#FridayFocus – the Youth Festival lineup continues to dazzle

Posted On 8th February 2019

The EHF’s Youth Festival will run from 13th – 17th August 2019 in Antwerp. It is an official side event of the Belfius EuroHockey Championship.

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

Today we are beyond thrilled to announce that TOP umpires Laurine Delforge and Marcin Grochal will take to the stage to talk all things umpiring. How they achieved their dream of umpiring at the highest level, the highs and lows and the dedication needed to get there. An unmissable chance to get inside the world of the third team!


Not only that but we have partnered with self-pass, the game changers on how we think about hockey!  Read more….

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.

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

Contact your NA and make sure you are in with a chance to be part of the future leadership of the EHF!
