The Liberia National Handball Association (LNHA) has announced the extension of its forthcoming seminar in Monrovia, Tubmaburg and Harbel, according to a press release.
Signed by its president Mason Saweler, the LNHA said it has been advised by the International Handball Federation (IHF) to reschedule the training, until materials for the course are in Monrovia, to a later date.
“The training is important and having materials with us will be the best thing we need so we agreed with the IHF to wait until we receive the materials early next month,” Mr. Saweler said.
He said the international expert selected by the IHF will arrive in Liberia as soon as he is informed that the materials have arrived.
In addition, a local expert has been selected to work along with the international expert.
The seminar is for physical education instructors from the various elementary, junior, high school and colleges and universities throughout the country. The seminars will last for three days each.
Saweler said registration is ongoing for two participants from each of the schools. The three session events are expected to bring more than 300 participants to learn the fundamentals of handball as the LNHA is determined to make the game a national sport.
