SIH to discuss exclusion from Junior Showcase event

Scottish Ice Hockey has noted the press release issued by the English Ice Hockey Association (EIHA) on Wednesday, 12th January 2022.

The interim committee is naturally disappointed that the EIHA wishes to exclude Scottish teams from the Junior Showcase Weekend.

SIH has a long history of representation at an event that plays an important part in the development of junior players and the Great Britain programme.

The Junior Showcase Weekend was amongst a lengthy list of items on the agenda when the interim committee was confirmed on December 16th 2021.

Confirmation regarding the event was requested at this time and it was hoped an agreement that benefited all parties could have been reached.

The issue and our options will be discussed by the interim committee and other appropriate parties to ensure we have a fit for purpose National Development Program.

SIH will issue further communication on this matter in due course.
