    Turkish Hockey

    This was posted on our old board by Lukasz. The link is a couple of years old, but it is a decent reference....

    Getting to know ice hockey in Turkey
    - "We have ensured the necessary conditions for hosting the 2003 World Under-20 Championship (Div. III), which will take place in Izmit from Jan. 21 to 26, in the best possible way. For the first time we are taking part in world championships with senior, under-20 and under-18 teams. The seniors will compete in New Zealand from April 4 to 6, the under-20s in Izmit and the under-18s in Bosnia in February"
    - "Since ice hockey officially arrived in Turkey in 1991, we have reached a point where there is a Super League with 10 teams, 60 referees both on and off the ice and around 500 amateur hockey players, 40 of them women. We have a national team which is progressively growing stronger and club sides which have achieved victories in the Intercontinental Cup. There are seven ice rinks in Turkey, two of them of Olympic standards."
    - "We are obliged to become a more advanced Federation making investments in the future of ice hockey with new initiatives. In this context, we have introduced to Turkey the special LTP program. The Learn to Play Program (LTP) is an educational initiative introduced within the Sport Development Program of the IIHF"

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) named Turkey to host the 2003 World Under-20 Championship (Div. III), and this tournament will be held in the Marmara city of Izmit.

    Hence, 2003 will be the year of ice hockey in Turkey, TBSF President Prof. A. Kadir Dokmeci told the Turkish Probe. With the completion of the Istanbul Olympic Ice Rink, Turkey "will have obtained another rink for our teams and a facility which will attract youngsters interested in the game, he added." Below is a full text of the interview with Dokmeci:

    Turkish Probe - The Turkish Ice Sports Federation is 10 years old. What would you like to say about this?

    DOKMECI - Since ice hockey officially arrived in Turkey in 1991, we have reached a point where there is a Super League with 10 teams, 60 referees both on and off the ice and around 500 amateur hockey players, 40 of them women. We have a national team which is progressively growing stronger and club sides which have achieved victories in the Intercontinental Cup. There are seven ice rinks in Turkey, two of them of Olympic standards. In 2003, Istanbul will add another to these. I regard the past 10 years as a period when determined targets have been reached.

    Turkish Probe - What developments will there be as against past strategies?

    DOKMECI - We have a definite calendar for achieving the aim of popularizing ice hockey nationwide and making it news. First, 2003 will be the year of ice hockey in Turkey. With the completion of the Istanbul Olympic Ice Rink, we will have obtained another rink for our teams and a facility which will attract youngsters interested in the game. The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) has awarded the 2003 World Under-20 Championship (Div. III) to us. We have ensured the necessary conditions for hosting this championship, which will take place in Izmit from Jan. 21 to 26, in the best possible way. For the first time we are taking part in world championships with senior, under-20 and under-18 teams. The seniors will compete in New Zealand from April 4 to 6, the under-20s in Izmit and the under-18s in Bosnia in February.

    We are obliged to become a more advanced Federation making investments in the future of ice hockey with new initiatives. In this context, we have introduced to Turkey the special LTP program. The Learn to Play Program (LTP) is an educational initiative introduced within the Sport Development Program of the IIHF. The IIHF, in partnership with the member national federations, is looking to use this Program to promote the global development of ice hockey, introducing our sport at the youngest age levels.

    The program is a cooperative effort, drawing on ice hockey experience and expertise from around the world. It promotes a youth-oriented educational approach to teaching the skills of ice hockey to the youngest children. The Learn To Play Program is aimed at teaching boys and girls between the ages of six and nine basic skills of ice hockey. The program promotes the equal involvement of the participants to create a fun environment for the children and their parents. Because of this some coaching seminars are being organized by the Federation.

    Turkish Probe - What differences are there between ice hockey in our country and in the West?

    DOKMECI - From our point of view, the West is at a level which makes us jealous. However, with our 10-year past and our progressively strengthening infrastructure, we are catching up with the West which has federations a hundred years old. In the 1998 World Championship, our senior national team, which had participated in championships eight times, achieved a success it had not achieved in previous years. It set a first by finishing sixth in a group of nine teams. Last year, our Ankara teams Police Academy and Ankara Municipality succeeded in finishing second in their Intercontinental Cup opening round groups. There is still a great difference between us and the West and we need to make a big effort and work very hard to reduce it.

    Turkish Probe - What is your vision for ice hockey?

    DOKMECI - Although it looks difficult, to play in the World Championship Group A and participate in the Olympics and to have youngsters skating on 10 Olympic rinks and on natural rinks in Eastern Anatolia where there is no shortage of ice. These are our visions. Turning them into reality will make all our efforts worthwhile and make us forget our own fatigue.

    Ice Hockey

    Academy champion

    Police Academy and College won the Turkish Ice Hockey League championship, beating Izmit Municipality 8-2 in the final. The third place playoff in the Final Four at Ankara's Belpa rink was a walkover. Under competition regulations, Ankara Municipality was awarded a 5-0 victory when its opponent Istanbul Skating Club failed to appear for the match.

    Not sure if he still is, but the old British referee-in-chief and GB team manager, Nico Toemen (he's Dutch), went to the Turkish Federation when he was forced to quit the UK. The old BIHA went bankrupt with several members being accused of being less than honest with their expense claims, some to the tune of £25k. Unfortunately, those involved were given the option of repayment to avoid charges, and all did so, so we can't be completely sure who was guilty. However, there are few in the UK who doubt that Nico was one of them...

    Personally, the Turks can have him. In his capacity as referee-in-chief, he once said in an interview that he hated Fife's fans so much that as long as he was in charge, they would never win another championship title. The very first season he was out of the country (1998-99), Fife won their first championship. Whether that was coincidence or not, I can't believe that a man in his position could make that statement in public and keep his job.

    There is a site of national federation http://www.tisf.org but very poor in terms of information.

    Another site http://www.buzhokeyi.8m.com/ is no updated from 2001......

    I didn't even know of the last one! I've looked at the federation page a while back (during under 18). Thanks for the link, but what a shame there are no updates.

    I wonder if they will be updating (the federation) during the tournamant?

    Best Defender

    Cengo,

    for which team do you played, when you was best defender (1999-2000 and 2000-01)??

    Do you know maybe some other "Best ....." (Defender, Forwarder, Goalkeeper....) from other season's? I collect also such stats, but - you know - it's hard to find....

    Thanks in advance

    :smart: :smart: :smart:

    Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet today had a short interview with Daniel Molin, who along with two friends will move from Ånge (plays in Div 1, Swedish third tier) to play for Anka Hockey Club in Ankara.

    There was 14 regular season matches and 2 single game elimination playoffs last season. They average 3 to 4 games per month i think, not counting any friendly games or tournaments I dont know about. here is a link to last season
