Welcome message from Youth Leader,Ute Eidinger
Youth Development is a key focus of the Development Projects Committee.
Our main aim is to grow the number of players across Europe by 10% every 2 years.
This is a really tough target especially in hard financial times but we firmly believe that a growing the base of hockey we will over time improve the quality of top hockey across Europe.
The main support we give to Youth Hockey comes from:
- EHF Youth Panel: we develop our young leaders by engaging them in EHF Youth events
- EuroHockey Youth Competitions: we offer both EuroHockey Championships and Regional Championships tournaments to offer U16 and U18 players International experience
- EuroHockey Youth Festivals: we support several Youth Festivals every year to show young players that hockey is more than just playing
- EuroHockey Skills Challenge: we produce resources to allow all young players across Europe to measure their skills against the best
