#FridayFocus, today our focus is on youth leaders! The Youth Leadership Festival is an official side event of the Belfius EuroHockey Championships. It runs from 13th – 17th August 2019 in Antwerp.

The Festival brings together youth leaders from all over Europe to share their ideas and vision for hockey for the future.

In 2019 we have partnered with self-pass, the game changers on how we think about hockey! self-pass is a worldwide community of fans of hockey and the guys from self-pass are renowned for their incredible skills all over the world! At the festival they will engage with the participants, challenging them to try out new skills and also giving workshops on the field!

Apart from that, we will have presentations from hockey heroes, and guest speakers leading on entrepreneurship, leadership, business growth, values and principles, marketing, coaching and umpiring and event management.

There is also a competition to be the 2019 EHF Young Leader of the Year! Delegates will present their own work and projects and the winner will present at the EHF General Assembly.

This is the perfect opportunity for young leaders to meet and exchange ideas as well as make new friends and connections all over Europe!

How do you enter?

Each EHF National Association is being asked to enter 2 delegates, one male and one female, aged between 16 – 30.
