As part of the IKF Korfball Year of the Youth, Malaysia Korfball Association plans to introduce korfball to school students at Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.
As head of Chung Hua High School physical education department, Malaysian korfball pioneer Chee Yong Jungle Lim will teach korfball to 144 14-year-old students at the school. In November that will culminate in an inter-class korfball championship.
As head of the school’s co-curriculum department, Jungle also plans to introduce korfball and train officials for 145 school physical education club members every Saturday morning.
An inter-house korfball championship for U14, U16 and U18 students is planned in June, which will double as a promotional event, showcasing korfball to other students and teachers at the school.
