    Hello all,

    I am looking to play next season in France.
    But could you guys give me some more information about the highest league.
    What teams are best, what teams play with foreign players and are open for foreign players to join.

    Thnx,

    Hi Diederick,
    the top level in France is Elite (10 teams), 2nd level is Nationale 1 (10 teams).
    Most of teams from Elite & Nationale 1 are happy to welcome strong foreign players.
    Where are you from, where do you want to live in France?
    Take a look at the other topic about french hockey...
    Cheers,
    Jerome

    If you go to a large city like Paris you'll find plenty of schools...
    Some universities have special courses for foreign students.
    You have to searche on their websites.
    I know a private school that is almost everywhere :

    I hope you'll have fun here...

    Hi , my names Sophie. I am 19 years old and am playing at a high level of hockey in Ireland. I also represented my country inter-provincially. I am looking to find a job in France for the summer and would love if I could play some hockey over there also. Do the French play hockey during the months of June and July and if so , what clubs?? Thanks
