Korfball will be a key feature in the upcoming Alabama State Health & Physical Education attended by hundreds of PE teachers from around the state.
I will be planning to attend and help present the sport as well as help teachers interested in finding out how they can purchase equipment and get a Korfball program started in their school.
Our hope is to build a solid foundation of school Korfball in the Birmingham City region and eventually statewide from which the sport can grow in the US and then use the World Games which takes place in Birmingham in 2021 to further fuel existing enthusiasm and promote the sport.

We will also be doing a presentation on Korfball to a group of high school teachers on Tuesday June 26th and this will be a good first step in the efforts to get the sport into the school curriculum in the state.

A successful workshop and presentation with many of the PE teachers at the conference interested in the sport.
We will be working with the Birmingham City Schools department to introduce Korfball into the schools curriculum throughout the state with the potential to establish a strong foundation for the sport in the US from which it can spread.
Birmingham also has a group of young athletes who have been working towards to goal of a US Korfball team taking part in the 2021 World Games and we discussed how the USKF can support them to make it happen
