EuroHockey Youth Panel elect new joint chairs for upcoming two years

Posted On 11/01/2023

The EuroHockey Youth Panel have elected Cedric Vermeiren (Belgium) and Chloe Jordan (Wales) as their new joint chairs for the upcoming two years. 

They were elected at the panel’s meeting in December in Hamburg which was held in tandem with the European Indoor Championships where they also laid out their plans and upcoming events for 2023. 

Key among them will be the Youth Leadership Festival which will happen in August in Mönchengladbach following two cancelations due to Covid.

In Hamburg, the EHF panel met up with the DHB’s equivalent panel to discuss the layout of the festival. Both Cedric and Chloe were previously involved in the 2017 festival as participants.

** The aim of EHF Youth Panel is to “give youth the real voice in European Hockey development, providing a platform for young leaders to express their views.”

As an example of where involvement in the youth panel can take you and the doors it can open, Cedric was recently one of the participants who took part in ENGSO’s Erasmus+ Sport-funded Sport for Sustainable Development project job shadowing activity in Tokyo, Japan.  

Speaking about that opportunity, he said: “The Sport4SD project in Tokyo has been an absolute eye-opener. Learning about sustainable development in correlation with mega sports events has thought me a lot. 


“Thanks to different workshops, guest speakers such as Ms. Etsuko Yamada, and presentations from other participants, I have been able to open my mind and learn about different topics and different strategies on how to tackle sustainability.


After the training course, a smaller group of participants stayed for three more weeks to take part in the job shadowing program. 


“This program allowed us to have a deeper look into the sustainability strategy of mega sports events with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games as a case study.”
