Another key ISBHF BOD meeting was held on Sunday February 17. Many key issues were discussed and here is a quick synopsis for our ISBHF family.
We heard from the nation of Luxembourg who has a youth and adult ball hockey program running in this key new European nation. This organization has a board and infrastructure to add to our growing strength in this area of Europe which bodes well for all nations.
