A three-day Handball Clinic organized by the Freetown City Council (FCC) in collaboration with the Handball Association, starts today at the National Stadium, Brookfield in Freetown.
Speaking to Awoko Sports about the Clinic, Sports Officer of the Freetown City Council, Joseph O’reilly Campbell, said the Sports Committee of the Freetown City Council organized the Clinic at the request of the Handball Association in 2010 to train Coaches so that they can prepare athletes for Inter-Constituency competitions.
24 participants from the 12 different Constituencies are expected to take part in the Clinic.
O’reilly Campbell also revealed that the Clinic would be interesting, as most of the participants are attending such a clinic for the first time, and that on their return, they will teach members of their various Constituencies how to play Handball.
He also stated that during the three-day Clinic, there will be one Tutor, one Referee and one Coach who will lecture throughout the three days.
Topics to be dealt with include basic skills of playing handball, how to attack and defend, rules of the game and also measurement of the Handball Court.
O’reilly Campbell also said at the end of the Clinic, participants should be able to teach other people about the game and its basic rules.
They will also receive Handball Rules Book that will keep them abreast with the Rules and Regulations of the game and will also receive certificates to show that they attended the Clinic.
