Bermuda to host the 2018 ISBHF Masters Championships, Sept 26-30th.

The International Street & Ball Hockey Federation is proud and honoured to announce that the next ISBHF World Masters Championship will be hosted in Bermuda by the Bermuda Ball Hockey Association (BBHA) from September 26th – 30th, 2018!

ISBHF President, George ‘Coach’ Gortsos was hosted by the BBHA from August 10-12th and was shown just an absolutely fantastic time showcasing all that the beautiful island has to offer visitors and spectators alike.

In case you missed the president’s blog from his stay, here is a sample that really encompasses the experience that competitive masters players are going to experience:

“We headed out into the ocean to a wonderful cove where we were met by other members of the Bermuda team. Anchors were put down and 5 boats were joined as one as the shore line about 200-250 meters away from us teased us with a pristine white beach. For me I jumped in the warm refreshing waters and soaked in them for hours. What really made a impact on me as I watched this community is how they do this with their kids and spouses every Saturday. This is an amazing way for these people to bond and relax..”

This is a watershed moment for ISBHF to have the opportunity to have one its premiere world championship tournaments hosted in such an unprecedented, gorgeous atmosphere. Players doing battle by day, followed by beautiful views and a laid-back atmosphere after sunset; this will certainly go down as one of the most memorable championship tournaments in the history of international ball hockey.

The ISBHF wishes to express genuine appreciation to the BBHA for submitting a professional bid, for hosting Mr. Gortsos on behalf of ISBHF, and most importantly of all, for opening its doors to the world of competitive ball hockey at the Masters level!

Masters Camp for 2018 Team

Due to limited field availability the Masters camp weekend has been moved ahead to Saturday Sept 16th.

PLease see details below.

Now that the ISBHF Men’s World Tournament has concluded the HBHA would like to shift its focus to a very serious preparation for the ISBHF World Master’s Tournament likely to be help in the Northeast of the USA in September 2018. We invite all players of Greek descent 35 and over to come and try-out for what on paper looks already like a very competitive team:

8355 chemin Montview

Mont-Royal QC

9:30 am-11am practice/drills

12pm-1pm scrimmage

Cost $30 per player (includes HBHA t-shirt used for scrimmage)

Following this camp there will be an initial selection of players asked to participate on the team that will join a Fall league together (for Montreal players) to have a full year playing together to prepare for the tournament. We also highly encourage players from outside Montreal to participate in this camp.

Players attempting to make the Masters team are strongly encouraged to participate in the full camp (practice + scrimmage). We want to stress the importance of players being committed to showing up to events if you would like to be on this team, commitment to the program events will be a major deciding factor once final selection of the roster is made along with talent, physical fitness and a positive attitude. Please confirm your attendance to an HBHA committee member or the coaching staff prior to this camp.
