Finland names its first training squad of 2022

Team Finland HC Mika Eloranta has named first training squad of 2022. Finland is a host for 2022 IFAF Women´s World Championship played in Vantaa next summer.

90 of the best female players in Finland will come together at Pajulahti Olympic training center in Nastola on Saturday 7. May. Mika Eloranta and his coaching staff have looked at numerous things in putting training squad together including performances in previous international games.

HC Eloranta says:

-For the last month, we have gone through videos and data from previous years about Finnish female players with our coaching staff. Based on this, we decided to invite 90 women to the national team qualifiers. In a few positions, we had to make really difficult decisions already at this point, so I’m looking forward to the camp when the women get to show off their skills and compete against each other for a place in the final follow-up camp. After the first camp, we will also be watching women’s games before making the final selections.

The final selections will be made at the camp the week before championships July 25.-28.2022.
