Interest is high from France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Finland, South Africa, New Zealand, Costa Rica and Hong Kong, and in the next few weeks many of these teams will confirm their attendance.

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 represent CIHA and Canada as good sportsmen and ambassadors. This event will without a doubt be the Ultimate Player Experience”.
