Sir Clive Woodward to speak at England Handball Conference

ONE of Britain’s most successful sporting coaches in recent times, Sir Clive Woodward will be the keynote speaker at the England Handball coaching conference in Liverpool this summer.

Perhaps best know for coaching the England Rugby union side to World Cup glory in 2003, Sir Clive is now deputy chef de mission for the 2010 Winter Games for the British Olympic Association, where he is in charge of elite performance.

His speech at the coaching conference will cover performance and leadership, and it is hoped will teach people in the handball community something of his highly successful approach to coaching.

“We’re delighted to have Sir Clive coming to our conference,” said EHA chairman Mike Briers. “Obviously we hope the delegates will learn from his speech, but it is a good opportunity for him to come and see something of the work and great strides we’re making so that handball can become more widely known and played.”

The three-day conference runs from June 26-28 and places are still available for the event at the Greenbank Sports Academy in Liverpool. Sir Clive will be there throughout the day on Saturday, but there are events taking place throughout the weekend.

As well as Sir Clive, the EHA have also invited BHA technical advisor and leading Danish handball official Allan Lund to attend, as well as other top coaches from Sweden.
