Coach Daniel and Coach Drft explained the rules of handball and coached the fundamentals in extremely organized and fun camp sessions.

“The camp was awesome,” stated Coach Cordova. “We ended the last three days with tournaments for the kids. The kids who took first or second in their age divisions would be able to choose from various WPH prizes, including WPH shirts, gloves, or goggles. The kids were excited throughout the tournament, especially during the short-court tournament in which the kids played the coaches.”

“A lot of the kids are going to continue playing this fall after school,” stated JR WPH Juarez program head coach and founder Richie Fernandez. “The new kids will join our already flourishing JR WPH junior handball program in Juarez.”

“We are so fortunate to have Coach Daniel and Coach Richie inspiring the next generation of players in Juarez,” stated WPH Development Director David Fink. “In just their early to mid 20’s, Coach Daniel and Coach Richie are already two of the greatest ambassadors in the game. The WPH could not be more grateful for what these two great young men are doing to grow the sport.”
