The GB M20 team that won the IHF Trophy so impressively last year are travelling to the Inter-Continental Phase of the IHF Trophy. The competition runs from 6-11 March in San Jose, Costa Rica.
The team are travelling on Thursday 2nd March to acclimatise to the conditions and time difference, and get some training in preparation for the competition. This extra training opportunity is thanks to the kind support shown on the crowdfunding site. We wish to thank those that donated so generously to the team.
We also wish to take the opportunity to thank the IHF for their continued support. The IHF fund the competition itself allowing nations like GB to have the opportunity to compete in these competitions. Without the support from the IHF, this level of competition would not be possible.
This competition will be a round robin against the other teams; Australia, Costa Rica, Cuba and Guinea.
8th March: 19.00 (local time) GBR v Guinea
9th March: 19.00 (local time) GBR v Costa Rica
10th March: 15.00 (local time) GBR v Cuba
11th March: 15.00 (local time) GBR v Australia
The winner of this competition will qualify for the Junior World Championships

With thanks to Kevin Matthews who cannot travel but assisted in all of the logistics for the competition.
Zoran says, "The boys are very excited and can't wait to start competing. They have invested a lot of time and worked hard in the past few months, which was evident at our camp in January. We will continue improving and getting better and we want to thank everyone who made it possible for us to have a very important four days in Costa Rica prior to the competition. I am sure the boys will give everything for their country and represent it in the best possible way."
