How would you describe innebandy floorball?

What do you think of the sport?
"We played twice a week in Sweden and this is to me a dream coming true. I made some of my closest friends playing innebandy in Sweden."

Would you play again?
"We are going to try to play again and invest some money in real sticks sponsored by the school."

Michael LeSaur, a 20-year-old literature student from Erie, Pennsylvania:

How would you describe innebandy floorball?
"I have never played this sport before. It reminds me of floor hockey."

What do you think about the sport?
"Iím not very good at sports but itís fun to run around and hit balls."

Would you play again?
I would do it once in while. I rather do this than sit around in my room.

Christian Kerrigan, 21-year old Elementary Education student from Seattle, Washington.

How would you describe ĎInnebandyí floorball?
Poor manís hockey. We play with cheap materials and anyone can join and play.

What do you think about the sport?
We had a lot of fun today. It was competitive and a good spirit.

Would you play again?
I would definitely play again.
