Kindergarten handball is growing up
Developed in France as “BabyHand” for more than two decades, kindergarten handball is gaining more and more interest from abroad. The adapted form of handball made suitable for three- to five-year-old children is one of the topics at the EHF Grassroots Convention in Munich on 14 January 2024.
We adapt handball for children: we have balls, we have goals, but we want it to be fun, which is why sometimes some of our teachers come from outside the handball world. I tried to have proper handball coaches with me during sessions, but they were really focused on the technique, which is not what we want.
