Olympic Handball for Primary Schools

Olympic Handball is a popular sport for primary school pupils. Meath LSP & Irish  Olympic Handball Association (IOHA) are working together to introduce an Olympic Handball School Programme for primary schools in Meath in 2020. Together we are working  to increase participation rates in the sport of Olympic Handball and increase opportunities for children to experience new activities.

This programme is available to all primary schools in Meath who would like to incorporate Olympic Handball as part of their school sports curriculum.

Feedback from Schools and Pupils who participated in 2019

  • This is a fantastic opportunity for our school, and we are very grateful for the Meath LSP for organising the Olympic Handball training, the coach was fantastic and I got loads from it, thank you.

  • We have seen children who don’t normally get involved in team games embrace Olympic Handball, they absolutely love it.

  • The Blitz was the best day ever.
