GB U20 ramp up preparations for Dumfries World Championship tournament

Great Britain U20 held their latest camp in Sheffield as preparations continue for the World Championship tournament being held in Dumfries later this year.

The GB youngsters had a couple of two-hour ice sessions and video analysis at iceSheffield as the squad were put through their paces.

Head Coach Slava Koulikov said: “The camp went really well. Having the two on-ice sessions gave us enough time to do a lot of team technical aspects.

“We were able to go over it in depth and and having a video session off the ice was very useful. The guys did well on and off the ice and coaches were pleased with how camp went.

“Now it’s time to review, move forward and start planning for November camp.”

Ice Hockey UK will be hosting this season’s U20 World Championship (Division 2A) in Dumfries from 10th to 16th December.

GB will face Estonia, Japan, Netherlands and Romania, along with Korea who were promoted from Division 2B this year.
