    OK - be a bit more specific?

    You looking at Hoofdklasse? Amsterdam based? The Hague? Rotterdam?

    What you looking for? €100,000 Euros each? Accomodation? Car?

    Then i'd suggest you get a letter of recommendation from a senior coach, explaining the situation, and then maybe contact the 1st team manager at Rotterdam HC.

    They wish!!! TdN doesn't make that kind of money, not even including his sponsor deals. (as far as I know)

    But like MK said, be a LOT more specific.
    What level are you looking for, which part of Holland, what positions do you play, are you willing/able to give trainings/coach youth teams, do you need employment/study opportunities, etc, etc, etc.....

    We are looking for a relatively competative league where we can learn, obviuosly not 1s yet. We dont need employment as we are only looking to play for about 4months, we are looking for a family or player of the club to take us in and need little support money wise. We dont mind where in holland so long as the towns relatively big. we are both strikers one of us is in the thundersticks squad. We arnt looking to study just to learn more about hockey and we would be more than happy in coaching a junior team if necessary.

    Do you have coaching qualifications?
    Do you have (Australian equivalent of) Criminal Records Check - or do you know if you need this before being able to coach kids in Holland?

    You might also want to check Dutch rules regarding overseas players in a team (in the UK only 1 player classed as overseas is permitted in each team).
