards - so no need to accomodate backwards for young players. Many different lesson plans. On track to become Summer Olympic sport - fully recognized by the IOC. Modern "support-sport" to Ice Hockey - larger than Ice Hockey in Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, The Czech republic and Slovakia (all main hockey nations) - and today Sweden's second largest sport. Floorball is fast, strenious, inclusive, affordable and relatively safe. It is all based upon two basic US American inventions - but full technical development took place in Sweden. + 400 schools in Canada is up...

Also see twitter from Singapore (in english) on Floorball. Search terms are - floorball, innebandy, salibandy, unihockey, florbal - "a dear child with many names"
