A 10-day National Training of Trainers Workshop for 40 Physical Education Instructors is underway at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the Kumasi Metropolis.
It is being organized by the Handball Association of Ghana under the auspices of the National Sports Council in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ghana Olympic Committee.
Performing the opening ceremony on Monday, Mr. B. A. Annan, the National Coordinator of Physical Education, tasked the participants to derive the best practices of the game from the facilitators of the workshop and also try to be good ambassadors of the GES.
Mr. Seth Kofi Duku-Duodu, the Ashanti Regional Sports Development Officer, stressed the need for the participants to redouble their efforts to uplift the development and promotion of the sport in schools.
Mr. Emile Missodey of the Handball Association of Ghana, called on the participants to endeavour to encourage players between the ages of 13-16 to take interest in the sport so that talented players could be raised and drafted into the national team.
The second phase of the workshop will take place in Accra from February 5 to 15 next month.
