January saw a busy month for the IHF Handball@School project in El Salvador, with courses held in three cities across the country. A total of 140 professionals working in the field of physical education, sports and recreation took part in the courses, run by IHF lecturer Dr Pablo Juan Greco, from January 17 to 26.


“In the three cities, the participants were very motivated, with active participation, many moments of questions and answers – clearly a good start for the dissemination of handball,” said Dr Greco in his report, adding that handball will be integrated into the teaching curriculum, therefore, the presence of such motivated teachers was a particular bonus.


“The participating teachers showed punctuality, interest and a lot of motivation both in the theoretical classrooms and in the practical part.”


The opening course, in Santa Tecla from January 17 to 19, saw the greatest attendance, with 70 participants. 34 took part in the course in Ilobasco (January 21 to 23) and 36 attended the course in Chalatenango (January 24 to 26). All three saw a variety of professions represented, including teachers, athletes, recent graduates and sports administration officials. The course content included both theoretical lectures and practical lessons, as well as an assessment at the conclusion of each.


Dr Greco also noted the excellent work and cooperation with the El Salvador Handball Federation.
