We were delighted to receive a significant increase in the applications for this award in 2012 and look forward to receiving your nomination for 2013.
This award is an opportunity for EHF and you the National Associations to demonstrate our appreciation of the work that your clubs do. Clubs are at the core of most of hockey in Europe, not only for the elite players but for all those players and families who enjoy hockey on a weekly basis.
We know from experience that this award can be a significant help to the winners and nominees when:
– Applying for National Government support for facility development or other projects
– Promoting the club and attracting new members
– Approaching club partners and sponsors
We are delighted to request your nominations for EuroHockey Club of the Year, 2013.
Please note some important changes for 2013
The EHF realises that clubs of all shapes and sizes are doing fabulous work for hockey. We wish to recognise and stress this in 2014 by introducing a 3 tier approach to our Club Awards. We hope this encourages many more smaller National Federations to nominate their most active club/s for one of these awards.
Details of the 3 tiers is given below:
1. Tier 1 – Large Club Award this award is targeted at clubs with over 300 members
2. Tier 2 – Medium Club Award this award is targeted at clubs with 100 – 300 members
3. Tier 3 – Small Club Award – this award is targeted at clubs with fewer than 100 members
We hope that by introducing these 3 tiers that we will encourage many more nations to promote the great work done by the key clubs in their country, and nominate them for these EHF Club of the Year Awards.
All finalists will receive a certificate from EHF.
