October – Calling for U17 Beach Handball EOIs

Monday, October 24th, 2016

The IHF is planning an U17 World Championships in mid 2017, which we’ve been told Oceania will have two places at. We’re keen to see if we have enough interest from both male and female players in this age group to form squads to compete for these places. NSW Juniors are encouraged to apply by November 25 please.

If you’re a handball player (or coming from other related sports) and turning 17 or under in 2017 and keen to tryout, please send an EOI to HA’s Secretary-General at along with a short summary of your handball experience and confirmation of your Australian citizenship.
HA’s EOI form and selection policy can be found at…/corporate-documents
