The first and main point is Communication. We will hold many Skype calls and communicate as a group of leaders monthly to handle all items that need our attention. Another key point is that we will deal with the physical body contact that is creeping back into our game with direct route bodychecks. We will clean this up through our newly created Referee In Chiefs who will be selected by us in the summer to make the game more safe. Our goal is to reach out to all our nations to create a safer game. This is important because we want more players to want to play our game and that means the youth of the World. And this is a cornerstone of us to create growth. A safer game brings more players to our sport.
Finally we asked all of our nations to come together and work for the common good of the sport. And I would like to say that the Board of Directors for our five cornerstone nations were all in agreement in the direction our sport needs to go to move forward. And this could be seen in the beautiful Czech embassy we had our meeting in.
This year the ISBHF will hold its World Championships in the Czech Republic. This nation loves our sport and will open its arms to players of the World coming for the World Juniors and Masters. The cities of Pisek, Strakonice and Pilsen await. In addition we are hopeful that another World Club team championship will have great success in Villach, Austria. No doubt a great year of International play awaits. And the ISBHF wants these tournaments to be the best they can be for our players.
All in all it is with great pride that I follow in the footsteps of the Presidents and Executive that have our game in a great position to move into the future. I can promise you that our ISBHF Board of Directors team will move to make the game reach higher heights during our tenure. We are ready to work for our over 100,000 members around the World!!
Have a great 2012 season.
Wort des Präsidenten
Präsident der ISBHF
"To our worldwide ball hockey community:
The ISBHF family of nations are proud to announce the location for the 3rd Master's World Championship to be held in September 2014: beautiful Tampa Bay, Florida. This celebration of Master's players will also proudly host the 1st Women's World Masters.
The Tampa Bay area offers players, family and friends many interesting things to do, and may even offer our competitors a nice swim in Florida's beautiful waters in the warm weather after a game or even before! There are places to go, sports events to see, and of course ball hockey featuring the players of our ISBHF nations.
