The Hellenic Ball Hockey Association is looking forward to the next World Ball Hockey Championships that will take place in Switzerland June 2024. The elite ball hockey players of the world will showcase their skills from June 21-29 2024 in Visp & Raron Switzerland. Team Greece recently finished 4th at the last World Championships which took place in Laval Canada 2022, having defeated the 4-time consecutive champions Slovakia along the way. We continue to take the next steps towards the Gold Medal game, for a chance to be crowned World Champions.

Like any organization that wants to succeed and move forward, adapting and making changes is necessary. We have spent time re-evaluating every level of our program and making the required adjustments. A major importance for team success is coaching. We have selected the coaches that we believe can help mold and prepare our team for 2024. We are very happy and excited to announce that Mr. Alex Bovoletis will be the new Head Coach of Team Greece. Alex brings a wealth of experience behind the bench and his resume speaks for itself. Alex played for Team Greece in 2005, 2009, and also the masters in 2012 and 2014. He won the B pool Gold Medal in 2009 with Greece in Czech Republic. He then became Head Coach with Team Portugal in 2011, 2017 and Assistant Coach in 2015. He was also an Assistant Coach with Greece in 2013. In 2016, he won the Gold Medal as Head Coach with Wolfpak Canada at the Masters tournament in Banff, Alberta. Most recently he has been Assistant Coach with Canada in 2019 (Bronze Medal) and 2022 in Laval, Quebec, where he helped Canada win Gold and end the drought since 2007.

Needless to say, Alex brings years of experience with him. We believe our players will greatly benefit from his knowledge and his input will help them elevate their game to the next level. We have also selected Mr. Anastasios (Tasso) Bozinakis and Mr. Dimitrios (Jim) Nistas as his Assistants. Tasso played for the Team Greece in 2009 helping them win Gold in the B pool. When the team was moved up to the A pool the following tournament he was there to play again in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2022 Men’s Championships as well as 2018 and 2022 Masters Tournaments. Jimmy played for Team Canada in 2005 and again in 2007 where he helped them win gold. He then came over and captained Team Greece as they moved up to the A division in 2011 and 2013.

He was also Assistant Coach for Team Greece in 2022. Both Tasso and Jimmy are very skilled players and have led many of their local teams to championships. They are excited and looking forward to this new challenge behind the bench. The coaches are extremely passionate about the game, and we look forward to assisting them and providing them with all the tools and support necessary to help us bring the Gold medal home to Greece. Congratulations gentlemen!
