Olympic Handball is a popular sport for primary school pupils. Meath LSP & Irish Olympic Handball Association (IOHA) are working together to introduce a new Meath Handball Schools League for primary schools in Meath. 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.
Primary schools who register for the programme will receive:
More than 1240 children in Meath have taken part in School Olympic Handball programmes since 2019 and over 48 teachers have received Olympic Handball training.
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.
