JR WPH Pittsburgh

12/19, Pittsburgh, PA, WPH Press-
Jr WPH Pittsburgh kicked off its junior handball program in 2016 with weekly handball clinics at Amerifit Handball Club, home of the WPH’s RFC. WPH Coaches, Rodney Fink and Mike Semplice, lead weekly sessions for young handball players, with handball serving as a cross-training vehicle for Pittsburgh baseball, football, and basketball stars. The athletic juniors quickly progress on Amerifit’s 4-Wall courts, hitting the ball well with both hands and rallying after just a few sessions. The juniors are inspired by the annual RFC, in which Race 4 Eight, WPH Outdoor, and junior stars travel from Arizona, New York, Canada, and Ireland to compete.

“We like to introduce handball as a cross-training tool to get new players on the court,” stated Coach Fink. “Once the kids are on the court, we hope they become addicted to the game, as I did 50 years ago, and play handball for a lifetime.”

Keep an eye out on juniorhandball.org, as new clinic opportunities and recaps pop up weekly. Want to coach a clinic or a junior handball program? Need more information regarding junior handball?
