International korfballers, led by KNKV master coach Jan Sjouke van den Bos, are in the Dominican Republic to help promote the sport in Central America’s newest korfball country.
From 22 to 28 February 2016 the Dominican Korfball Association (ASOKODINA) is hosting the visit of the group.
U23 Dutch internationals Anouk Haars (Ovvo/De Kroon), Timo de Wit (Nic/Alfa-College) and Anita de Ridder (KV TOP Arnemuiden) are joined on the tour by Catalan international Jose Alvarez (Ovvo/De Kroon).
Clinics in nine schools are the focus of the seven-day programme of activities, while in the afternoons and evenings the champion coach and international players will join the Dominican Republic’s national U19 and U23 team training sessions. These teams are currently preparing for upcoming international tournaments – U19 Korfball World Cup (U19 KWC) in Leeuwarden , The Netherlands in March 2016 and the IKF U23 World Korfball Championship (IKF U23 WKC) in Olomouc, Czech Republic – with intensive training during the week.
