Folk high school and handball

Your individual development as a handball player is in focus. You get to work with dueling games, training understanding, physical training and nutrition. We will develop your technical and tactical skills, and ensure that you receive individually tailored injury prevention training.

Together with you, we will set short-term and long-term goals, and give you guidance in the training work to achieve these.

The most important "talent" to become a good handball player is willingness and joy in training, want to compete, – and patience. It takes time to get good!

Christian Berge

I've learned that it's only good to meet new people, step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself. I got to see and experience a lot of handball and that built on my joy for the sport.

- Simon Hansen

I have gotten to know myself better, and made many new friends. I have also developed a lot as a handball player.

- Åsne Lund

I was very doubtful whether I should apply, but I don't regret it for a second afterwards! You will make friends for life, and the opportunity to do what you think is fun for a whole year.

- Tuva Iversen

The year gave me an extra kick to continue working hard with handball.

- Martin Helland


If you wish, you can get training and match offers, at your level, through Elverum Handball. We also have opportunities for hosting with Storhamar Handball, for women's players who are at this level. There will be close cooperation between the school and the club in terms of training volume and workload.

Go to Elverum Handball's websites.

As a student on the line, you get to see Elverum Handball Men's matches in Terningen Arena. You can also follow some of the training of Elverum Handball towards important matches. You will get tactical choices, see the result of the choices in battle, and discuss the choices before and after.

Folkehøgskolen provides a safe and social everyday life, in a city with great opportunities for handball professional inspiration. We want to help you create ownership for your own training routine.
