I am looking to introduce handball into the KS4 curriculum,?

I am looking to introduce handball into the KS4 curriculum, has anyone got any advice as to where to start?

(From Wikipedia : Key Stage 4 is the legal term for the two years of school education which incorporate GCSEs, and other exams, in maintained schools in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland—normally known as Year 10 and Year 11 in England and Wales, and Year 11 and Year 12 in Northern Ireland, when pupils are aged between 14 and 16.)

Start playing small handball-like games. You can find them in the database in the 8-9 years category eg : Handball, 219 supporting team mates/ blocking attackers.

Once you see your students like the games, you can work on details from the games like passing, shooting, defending : drills from the 10-11-12 year olds.(eg 315 center shot when running) This is to train the techniques a bit more seriously than doing it in games. Choose the most important techniques!

Then go over to 16> and senior category and pick your defending and attacking strategies.

When you are in a large gymnasium or sportshall devide it up into three parts. In each part you can train different things and after 10 min you can have them change parts. One part eg shooting with a certain technique, in part two : defending 1:1, and in the third part a dribbling drill.

Try to make a plan ahead, for several weeks for about 45 min or an hour a week.

Start simple but with spectacular, very active drills and games to gain enthusiasm and success experience to win them for your handball sport.

Hope this will help to get extra handballplayers!!
