NEWS REPORT: 20 participants from 11 nations attended the first Goalcha Conference organised by the European Handball Federation
First Goalcha conference hailed a huge success
The first Goalcha Conference, organised by the European Handball Federation together with Goalcha GmbH in the Austrian city of Tulln from 14 to 16 July, has been a huge success with 20 participants from 11 nations in attendance.
Goalcha has been developed with the objective to bring handball back to the schools and into the daily life of children and teenagers.
With Goalcha everything centers on the positive experience – it's not about competition or who scored more goals.
It is a match without referee and coach – the players formulate the basic rules themselves and assume responsibility that these are observed during the match. There is no right or wrong.
The goal of the conference has been to introduce the Goalcha philosophy to the participants in order to enable them to spread the experience among children and and young players in their environment.
Several experts shared their knowledge and suggestions on how to approach players and help them achieve self-assurance and a feeling of skillfulness when it comes to the handling of balls.
Every participant received two Goalcha balls, one Quick Play goal and the Goalcha manual as a ‘starter kit’ to spread the word of Goalcha upon their return.
