Womens​ ​Development​ ​Programme

Inline Hockey Ireland is committed to improving the future of the sport of inline hockey in Ireland. Part of this is to attract and retain more female players in the sport. Female players are not currently restricted from playing in any of our leagues from U10 to Elite and that will continue to be the case. All IHI clubs must be welcoming to female players, whether this be welcoming them​ ​into​ ​your​ ​club​ ​or​ ​assisting​ ​in​ ​finding​ ​the​ ​right​ ​club​ ​for​ ​them


Structure​ ​of​ ​Programme

Each​ ​season,​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​tryouts​ ​to​ ​select​ ​a​ ​development​ ​squad,​ ​which​ ​can​ ​be​ ​attended​ ​by any​ ​IHI​ ​member​ ​that meets the criteria.​ ​Players​ ​could​ ​also​ ​be​ ​invited​ ​to​ ​join​ ​the​ ​development squad​ ​based​ ​on​ ​strong​ ​domestic​ ​play.​ ​The​ ​development​ ​squad​ ​will​ ​then​ ​have​ ​regular​ ​training sessions​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​season.

Plans are under way for 2018 events, with a team selected to attend the Barcelona Cup In September. Additionally, plans are under way for 2 teams to attend a tournament in Dundee in October. 

Teams will be​ ​selected​ ​from​ ​the​ ​development​ ​squad​ ​to​ ​attend​ ​these​ ​competitions.


Player​ ​Eligibility

Female players aged 14 or above of any nationality ​that are registered to Inline Hockey Ireland are​ ​able​ ​to​ ​get​ ​selected​ ​to​ ​the development​ ​squad.


Costs

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.


Open​ ​to​ ​All​ ​Sessions

Like in previous years we will host Open to All sessions throughout the year. These will follow a similar structure to those hosted in the past, with a focus on player involvement and development. Female players of any age are welcome to attend these sessions. These sessions​ ​will​ ​be​ ​ran​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Women's​ ​Coaching​ ​Team. These sessions are a great way for new players to start playing inline hockey and meet other female​ ​players​ ​from​ ​around​ ​the​ ​country.
