Sport specific information

Why this sport?
"I got into this sport thanks to my mother and thanks to an acquaintance who was already playing. We met at the doctor's office and agreed that I would come to Dolny Kubin to train with the Slovakian national team. I will say that I was not interested from the beginning. But gradually, I got to know all my teammates, coaches, and physiotherapists. There was always a good mood in the locker room. We all made a really great game together, and that was the main reason I stayed."
