National Academy

What is the National Academy?

We are building our age group pathway and Academy at Oriam Scotland’s National Performance Centre at Heriot Watt. The pathway will feed in to the British Handball pathway which is in place for the EHF age category competitions for Boy's U18 and U20 and Girl's 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                                      

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.
The academy is open to any players resident in Scotland regardless of their nationality.  Players should discuss their involvement with their club.  If they are only playing Handball at school they should speak to their PE teacher and get them to email to register their interest.
