The 1997 IIHF European U18 Championship was the thirtieth playing of the IIHF European Junior Championships.

Group AEdit

Played April 12th to the 20th, in Znojmo and Trebic Czech Republic. Switzerland shocked everyone by opening the tournament with wins over the Czechs and the Russians. Although they tired by the end of the tournament, their win over Slovakia assured them of their first (and only) medal in the European Juniors.
