1. ITC Version 2015

The IISHF propose for 2015 a new version of the ITC

Advantage of this version is that an automatic age group check is made. This helps the teams to have directly the information if the player fit in the age group. Therefore it is important that the age group as well as the start and end Date of the Event for the tournament is filled in.

Green stands for an overaged female player
Blue is for an female Player
Orange stands for overaged male player
No color are players which fits completely in the age group
Light Orange stand for under aged players which needs a Parental approval.

It is very important that the new THF is used for all events in 2015. Attached please find the new ITC version 2015 which can also be downloaded from
