In 2008 headis was established in schools by René Wegner and Felix Weins. Headis was played in p.e. classes and recreation days by the pupils.
How to teach and play headis was explained in the journal “Sportpraxis des Jahres 2009”.
Since 2008 headis school projects were established in different regions of Germany.This was done by different players in those regions. In 2010 Daniel Völker created a teaching method for schools to teach headis in p.e. it was very well received by the pupils and some of them entered into the headis tournament series
The series was a great success, numerous pupils participated at the next HEADIS Cup
Ralph Hilderscheidt dealt in his exam work with the activation of teenagers by introducing "active breaks" and he discovered that HEADIS is a great opportunity to engage young people to be sportive.

Headis got very popular in lower saxonian schools. The offer to play Headis was very well accepted and therefore there will be an extra headis seminar in 2011.
In addition, the mothertown of Headis, Kaiserslautern, supportet Headis by setting up „Jugend bewegt Kaiserslautern“ in 2010. The result was that all schools and youth centers were delivered with Headis balls.
Numerous Headis workshops took place where sport coaches and youth leaders had the chance to learn how to play Headis properly. Sport trainees from Kaiserslautern got also a skill enhancement in Headis in collaboration with unisport of the technical university Kaiserslautern.
There you´ll find the neccessary stuff to teach Headis (basically Balls and nets) too.
Plenty of schools in Kaiserslautern integrated headis by introducing „active breaks“ or directly as a school subject. The project was even that successfull that several mediastations got interested in that „new sport“. Due to its success, the project should be realised in other german towns too.
