National coaching courses will start in August and continue throughout the remainder of this year.

The courses will be run by NZHF head of coaching and IHF A-licence coach Dr Eoin Murray. Thanks to New Zealand Olympic Committee National Activities Program funding the course will be FREE for anyone registered to attend. We look forward to a great turn out for these.

The first course will be a two day coaching course aimed at club and school coaches of beginner-intermediate players in Christchurch on the 24/25th of August (9am-3pm both days with South Island Shield matches taking place on Saturday directly after the course). The course will be a mix of classroom and hall based sessions and will form the basis of a new NZHF coaching structure leading to internationally recognised coaching qualifications. Similar courses will be run in Wellington and Auckland before the end of the year.

Other shorter 4 hour courses aimed at coaches of beginners (such as high school teams or PE in schools) with little prior knowledge of handball will take place around the country. If you are interested in a similar course in your area please contact
