Jr WPH Goes Outdoor

Buena Park, CA, WPH Press, 3/20/18– JR WPH was thrilled to present a fun junior handball clinic and tournament for 20 junior handball players in Buena Park, CA on the third Sunday in March. Pro Players led the clinic for the young future stars; emphasizing the value of good footwork and fundamentals, hydrating during matches, and always having fun on the court. Coach Duenas also stressed the importance of being humble, playing with integrity and sportsmanship, and respecting your opponent.

The youngsters had the opportunity to demonstrate what they learned in the junior singles tournament that followed the clinic. The 20 youngsters competed in four divisions, with all of the passionate junior players displaying outstanding sportsmanship and skills.
