With Switzerland wheelchair hockey national team training camp scheduled to get underway tomorrow in Nottwil, Steve Müller and Dani Rolli are readying themselves to participate. Both players represent Rolling Thunder in Switzerland’s domestic powerchair hockey team.
The camp is part of team training for the ICEWH 4th European Championship scheduled to take place in Alcobendas, Madrid in July. Later this month, Switzerland is scheduled to take part in Six Nations tournament in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy where they are scheduled to meet Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Finland, and Denmark. With Finland, Germany and Denmark all ranked ahead of the sixth rank Swiss team, the event serves as an opportunity to tweak and put into action strategy developed at this weekend’s camp and assist in finalizing starters for Madrid.
Müller and Rolli have been actively training with their club side. In the most recent round of the NLA in Lenzburg, the Rolling Thunder won all three of their games, including their matches against Lausanne and Zurich . This was followed up by a two day intensive club training camp last weekend. The Rolling Thunder’s training and recent victories have positioned them to grab the league title in the final round scheduled to take place in May. They take a 5 point lead into the Lausanne final round.
