A very fast-paced team game, Floorball is also one of the safest sports in the world and it can be played by anyone - young or old, male of female.

Floorball is an indoor sport with five field players and one goalie on each team. Court can be wooden floor or as above picture shows - stone floor, but one can play this on a street also. When taking it to extreme, play this game on a beach! Each field player has a carbon graphite stick, which is about 3 feet long. The ball is 3 inches in diameter, white, and made of plastic. To make the ball light there are 26 little holes on the sides. The Floorball court is 120 feet x 60 feet with 20-inch high sideboards. (download the rules of the game from materials )
There is a goal at each end, which is guarded by a goalie without a stick. The goalie sits on his knees and can touch the ball over any part of the court as long as he has one part of his body in the goal area. Player has a stick and he can play from right or left. Also both sides of the shaft are allowed to use as well as scooping the ball (compare to field hockey).
The aim of the game is to shoot the ball into the other teams goal but you cannot touch the ball with your head, hand or with your arm. However, you can kick the ball forward onto your own stick. You cannot hit the ball with your stick above knee level. The team structure allows for substitutions and line changes, which are encouraged because of the fast pace of the games. Penalties leading to power play situations are also part of the game. In Floorball players are on foot and physical contact is not permitted.
