Welcome to the first Falkland Islands Ball Hockey team. For news and information about the Falkland Islands Hawks check out this page.
There is a lot of changes expected in the ball hockey league with leagues now following the ISBHF player age rulings which in turn will assist the development of Team Falklands. It will enable players to move through the various stages of Team Falklands as we look to create an Under 14, 16 and Adult team to compete in future ISBHF World Championships as well as the exciting new South American AA Tournament that we are currently working on introducing with the assistance with the ISBHF Marketing team.
The Pilzen Cup is another tournament that we would like to compete in and continue to liaise with Coaches Gary Slavin and Dave Weloy in the prospects of a Falkland Islands team being represented in a future event. Coach Weloy has offered his assistance to the Falklands team and has happily provided his skills as coach when we attend overseas games.
The Falklands/Stanley Hawks recently competed against a local military team based at Mount Pleasant Complex (MPC) and were successful in winning this game 8-2. We will be working to undertake further games at MPC as it enables the players to play on a much larger floor area.
