After being approached by teachers in Lethbridge who expressed their desire to start a team handball club, and thanks to a grant from the 2020 Lethbridge Alberta Summer Games Legacy Fund, we are thrilled to announce that Alberta Team Handball is coming to Lethbridge!
Join us on August 26th for a FREE day of learning and fun with Alberta Team Handball! Are you a teacher or coach who wants to dive deeper into the world of handball? Look no further! We are thrilled to offer you a comprehensive 1-day workshop that will take your knowledge and skills to the next level.
This action-packed workshop consists of four dynamic sessions, each building upon the previous one. Let's take a closer look at what's in store for you:
Starting at 8:00 AM, we kick off with our Mini Handball coaching course. In this session, you'll discover the fundamentals of coaching mini handball, a modified version of the game suitable for younger players. Learn the strategies and techniques that will engage and inspire your budding handball stars.

Finally, from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, we conclude the day with an exciting "Give it a Try" session and scrimmage that is open to all school-age children and youth.
