The Force are pleased to announce an affiliation agreement with Mannheim Hockey Club, known as the Mad Dogs, to facilitate the development and promotion of players between our two clubs.
Mannheim will look to provide players for our junior club, while their teams will have access to our older players ready for an opportunity to play in Germany and advance to the professional level with any one of several clubs in the high quality German leagues, particularly Adler Mannheim, who play out of the same arena and look to the Mad Dogs for advancing players.
The clubs will develop a channel of communication to evaluate and monitor our players and move them to the appropriate level in each country.
The clubs will also look at opportunities to conduct clinics and tryout camps in each others home arenas, and even consider playing exhibition tours in both nations.
Stay tuned for developments as this relationship grows and we start to see results in grooming players for the next level.
