The Under 17 National Team Programme is designed to give players a good grounding and introduction to international level inline hockey. There is a strong focus on enhancing individual skills and introducing players to a playing structure. Additionally the programme is geared to aid player development and giving junior players something to strive for and remain in the sport.

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 and will regularly communicate with club coaches about players to consider. This squad will form the basis for selecting the final team that will represent Ireland at annual European Championships events.

If you want to be considered for selection please contact Ken Moussat (Head Coach) by email,

Player Eligibility

  • Players must hold an Irish Passport
  • Players must be a minimum of 13 as on January 1st of the year of the competition and maximum of 16 as on 31st December of the year of competition
    • So for 2024 competitions players must be born in 2008, 2009, 2010 or 2011. 
  • 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 European Championships each year
  2. Give players a good introduction in International Inline Hockey
