USA MEN AND WOMEN’S HANDBALL PROGRAMS a SUCCESS at AUBURN
USA WOMEN'S HANDBALL TEAM TO PLAY ALBERTA, CANADA
Men and women from around the country are making Auburn, Alabama their home to join the USA Men and Women’s National Handball Teams. They live or go to school at Auburn University to stay in top shape and practice year found.
Many of them were former basketball, baseball or other team members who decided they wanted to try their skills at handball.
They compete on an international level, hosting a number of international matches at the Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum. This week, March 24-26 the women’s team plays Alberta, Canada.
They also face stiff competition from teams from as far away as Uruguay.
And they’re recruiting on a much younger level. An Auburn news release states, “The School of Kinesiology conducts a grassroots youth program to introduce children to the sport of team handball around the state and in the southeast region. These children will be the next generation of great handball players in the United States.”
This week’s game is free to the public. If you want more information about the game the contact number is 719.866.2203. And for more information about what it takes to join the team see the team website below.
