Dave Easter, President/CEO of CIHA
believes this to be the most important
International Inline Event (Festival)
for the growth of the sport for inline
hockey. Easter says,” an event such as
the World Inline Hockey Festival will
continue to foster the growth and
development of the youth players of the
world as well as provide excellent
training for future High Performance
coaches and officials for all
participating countries. The cultural
exchange and life-long friendships
amongst players, coaches, officials and
parents cannot be overlooked as we work
toward growing the sport globally. This
event provides the Canadian High
Performance coaches and staff
opportunity to evaluate players for
future international championships for
our National Teams. We are not just
seeking the best skilled players for
the future, but for young people that
