Qualification rounds confirmed for the National Schools Championships

The National Schools Championship is an amazing opportunity to increase the number of primary school pupils (and teachers) playing korfball.

Our vision is to inspire hundreds of children and teachers and help them discover the benefits of our sport and physical activity. The National Schools Championships will create a network with the skills and experience throughout the country to continue to teach Korfball to thousands of new children creating a long-term legacy.

Each of the successful Local School Organisers will host a local school championships in their region as a qualification tournament for the ‘finals’ which will be played at the Copper Box Arena in London.

The qualification tournaments will take place between now and April 2020. The Local School Organisers will work with both existing and new schools within their region to play korfball for an initial six-week period.
