Handball at School – Fun, passion and health
During the last years, handball has become a modern and attractive high-speed game, which has been fascinating more and more spectators and fans. For me it is therefore an important task for the future to benefit from the popularity of our sport in order to get especially children and adolescents at school interested in handball.
As one of the first international sports organizations, the International Handball Federation has launched a worldwide training and education programme for teachers at schools.
According to the motto “Fun, passion and health”, competent IHF school experts, in a first phase, conduct courses for teachers of 5 to 11-year old children on all continents. These courses should contribute to make handball an integral part of the curriculum in physical education also in early age, increase the commitment for our sport and pave the way for an involvement in handball also in adult age.
