National Academy

What is the National Academy?

We are building our age group pathway and Academy at Oriam Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre at Heriot Watt University. The pathway will feed in to the British Handball pathway which is in place for the European Handball Federation age category competitions for Boys U18 and U20 and Girls U17 and U19.

Who can play?

Girls Academy is open to those in S1 to S6.                                
Boys Academy is open to those S2 to S6        
The academy is open to any players resident in Scotland regardless of their nationality.                              

Why take part?

The main objectives of the Academy are to help players develop their handball skills and have memorable experiences on trips abroad to Handball tournaments. The teams play as Scotland but not in official EHF or IHF competitions.

How to Sign Up?

Players should discuss their involvement with their handball club.  If they are only playing handball at school they should ask their PE department to email to register their interest.
