From May 4 to 28, 2021, the 1st IHF Children’s Handball Symposium will take place. This symposium, which will be held exclusively online, aims to promote handball activities and train educators to mentor these young beginners.
Eight interactive Zoom Webinars will be held every Tuesday and Friday in May, from 14:00 to 15:00 CEST (GMT+1).
The Zoom Webinars are streamed live on the IHF Facebook page. Translation of the webinars into Arabic, French and Spanish will be available on Zoom only, and participants will be able to ask questions to the speakers via Zoom’s chat and Q&A features.
Participation in the webinars is free and open to all interested parties without registration: coaches, referees, delegates, physical education teachers, parents and children.
In addition, participants who log in to Zoom with their email address and full name and attend all eight webinars will receive a certificate of attendance.
