A message from Men’s Team USA General Manager George Tarantino:

“As 2017 steadily approaches, the Men’s team staff has been scouting tournaments throughout the USA as the first step towards building the team that will travel to the Czech Republic next June for the ISBHF World Ball Hockey Championships. We do our best to have a presence wherever we feel there will be an abundance of teams that play at the highest level.

So far myself and various coaching staff members have attended the following tournaments:

  • Sunshine Shootout (Tampa, FL)
  • World Outdoor Ball Hockey Championships (Barrie, Ont)
  • Clash of the Titans (St, Catherines, Ont)
  • Sin City Shootout (Las Vegas, NV)
  • Legends Ball Hockey Classic (Chicago, IL)
  • New England Ball Hockey Classic (Dracut, MA)
  • Holiday Bash (Feasterville, PA)
  • Super Bowl Bye Week Invitational (Harrisburg, PA)
  • The Sports Zone Holiday Jamboree (Long Island, NY)
  • North American Ball Hockey Championships A/B/C divisions (Feasterville, PA)

Any individual player who has not attended these events but would like to be considered for the team, or any person who believes they know a player that the Men’s Team USA Staff should be aware of, can contact myself, GM George Tarantino via email at Gtarantino@ashihocky.org or my Assistant GM Michael Zambon at mzambon@ashihockey.org. We want to hear from you; it is our responsibility to consider all options.

We will have more information soon about the process and timetables for our 2017 team.

Best wishes to all who love the game.”

The 2017 ISBHF World Ball Hockey Championships are taking place in Pardubice, Czech Republic in June 2017.
