National Squads

We are about to start building our age group pathway in preparation for the National Performance Centre opening in August 2016 at Heriot Watt. The pathway will also feed in to the British Handball pathway which is being developed in preparation for the new EHF age category competitions for M18 (born 1998/1999) in 2016 and W17(born 2000/2001) in 2017.

There are now 6 national squads operating.

Girls Born 2002/2003
Girls Born 2000/2001
Boys Born 2002/2003
Boys Born 2000/2001
Boys Born 1998/1999
Boys Born 1996/1997

For eligibility for the SHA pathway squads a player must be resident in Scotland but there is no requirement to hold a British passport to be part of the squad. If a player is based outside Scotland then one of their parents must have been born in Scotland to be part of the SHA pathway squads.

Eligibility to play for Great Britain follows the IHF rules. For GB, players must have a British passport received through birth rights or citizenship.
