From 1-2 August Albena, Bulgaria was host EHF Hockey South East Europe Region Forum.

After short presentation by the hostNA, focus shifted to future development:
 Youth – Panel/Camps and Festivals
 Hockey4All – Para Hockey
 Get and Give/ Pitches and Kit
 National Federation Project support
 Club of the Year Awards


The President of Turkey Hockey Federation gave a presentation on facilities development in Turkey (Olympic size hockey pitches).

The forum was also an opportunity for some Get & Give time!


MHC Leusden and EHF organised for some GK gear to be donated to the nations participating in the forum and the EHF Youth Hockey Camp that took place following the forum. MHC Leusden is a family-oriented club near Utrecht. Club member Joost van Eijsden, who is responsible for all the club’s GK gear, kindly arranged for some of the gear to be donated.


Bulgaria hosted 5 other countries at the forum: Armenia, FYR Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.

The first goalkeeper set was given as a prize to the best goalkeeper in the  EHF Youth Hockey Camp, which ran from 3-8 August.


EHF would like to thank MHC Leusden, KNHB and especially Joost for all their work.
