It’s 2019 and what better way to start our news from around Europe that with fantastic news from 3 of our Member Associations and one mighty hockey club. Czech, Polish and Austrian Hockey are teaming up with HC ‘s Hertogenbosch via our first ever Erasmus + programme.

The EHF is delighted to be supporting the Czech Hockey Federation’s cooperation with the Polish and Austrian federation on a program called: “Best Practice Sharing of Innovative and Disruptive Field Hockey Skills”. Six trainers from the above 3 countries will visit HC Den Bosch (Netherlands) during 2019 and 2020 to learn from Dutch experts about all aspects of hockey and will share this information with the trainers when coming back. The first visit takes place in April after which more information will be shared on the next steps. Along with the KNHB (Dutch Hockey Federation), we have committed to join this program.

The 3 Federations are looking forward to teaming up with HC ‘s Hertogenbosch on this exciting program and they are proud that this has been made possible with the help of funding from the European Erasmus+ program which is supporting the exchange of European values.

“It’s the first time we’ve engaged on this road but I’m confident that with the enthusiasm of all partners involved we are able to get inspired by each other and will ensure active sharing of all knowledge gained to the very last trainer in each of the countries involved” says Gino Schilders, President of the Czech Hockey Federation
