2018 is an IHF trophy year for men. This year will provide opportunity for both the Junior and Youth age groups. Date and location of the tournament are not known yet, but we expect the tournament will happen in June 2018 outside of New Zealand.
PLAYERS: If you are interested in trialling, we are looking for expressions of interest from male players:
- Junior (born on or after 1 January 1998)
- Youth (born on or after 1 January 2000)
If you are interested in trialling, please contact the Men’s Head Coach, Ludo Galliegue at firstname.lastname@example.org First trials are expected to be held in Wellington on 14/15 April. Players from out of Wellington who cannot attend this trial will be given another opportunity to trial.
COACHES, ASSISTANT COACHES AND MANAGERS: We are seeking official positions for both teams, so please send expressions of interest to email@example.com
Further information on IHF Trophy from IHF:
The IHF Trophy has been reconfigured for 2018 onwards and now includes two age categories - Junior (born on or after 1 January 1998) and Youth (born on or after 1 January 2000). The best teams from both categories will advance to the Continental Phase, to be held later this year with the winners of the IHF Trophy Intercontinental Junior Championships earning an automatic spot at the 2019 IHF Men’s Junior World Championships in Spain.
In 2019, the IHF Trophy will be for junior and youth women with the same format and qualification potential for the following years’ IHF Junior World Championships (2020).
