This competition ends the Roller Hockey year in Netherlands, after one year full of events that try to put again this country in Europe Roller Hockey map. Just to remember the Dutch year had it big moment in San Juan with a participation in World Cup. Unhappily any youth team took part in both young competitions taking place this year in Barcelos (U20 FIRS World Cup) and Geneva (U17 CERH Euro Cup), but a great program of Youth Clinics in some cities was a great success.
All roller hockey fans wish that next year this situation can continue, and Netherlands could be part of European/World Youth Cups, and also a special one, Netherlands can help the renaissance of roller hockey in Belgium, and who knows in Luxembourg!!!
