WPH Press, Tucson, AZ, 7/17/18 JR WPH was thrilled to coach junior handball clinics for the Lohse Downtown Family YMCA Summer Camp in Tucson, AZ, featuring world-class handball instruction from JR WPH Certified Coaches. The first-time Lohse summer camp players learned the basics of handball, focusing on throwing and hitting the ball with both hands and eventually rallying and playing short-court points. The youngsters also participated in several physical fitness activities, to include relay-races, burpees, mountain climbers, and side-to-side jumps.

“JR WPH has held winter junior handball clinics at the Lohse YMCA and we were excited to introduce handball to the Lohse YMCA summer campers this summer,” stated WPH Development Director David Fink. “The youngsters really enjoyed playing handball for the first time and many of them improved dramatically from the beginning to the end of the clinics.”

“A few of the kids were apprehensive about playing handball for the first time and each of them told me after the clinics how much fun they had,” stated Lohse YMCA Camp Director Kendra Whetton.
