Club Secretary and Trafford Handball Coach
I’m Jessica Persson, your club secretary and one of the coaches here at the club. It’s been great to get to know the players and some of you parents better this season! I hope to meet more of you as the season progresses, just come and say hi if you’re around!
I was born in Sweden, played handball since I was 9, and moved to Manchester 11 years ago. My background is in A-level PE teaching and I’ve also worked as a development officer for England Handball. Most recently, I’ve focused on raising my 3 children while volunteering with various handball clubs and county teams in Manchester.
Currently, my role within Trafford Handball is mainly as a coach in various schools, along with admin and club development. Throughout the season I’m keen to further develop our U12 section with a focus on physical literacy, and building our coaching workforce as we team up with local students at various HE institutions.
It’s been a brilliant journey so far, to help build a stronger handball community in the UK, and I can’t wait to see what Trafford Handball Club can do in the future!
