National teams from Costa Rica, Colombia and The Netherlands will compete with the host in the Copa Internacional de Korfball in the Dominican Republic from 16 to 19 June.
Jointly organised by the Dominican Republic Ministry of Sports and national korfball body Asokodina, the event will take place in the Olimpic Center in Santo Domingo. As the Dominican Republic U23 team looks ahead to the IKF U23 WKC, this tournament will form a crucial part of its preparation programme.
Leading up to the tournament, The Netherlands team will assist in the host’s training, participating in various clinics and promotional activities. Asokodina’s promotion plan within schools is progressing positively, with generous support from the sports ministry, as evidenced by excellent results achieved in recent international korfball events, including the IKF U23 PAKC 2015, where the Dominican Republic won first place U19 KWC 2016, where they finished fourth. Asokodina is well on the way to achieving its local objective of presenting korfball to the country’s young people as a fresh opportunity to participate in sport, and aspire to international competition.
