The International Handball Federation (IHF) in collaboration with the Ghana Handball Association (GHA) has conducted a three-day training programme for physical trainers of the sport from selected High schools in Ghana.
The event dubbed “High School handball” is meant to teach the various physical instructors – participants the new rules in the sport and the new techniques being employed by countries who are excelling at the game of handball.
Maria Estriga an expert in the game and a member of the Handball Association of Portugal was the leading facilitator after her appointment by the IHF to lead the crusade to revive the sport in Ghana.
