Dear Junior hockey players & parents,
We are excited to kick start team selection and training for the USA teams that will compete at the next Age Groups Underwater Hockey World Championships in Sheffield, England, August 13 - 24, 2019.
The 11-day event promises to be an excitement-packed athletic festival, with more than 30 teams from all over the world. Here’s some more information from the organizers:
It’s almost over… Bittersweet game for the U19 girls today. They did a beautiful job winning against Great Britain this morning with a score of 3 - 0, but I am sure they would have much rather been playing in the medal rounds. I am sure they would have had a solid chance to beat both South Africa and Australia, but they never got the chance to play them again. Their final standing is 5th place.
The bug has spread. All ten of our boys share two suites and now six of them are sick. They drag themselves out of bed looking in sad shape but they tell me they will be there for this morning game against Canada. If we win, we continue to play and if we lose, our tournament is over.
