Last week of the 1st IHF Children’s Handball Symposium begins tomorrow

The final week of the 1st IHF Children’s Handball Symposium kicks off tomorrow with Craig Rot, IHF Handball at School Working Group Member and IHF Commission of Coaching and Methods Lecturer.

Rot is the coach of the United States of America women's youth and junior national teams and president of Team Handball Academy, a Chicago-based organisation. 

Team Handball Academy provides training for players between the ages 7 to 21, from novice to elite, as well as curriculum and developmental opportunities nationwide for teachers, coaches, referees and administrators through its Play Team Handball outreach programme. 

‘Teaching in the real world’

“In this lecture, we will discuss the reality of teaching handball in the real world, examining the most common pitfalls experienced when starting a programme, including improvised materials, modified teaching spaces, and a lack of knowledge of the sport. 

We will briefly examine common issues that teachers and coaches face during the pandemic and provide developmentally appropriate solutions to these problems. Viewing through the previous lectures’ lens, we will see how the game-based approach is the perfect philosophy for teaching and coaching children's handball in the real world.”
