After Rolf Dobler (Switzerland) and Torben Winther (Denmark), the German European champion Heiko Grimm took over team management in 2013. With their first qualification for the European Cup, they entered the quarter finals in 2011. In 2014, the team even managed to get into the meanwhile reintroduced playoffs between the best four teams in the league. With the youngest team in the final round and the highest proportion of Swiss players, HC Kriens Luzern successfully set a development in motion for handball in central Switzerland. In parallel with the successes of the first team, the junior team of SG Pilatus Handball have achieved national junior titles again and again at various levels of performance.
