Floorball is an indoor game, similar to ice hockey, but it is non violent, so we can play safely at  highschool. It is a fast team sport with no physical contact . Floorball is also called floor hockey, innebandy, (in Sweden) salibandy (in Finland) and unihockey (in Switzerland).There are many professional leagues, such as Finland´s Salibandyliiga and Sweden´s Svenska Superliga.
