Schools and Kids

handball for All Ages

Our Youth Development Officers, Justin and Ben, are committed to developing handball at a youth level focused on schools. They also help empower schools to teach handball themselves. We can help with a wide variety of services including direct coaching of students, developing training programmes with schools and mentoring coaches on how to teach handball.

Past Successes

Our very own Cashmere High School team placed second at the 2018 New Zealand Secondary Schools Handball Championships. They narrowly lost the final match to St Patricks College Wellington 20-24. Pivot Wayo Whyte was top goal scorer for the tournament and Goalkeeper Alex Browne was the best goalkeeper. The team also won fairest team to boot.

The team is a shining example of Canterbury Handball’s core values.
