The coaches had to make many tough decisions as they considered both potential as well as performance. The coaches were thoroughly impressed by the standard of play on show and the attitudes of the youngsters performing at the trials and national competitions.

Players who have been selected will receive an email from the Lisa Swain – Operations Manager very shortly asking them to confirm the acceptance of their place.

Being selected is just one part of the process and remaining part of the squad is dependent on performance and attitude. Coaches also reserve the right to invite others players to train with these squads at anytime

Any player that has not been selected is very welcome to contact the England Coaching Staff via youthtrials@englandkorfball.co.uk and the relevant coach will provide a personal response and feedback.

England Korfball would like to thank all of those who attended the trials and expressed a desire to be part of these squads.
