The Scotland Korfball team is looking for players to join the squad. Trials will be held in Edinburgh on the 6th and 7th October and are open to all korfballers who qualify to play for Scotland*.
The trials are designed to select a team to train for the Euro-bowl, which will be held in 2013, with the aim to qualify for the 2014 Europeans. Having qualified for the Europeans in 2010, in which Scotland was placed 15th, our goal is to develop a strong squad to beat this achievement. This is an exciting opportunity for developing players to take the next step up from competing in local, regional & national leagues.
The Scottish Korfball team has a program of regular training weekends, tournaments and matches arranged in the lead-up to these tournaments. As such, any interested players should be committed to attending as many of these as possible. For instance, the squad has just returned from a training weekend in Holland, where we played in the Velocitas tournament, trained with top Dutch side PKC and trained with video analysis. The next training will involve a tournament in Holland and some friendly international matches and will take place 1st – 4th November.
Please contact Andrea for further information or to register interest. If you are unable to attend the trials, but would still like to be considered for the squad, please send an email with a brief description of your Korfball experience.
*Players are eligible to join the squad if they, or any one of their parents or grandparents were born in Scotland, they have lived in Scotland for 3 years, or will have lived in Scotland for 3 years at the time of playing the in the Euro-bowl (2014)
