WHAT: Unihockey’s fun, fast-paced play is perfect for cardiovascular exercise; everyone can participate regardless of size, strength or skill. Unihockey is expected to be in 2024 Olympics and is also called Floorball or Innebandy.
Unihockey features optimized equipment and rules that promote non-contact play. Teams are co-ed and a mix of ages. The ball, a specialized wiffle design that provides precise flight, is hit by a stick that features a plastic netted blade. The kid-friendly rules feature no stick-to-stick contact or body checking and sticks must remain below the player’s waist. Also, youth-based Unihockey is played without goalies but safety glasses are recommended.
Northern Europe’s largest school sport and Sweden’s largest indoor sport! Equipment invented in Minnesota in the early 60’s; it is today’s contemporary version of floor hockey.
