# Handball at School
Through its "Handball Everywhere and For Everyone" project, MAHB organises introduction to mini-handball sessions in primary schools in Montpellier and its surrounding areas. Working in close partnership with different bodies (National Education Authority, USEP, Montpellier Town Council, Hérault Sport), all the sessions are run by qualified coaches or coaches undergoing their training period (STAPS students or players from the MAHB Academy). With the blessing of the National Education Authority, these coaches, together with specialists from Montpellier Town Council, work to spread the game of handball throughout the town by organising sessions with a large number of pupils.
