What's going on with youth handball in Minnesota?
- Thank you to the Mankato program that is growing a group of young players learning the great game of handball
- Out of the Midway/University of Minnesota we have 3 young men going to play in the Junior Nationals in December 2017. Also, it looks like Mankato is sending 2 young men to play. ( Great Job!)
- A big shout out to Tim Labey, Mike McQuilan, and Steve Johnson for working with the young men.
- We will be dividing the program starting in January 2018 where we are going to send the older players to the U of M on Saturday from 1pm - 3 pm. This is a great opportunity to get involved as we need your help to do the teaching and coaching of these players.
- I will continue to recruit and train the new players at the Midway Y on Saturdays from 1 - 3 pm. We could use your help to coach and teach as we should have between 10 and 20 young players.
- We hope to find a sponsor to help defer the cost of inviting all the aspiring new players to come to the handball banquet April 25, 2018. Many times they do not feel a part of the larger community and this would be good opportunity for someone from the handball community to help mentor the new players.
- If you have old balls and old gloves it would be good to collect some to give to the younger players.
