Join the IKF Learning Academy Committee: Shape the Future of Korfball Education!

The IKF is embarking on an exciting new venture with the launch of the Learning Academy. With a mission to spread korfball globally and elevate the sport’s standards, the IKF aims to increase athlete participation and enhance korfball knowledge worldwide. To achieve this, the IKF recognises the crucial role of education programs in supporting the development of its members.

In recent years, the IKF has conducted numerous in-person coach and referee courses across all continents, contributing to the growth of korfball worldwide. However, to further expand and improve these educational offerings, the IKF is committed to enhancing accessibility for National Organisations. The establishment of an online platform is a key solution to facilitate easier access to a variety of courses.

Collaboration lies at the heart of korfball, and the IKF is seeking dedicated volunteers to help establish the Learning Academy. Committee members will work closely with other IKF committees, including Education, Beach, Referees, Playing Rules, Governance, and Urban, among others, to ensure a comprehensive and unified approach to korfball development.

We are seeking volunteers with diverse knowledge and competencies, particularly in areas such as online education, gamification, digital content production, and managing online education platforms.

However, if you have innovative ideas or a passion for korfball education, we encourage you to join our team.

Join Our New Gender Equality & Inclusion Committee!

Are you passionate about building a world where every individual, regardless of their gender, enjoys equal opportunities, respect, and representation?

Do you believe in the power of sport to drive positive change and promote inclusivity?

The IKF is seeking dedicated volunteers to join our Gender Equality & Inclusion Committee.

At IKF, we fully support the principle of gender equality on and off the pitch. Korfball, by design, is gender balanced and equal, and we vigorously advocate for this principle, demonstrating that equal collaboration can indeed create a brighter future for all. Our vision extends beyond the boundaries of sports; we aspire for people worldwide to personally experience the values of gender equality through korfball, at every level and in every function.

The IKF’s commitment to gender equality and inclusion is embedded in our new strategy, announced at the IKF Korfball Congress in October 2023 in Taipei. Now, we are seeking volunteers to help operationalise this vision and implement it within our organisation and sport. Our focus areas include:

1. Gender Equality:
– Establishing partnerships with leading organisations focused on gender equality.
– Harnessing IKF events to drive the gender equality agenda and supporting the IKF Events Committee in doing so.

2. Inclusion:
– Assisting National Organisations in implementing korfball for special needs.
– Supporting National Organisations in adopting inclusive volunteer policies during events.

As a committee member, you will play a vital role in supporting the IKF in defining the Gender Equality & Inclusion plans and facilitating their implementation within the unique context of our sport.

We are looking for volunteers who:
– Are passionate about gender equality and inclusion.
– Are culturally sensitive and embrace diversity.
– Bring a positive and enthusiastic attitude to their work.

If you are eager to promote Gender Equality and Inclusion through korfball globally, if you have innovative ideas to share, and if you’re ready to be part of a new team, we want to hear from you.
