Junior WPH has been instrumental in improving the grades of its youth players, motivating youth to graduate from high school and college, and become leaders in handball and the community.

Junior WPH launched a global initiative in 2013 to teach youth handball and all of the benefits that handball provides. Junior WPH focuses on not just the fundamentals and competition of handball, but also the discipline, leadership, character, and integrity that handball and Junior WPH promotes.  The WPH has certified a number of coaches with the WPH Coaching Manual and Coaching Certification Process to teach the game in a structured and fun environment. Many of the certified coaches are current pros who are eager to give back to the game and develop the next generation of players.

The WPH seeks funding for Junior WPH programs, to include all items necessary for the youth to play this sport and view this sport (ie. memberships, merchandise; gloves, shoes, goggles, balls, etc): www.thehandballstore.com/donations.
