Since the very first national game of team Sweden back in 2007, Atte van Haastrecht has been at the helm, guiding mostly inexperienced players through the first international tournament. Providing steadfast guidance to the burgeoning korfball nation, Atte van Haastrecht has promoted korfball tirelessly in Sweden and during his tenure Sweden has seen a steady rise in quality over the last few years, with a mix of newer players and seasoned veterans. However, the team narrowly missed out on qualifying for the European Championships both in 2009 and 2013, and after the Eurobowl West tournament held in Slovakia in June, Atte van Haastrecht and assistant coach Hans de Goijer , have chosen to step down and hand over the reins to next generation. However, their contribution to the development of korfball in Sweden will be invaluable for many years to come.
