Our Junior Mens National Team Programme represents a stepping stone between Under 17 and Senior Men. There is a strong focus on personal player development while learning the structures in place and how to prepare like an international athlete. 

Coaching Team

Structure of Programme

The management team are responsible for selecting a team and reserves to work with throughout the year. The coaching staff will usually hold try-outs each year. This squad will form the basis for selecting the final team that will represent Ireland at annual  Championships events.

If you want to be considered for selection please contact Victor O'Brien (Head Coach) by email, victor.obrein@inlinehockeyireland.org.

Player Eligibility

  • Players must hold an Irish Passport
  • Players must be a minimum of 14 as on January 1st of the year of the competition and maximum of 18 as on 31st December of the year of competition
    • So for 2024 competitions players must be born in 2006, 2007, 2008 or 2009. 
  • Players outside of Ireland are eligible for selection 


As inline hockey or roller sports are not yet recognised by Sport Ireland we receive no financial assistance from the government. This means that all costs have to be funded by ourselves.

The association is committed to financially assisting as much as possible, but we need to be economically sustainable. Therefore unfortunately the majority of costs will fall on the players and their families. However, we will organise fundraising events and source as many sponsors as possible to ensure this cost is kept to a minimum.

All travel and equipment costs for Championships will be paid at cost and payments will be requested soon after final team selection.

Long-Term Goals

  1. To attend Championship events at least every other year  
  2. To be ranked in the Top 16 nations in the World by 2025
