CBSbutler are proud to sponsor the GB Junior Mens' In-Line Roller Hockey Team
CBSbutler are very proud to announce that we are the official sponsors of the Great Britain Junior Mens' In-Line Roller Hockey team as they compete at the FIRS World Championships this month.
The tournament will be held in Italy from 11th-25th June, and will run concurrently with the Womens' tournament. The Mens' and Junior Womens' Championship will run from the 19th-25th June.
The Junior Mens' team will fly out to Italy on the 10th June, and have been training hard to prepare for the upcoming challenge. Grouped with the USA, Spain and India, they expect very tough competition but are hopeful regarding their chances. Also participating are a total of 18 competing nations, including Canada, Namibia, Sweden and Italy, among others.
In-Line Roller Hockey is something of a minority sport, and so funding is often difficult to find, which is why we are so happy to be able to support the hard-working team-members of the Junior Mens' team in their attempt to win the World Championships.
One of the young men on the team is the son of one of our long-term contractors, and we are extremely happy to be able to support our candidates in more ways than our usual remit of helping to find a new job.
One player is autistic, and his family explain that, while he has had to work extremely hard to excel as he has, his playing the sport has had a hugely positive impact on their home life as well as his school work and studies. As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle for all players, hockey and other team sports can help people with autistic-spectrum disorders develop life skills and stronger social capabilities.
The tournament will be live streamed via a pay-to-view service, and the boys' progress can be tracked via this website
We wish you the best of luck, Team GB - bring home the gold!
