Junior European Championships
Starting in 2024, the EDF will also host a Junior European Championship (JEC) in our competitions schedule. This event will target players under the age of 18, to increase player development opportunities and create a natural pathway into senior competitions such as the Regional European Championship structures, as well as the European Championships.
The JECs will be open to both boys and girls. The current division structure allows for an Under 18 team, an Under 15 team, and an all-girls division as well. Players competing in an Under 15 team may not also participate in the Under 18 team, due to timetabling requirements. This structure will be reassessed following the pilot JEC, which will occur in 2024 in Castenaso, in Italy.
