#MotivationMonday Development plans discussed in Sweden

Posted On 6th November 2017


Between October 24-25th 2017 the European Hockey Federation (EHF) President Marijke Fleuren and Development & Education Manager Tom Pedersen-Smith visited Gothenburg at the invitation of the Swedish Hockey Federation, the purpose of which was designed to provide the EHF with an update on developments for growth in Swedish Hockey. There was great confidence in the ideas presented by Björn, Ella and Monika from the Federation including recent feedback from clubs and members to improve both indoor and outdoor competitions, whilst plans are being created to improve the workforce and discussions took place around holding Level 1 courses in 2018.

The EHF have asked for a refined development plan to be provided off the back of the visit and the ideas that were shared. The EHF are keen for nations to work together where geography and resources allow and there is certainly scope for this across the Nordic cluster. The meeting was a great success and gave time to see some of the playing facilities within the country. There was also fantastic feedback about the club structure growth throughout the whole of Sweden.

If you have any questions around this visit or would like the EHF to visit your Federation please feel free to contact Tom Pedersen-Smith, Education & Development Manager by email development@eurohockey.org
