The Malta Handball Association in collaboration with SportMalta has launched its Handball Academy. The Academy, which is run by the appointed MHA National team coaches, opened its doors on Wednesday 13th January 2016. One and half hour weekly sessions are being held on Wednesdays at the University Sports Hall at 17:00.
The academy is open for U/13 and U/15 Boys and Girls and the programme is free of charge.
The academy focuses on technical, tactical, physical and cognitive development. The idea behind this initiative is three-fold; Firstly, it should be fruitful to the clubs by helping in the development of their own athletes. Secondly, it benefits the youth national teams by investing in potential national team players and thirdly, the Academy shall also serve as a means of recruitment of new players. In this respect the academy provides for different levels of attainment.
It is the Association’s firm idea that the academy becomes a strong part of the handball community and that it grows every year.
