Malawi Handball Association (Maha) is excited at coach Blackson Malamula’s progress in Germany where he is pursuing a six-month diploma course.
Malamula has two months remaining on the course and reports reaching Maha so far are encouraging, the association’s general secretary Dennis Kumwenda said in a statement.
“The association has received reports from course organisers that Blackson is excelling in his studies. He is doing better in theory and practical lessons. He has assured Maha through e-mail that the skills he is gaining will be used to develop the game,” said Kumwenda.
Malamula works as desk officer for sports for Central Western Education Division. He will, among other things, be assigned to introduce handball in tertiary institutions, police and Army.
During practical lessons, Malamula officiates Germany handball school games. He is the second qualified trainer of trainers to undergo such a high-level course outside Malawi. The first one was Pulex Msuku.
The Mzuzu-based Msuku attended a similar programme in Hungary.
“We have other local coaches well trained by international experts sent by International Handball Federation. Maha is grateful to Malawi National Council of Sports for the sponsorship.
