About the 2023 IHF Education Weeks
The two September courses follow the previously held Beach Handball Education Week and Coaches and Referees Education Week, which took place in May and June. Following the September programmes will be two more to conclude the 2023 IHF Education Weeks: Management Education Courses (2 to 5 October) and Wheelchair Handball Education Courses (6 to 8 October).
The 2023 IHF Education Weeks come after eight extensive courses held in 2020 and 2021, which followed the launching of the IHF Virtual Academy at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the IHF Virtual Academy is to aid the development of handball around the world through the provision of free, live-streamed courses designed for every level, from the top through to grassroots.
