NATIONAL HANDBALL TEAM DEVELOPMENT MODELS IN SELECTED COUNTRIES AND DEFINING A COUNTRY-SPECIFIC MODEL FOR MACEDONIA

Kiril Lazarov

Every country develops and creates its own models and strategies for handball development. These models are based on the country-specific conditions for achieving success of its handball clubs or national teams. The actions of the countries for fulfilling these goals can be seen through implementation and development of policies and legislation for support or regulation of activities of sporting organizations. Most of the governments of the developed or developing countries are investing in elite sporting centres in order to improve the conditions for sportsman for national or international competition. The governments are financing national sport organizations. They organize sport events like European or World championships or they are financing sporting infrastructure for the previously mentioned goals. The experiences from applying these models and strategies from the countries that have major success in handball or in sport generally, can create additional value in the Macedonian handball model in order to continue and improve its results. Analysis of the handball models in several countries with major success of national handball teams show that they have different elements and different systems that obviously show results. One of the first and most common element for all of the models is working with young handball players and achieving great results in the competitions for these categories that forms the basis for senior national teams.
