HC Eeklo tries to give the opportunity to both children and adults and despite their social background, race or ideology, to practice handball, not only emphasizing the sporting goals itself but also in a social character. Our device “More than just Sport” is based on this. Our main drive since the founding of our club is to succeed in both the sporting as well as the social aspects.
The sporting guidance is in charge of our trainers who all have had a formation through the official formations from BLOSO, the Belgian federation and EHF. They follow on a regular base several updates. The club yearly invests in giving all club members a decent formation in order to guarantee a medical justified way of training.
Off the field, we also need some helping hands and this is done by parents, family members and other volunteers who are helping for free. The Club Board asks an involvement from these people because many hands make work light. The engagement of these people emphasize the family ties within our handball family.
The governing Board, the Committee of our annual International Youth Tournament Karel Lodewijk Ledeganck and the Sporting Committee are having monthly meetings in order to discuss all aspects of the club and to guarantee a qualitative and maximal output on all levels. This happens on a free base which says it all about the engagement of these people.
To further develop our club, not only with a good sporting structure but also in regard to the administrative follow-up to guarantee our existence on long term.
To train players, starting from our youth formation, and guiding them on a long term to the Belgian top. Already, several players have been selected in regional an national selection teams. (During the season 2008-2009, 4 girls who had their formation in Eeklo, played in the Belgian first division).
To become, with own formed players, one of Belgian’s leading clubs and this with the biggest attention for a good sporting – financial balance.
