The Estonian Women’s U19 national team candidates had a training camp during the September Internationals Weekend. The goal of the WU19 team is to participate in Women’s U19 WFC Qualifications in September 2021 for the first time in Estonian floorball history.
The U19 training camp was held together with the Estonian Women’s national team.
Joel Heine was elected to be a head coach of Estonian WU19 national team this summer and this training camp was the first time he met the whole team. Heine has previously worked and continues to work as an assistant coach of the Estonian Women’s national team.
– It’s really nice to see that after a lot of good work from a lot of coaches and clubs, there are now enough players for the girls league and for starting to build the U19 national team. We’re building a bridge between the juniors and ladies. I find it really interesting, Heine comments.
The head coach of women’s national team Pavel Semenov agrees on the importance of including juniors for training camps:
– We were pleasantly surprised by several girls who will be invited to the next camps of the adult team.
The next training camp for juniors will take place in November during the internationals weekend.
