The most important thing is to have fun!

In every interview with Sander, there's one thing he always mentions: "The most important thing is to have fun!"

The foundation of all sports lies primarily in having fun and Sander's sports childhood is no exception. We've had a little chat with Sander to hear what he thinks was especially important with his childhood and maybe we can bring some of it right now when we start up again.

Sander grew up with much other than just handball. Nevertheless, it was something his handball coach managed to create a good team – a group of friends who loved to play handball together.

One of the things that triggered this bunch was competitions. Most of the training was for competitions, and this helped create a unity that lifted the team many notches. They learned to collaborate through competitions. They were just having fun! Luckily, they were never the same ones who won. The coach always made even teams and had so many different aspects in the competitions that all the boys knew about mastery. The handball team was neither the best nor the greatest physically in their year class, but they always wanted to win and think the funniest thing in the world was to win, both in play at training and in matches.

Of course, you have to be able to find a balance on how much and what kind of competitions suit your team. I'm afraid there's no such thing as a flur caption. Children are different so it's just to try their hand, but always keep in mind that the most important thing is the response from the children, all the kids!

And remember, the most important thing is to have fun!
