This site hosts all the general info regarding the European Veteran Roller hockey Invitational Cup, an event to be held once a year (in the Spring or Autumn) throughout Europe to promote veteran roller hockey at its highest level. There are two categories, the well known 35+ tournament (since 2003) and the 50+ tournament (since 2009).
A lot of international interest for the 18th edition
Delft- The organisatiecommite (Valkenswaardse RC/DREAM TEAM 35 +) will make a investigation to see if it is possible for the 35 + category the number of participants from 12 to 16 teams increase. In October 2010 to Castiglione della Pescaia (Italy) is the possibility of up to maximum 16 teams for the 35 + adopted during the delegates meeting. The possibility is being examined of the 35 + teams with 4 teams play in 2 cities (Valkenswaard and Eindhoven) in 4 poules. The 50 + category has already reached the maximum number of 8 teams.
Eventdate 18th edition EVRICup Valkenswaard - The Netherlands
Delft - the decision is taken to the date fixed for two years ago, the 18th edition of the EVRIcup (wednesday 12 september 2012 - saturday 15 september 2012) not to change. A possible adjustment was in research because the C.E.R.H. had recently decided to organise the European Championships for seniors in the same period. The I.E.C. hopes in her contacts with the board of the C.E.R.H. that we can managed such eventdates on the official C.E.R.H calender.
Equal dates for CERH EC and 18th edition EVRICup
Delft - The Committee European Rink hockey has recently announced the dates for the European Championships for Seniors (9-15 september 2012). Despite the fact that the dates for the 18th Edition EVRICup (12-15 september 2012) already in the year 2010 the CERH is informed about the EVRICup data. That is a pity since it mainly consists of EVRICup circuit roller hockey lovers who often have a task as a trainer, coach, delegate or the role of sponsor or member of a national or international committee. These people also like to play in the international veterancircuit of the
EVRICup. The EC for Seniors is, of course, the highest European hockeylevel and the most important but data alignment was desirable. The Board of the EVRICup, the I.E.C., is now in consultation with the Netherlandsorganizationcommittee of the 18th EVRICup edition. There are two options: a. data 18th Edition EVRICup Edition will be unchanged; b. data Edition 18th Edition EVRICup will be moved.
Better control playersage in Valkenswaard 2012
Delft - The sportslevel of the EVRICup 35+ category is in the last EVRICup editions higher and higher. That is a good sign for the event. But for a good and a fair competition is the wish of the participating teams for a better control of the regulation. Special the rule of the playersage for participating in the 35+ category. See the rule on the website item EVRI rules, version 03, 1 june 2011, article 03.08.
During the delegatemeetings in Castiglione 2010 and Sintra 2011 there was a special request by the representatives for a better age control. For this reason, each participant will in Valkenswaard 2012 for his first tournament game (10 minutes before start) personally on age are checked by his passport ore identitycard. The implementation is in the hands of a I.E.C. member with the teamdelegate.
An exception can be made for the goalkeeper or for a player, that long ago the game have played, and during the next EVRICup edition games plays at some moments. Dispensation shall must be the I.E.C. submitted before the official team registration takes place.
Well done England
Delft - A nice thought is that participants in the circuit of the EVRICup excepted to play roller hockey also do a great job on another level in the sport involved. As a trainer, coach, delegate, sponsor, etc. etc. The experience of the participants EVRICup are made available to develop the sport rollerhockey. A good example is Phil Mc. Key of the Herne Bay United Veterans 35 + team. He is the trainer / coach of the first senior team of Herne Bay United in England and place an excellent promotional film about roller hockey.
