The reform to cut back the zones within the Lower Saxony-Bremen handball affiliation from eleven to 5 is inflicting blended reactions within the Verden district. Excitement about full leagues is tempered by concerns about lengthy journeys and the danger of exploding prices.
Verden – Turn eleven into 5: This is the results of the working group of the Lower Saxony-Bremen Handball Association (HVNB) on the “main proposal for structural reform”. The objective is to reorganize regional ranges and cut back the variety of areas. thus achieved. Handball area Mitte Niedersachsen (HRMN), which incorporates golf equipment within the Verden district, has now submitted these plans to Stur.
From the present eleven, there will probably be 5 from the 2024/2025 season. The golf equipment of the Verdun district are divided into three zones. In the north it goes to Cuxhaven and within the west it’s bordered by Jade Bay. “There are 751 groups, which is presently the strongest,” explains HVNB Vice President Jens Schuff.
It is now not potential to supply handball in all courses within the eleven areas. Therefore, there was no different to reform for me.
The resolution was supported by nearly all of representatives. But it additionally causes totally different reactions. Frank Oetting sees it in two methods: “Due to the merger of HRMN with the Bremen golf equipment, the courses have began to refill once more, they have been very skinny,” says the chairman of TSV Intschede, emphasizing the benefit – along with selling youth. folks within the course of aggressive handball.
For Thorsten Glandien, the rise at school dimension can be an necessary subject. “It is now not potential to supply handball in all grades within the eleven areas. So for me there was no different to reform,” explains SG chairman Achim/Baden. “We misplaced quite a lot of gamers and groups due to Corona.”
Frank Oetting desires golf equipment to go along with them
At least Frank Oetting’s abdomen aches when he seems on the dimension of the world: “It’s big, with journeys so far as Cuxhaven on the programme.” The relay division there ought to stay the identical till now. Achieving all this by the top of summer time 2024 stays bold for him. There is quite a lot of work to be executed, and all this have to be supplemented with life when it comes to personnel. Most necessary for Intscheder: “Clubs must be concerned within the planning and not really feel that selections are being produced from above.”
On the one hand, Dirk Kühl, TSV Daverden divisional supervisor, is a bit anxious: “I do not assume a lot will change for the decrease groups. With 20 video games as an alternative of 16, the gamers do not get as a lot relaxation. But there’s sufficient free time to do one thing with the household. It’s necessary.”
Dirk Kühl is trying ahead to new faces
There is a rise in motivation for the coach of the “Green-White” third social gathering (regional league) and participant of CV Kirchlinteln (regional class): “I’ve performed in opposition to the identical opponents for 22 years. It was actually boring. Now a brand new battle, for instance, with groups from Bremen.
In normal, Kühl agrees along with his colleague Glandien: “There is not any future to proceed working within the entrance areas. There are too few groups, and we’re not going to reverse the demographic change.” However, he would like the highest division to be known as a regional league: “It does not make sense to name it a state league. And then the actual fact of driving from Verden to Wilhelmshaven actually dangers exploding prices.”
View of the volunteer pool
Achim/Baden’s Glandien is happy to see how nicely the case has lastly been ready and the choice made concerning the personnel within the particular person areas: “It is a problem and it takes time to place it in place.” We are in search of volunteers, however there’s a massive pool right here. Eleven areas thus far.”
By the best way: TV Sottrum and TuS Rotenburg (with JH Wümme) will probably be assigned to japanese Lower Saxony (Heide-Elbe area) from 2024 and will thus obtain many new opponents. However, the affiliation retains the again door open for golf equipment from the outdated Rothenburg district: “If each golf equipment need to proceed taking part in with golf equipment from the central Lower Saxony space, they’ll apply till the top of 2023,” it explains. Driver.
A category between the Oberliga and the third league
At a non-public info occasion in February, the HVNB want to showcase what gaming operations will appear to be in community-level efficiency leagues. An further one-way division between the Oberliga and Division 3 is deliberate for girls and males. In addition, there must be ladies’s affiliation leagues. “There will probably be a number of promotions to have fun subsequent season,” Schoff predicts.
