Handball official blames dearth of programmes on lack of sponsorship


The Lagos State Handball Association, LSHA, on Thursday blamed its inability to organise regular refresher courses for its technical officials on lack of funds.

Chukwuemeka Duru, the Technical Director of LSHA, said that such programmes were usually organised alongside competitions in its yearly calendar, according to Agency reports.

“Competitions of various categories are usually scheduled which guides our programmes in the technical department because we fix our refresher course as part of events.

“But unfortunately, we cannot boast of any programme this year due to poor response from individuals and corporate bodies who could not honour their initial commitment.

“It’s not a pleasant record because we are supposed to hold a comprehensive course for our coaches, referees and match officials at least three times in a year,’’ he said.

He, however, assured that the coaches and referees were still familiar with current rules as most of them visit the official handball website regularly.

According to him, the officials are aware of the importance of keeping players under their supervision well-informed, hence, the need for them to go the extra-mile.

“We expect every official that have the interest of his player at heart to do the needful, and most of them are living up to expectations, so the gap is not much,” he added.

The handball director assured that the body would enhance its sponsorship drive in 2018 to create an enabling environment for adequate activities that would suit both players and officials. (NAN)
