Men’s National Team Programme

Inline Hockey Ireland is committed to improving the level of play of inline hockey in Ireland while also enhancing the stance of our sport in Ireland. A key element to this is the successful implementation of a National Men's Programme. This programme is designed to give the best chance of success for Ireland on the international stage, while also giving junior players something to strive for.

Structure of Programme

Each season, there will be open tryouts held early in the season. Any player that meets the eligibility criteria will be able to attend, but players must be registered to IHI for insurance purposes. Players could also be invited to join the training squad based on strong domestic play or an unable to attend trial application.

Following tryouts, a training squad will be selected which will then have regular training sessions throughout the year with more regular training after the season ends in the build up to summer competitions.

The target for 2021 is to attend the Roller Games in Cartegena, Columbia.

Player Eligibility

Players must be a minimum of 15 by January in the year of competition, so for 2021 competitions players must be born on 01/01/2006 or earlier. Players must either hold an Irish passport or be eligible for an Irish passport (and have that passport by April 2021). For information on whether you are elegible for an Irish Passport through birth, descent or naturalisation please visit,


As inline hockey is 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. We are committed to financially assisting as much as possible, but we need to be economically sustainable. Therefore 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 players are encouraged to support fundraising and sponsorship efforts as much as possible
