ISBHF HISTORY International Street and Ball Hockey Federation Founded in 1993, the International Street & Ball Hockey Federation has provided international competitions since 1995, when the first European Championship was held in Bratislava, Slovakia, with Czechia defeating Slovakia. Canada would claim the first World Championship in 1996, defeating Czechia in Bratislava, in 1996, with seven nations participating, which also featured Austria, Germany, Russia, Slovakia (bronze medalists), and Switzerland. The next World Championship was held in 1998, in Litomerice, Czechia, where the home nation captured gold with a win over Slovakia. The 1999 event was hosted in Zvolen, Slovakia, and once again the home nation was victorious, this time defeating Canada in a shootout, after overtime. From this point forward, the senior World Championship has become a bi-annual event, held on odd numbered years, usually in the first or second week of June. Visit our website (www.isbhf.com) for more information and the results of each championship since The inaugural World Junior Championship for players Under 20 was held in Kralupy, Czechia, in 2000, with Canada defeating the home nation, and Slovakia claiming bronze. This event is also bi-annual, but is held on even numbered years, usually during the last week of June. Over the years many outstanding athletes have left their mark on the history of the sport, with some going on to have professional ice hockey careers in the National Hockey League, and/or various European Hockey Leagues, but the vast majority are lifelong amateur players. A large percentage of street hockey players have never played the ice version, due to economic, social, or geographical barriers, but their skills are no less as developed for street hockey purposes, as evidenced by the fact that some of its greatest players never played ice hockey in their youth. *Note: Excerpts from website
