Youth Panel 2015

The Festival has been designated as an ‘Official Side Event’ to the much expected Championships, and we think this is a wonderful opportunity to reward a young leader who is active in helping hockey grow in your nation.

The selected youth leaders will receive training in a variety of areas and will be able to network with other young leaders from over 20 European nations. We find that such networking leads to future twinning and exchanges both a club and national level.

Deadline for Applications is 10th January 2017.
