Delft - There are many international veteran teams who want to join an EVRI Cup Edition. Some editions ago we started to make some EVRI Cup rules. The growing of the event makes this necessary. One of the rules is the closing deadline for the participation in an EVRI Cup edition. Our friends from Northern Portugal (F.C.

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. Well done Phil ! Interest ? Visit you tube : http://youtu.be/WOslTp_DKeo
Sportshall 18th edition EVRICup 2012 Valkenswaard outdated
Valkenswaard - The sportshall where the club Valkenswaardse Roller Club (V.R.C.) operates with rollerhockey and figure skating is quite outdated. And this sportshall, De Dennenberg, will most probably have to close in 2013. An alternative is not there yet. Marty van den Brand, president of the Technical Committee of the rollerhockey section, says that the floor is a big problem. Van den Brand : "We still hope that we can stay here in this part of Valkenswaard and hope that the community of Valkenswaard understands that. With a good boost, we are on our way." Until then V.R.C. is still playing in an old sportshall. Chairman of the Club V.R.C., Marc Schoonderwoert, the municipality of Valkenswaard has already proposed to renovate the sportshall. "In the short term, we do need support of the municipality," he says. V.R.C. is still in consultation with the municipality of Valkenswaard for a better sportshall.

EVRICup board AED proposal in 2012
Delft - The board of EVRICup will launch a proposal at the delegates meeting of the 17th edition EVRICup in Valkenswaard, Netherlands 2012 to approve the use of AED devices as shown below for the first time at the 19th edition in 2013 Herne Bay England, all according to the EVRICup rules (available on the item in the header of this website) page 4 point 3.18. EVRICup board secretary Rob Verbeek: "The participants from the 35 + and 50 + categories have to regard their health. In our EVRICup rules, we have provided first aid persons. We want these persons to have this AEDequipment available during the rollerhockey games . We hope that we never have to use this equipment but we are caring about the international EVRICup family". . .
AED information: A cardiac arrest is the probability that the underlying ventricular arrhythmia concerns from 60 to 70%. The sooner defibrillation is performed the greater the chance of survival for victims of ventricular fibrillation. If within two minutes through a bystander AED administers the initial surge increases the survival rate to 80%. The chance of survival decreases by approximately 10% to 12% per minute defibrillation is delayed.
A lot of interest from Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Suisse
Delft - More than 2 months before the closing of the registration term (01-03-12) there is a lot of interest to participate in the 18th EVRICup edition Valkenswaard - The Netherlands. Currently, there are 7 veterans teams on the waitinglist who wait if they can take part in the rollerhockeyevent. This decision will not be made earlier than 01-03-12 because in the EVRICup rules (see item on the website) there is a procedure that first the teams on the EVRICup rankinglist are invited. This goes on the order of the number of received EVRICup points. During one of the delegatesmeetings in the past also is decided that the expansion must come from countries that have not yet been represented. It concerns the countries France, Suisse and Austria. For this reason, a Swiss veteran team is the first on the waitinglist (see item Vwaard 2012).
The International EVRICup Committee (I.E.C.) wish you a ...

Some of us have to stay with their families, others have not enough holidays from their work and two other players are on holidays with their families. It is sad, but there is no way around it. Because Dirk and I have already booked the flights to Girona, maybe there are other teams in the competition who would like to include two german players J If you are interested just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org The good thing is! We will definitely come to Castiglione in 2010 and we will have our own EVRICUP tournament in

We are getting older also and this initiative provides a platform to play EVRCUP even when we will be 60..........".
By the way: the Dreamteam 50+ team has uploaded their foto to the teampage
