OC Camp 3San Francisco, CA, WPH Press, 8/16/16- JR WPH was thrilled to sponsor the All Handball Junior Summer Camp in the first week of August at San Francisco’s Olympic Club, hosted by WPH Certified Coach Emmett Peixoto. WPH Master Instructor Peixoto coached 13 junior campers during the five-day camp, ranging in levels of play from beginner to national champion. The youngsters were taught the sidearm, overhand, and underhand swings, as well as footwork, back wall drills, rules, and strategy of the game. Each session started with stretching and ended with a mini-tournament, with each of the kids supporting one another in the tournament matches.

Each junior demonstrated a remarkable willingness to learn and vast improvement throughout the week of instruction, particularly with the off hand stroke. “That’s my left,” exclaimed 13-year old Andrew Negrete after hitting a three-inch high kill with his off hand. “My left is already improving!”

“I just want to thank Coach Peixoto for coaching the camp,” stated one of the camper’s parents. “My son truly enjoyed the camp and he is eager to continue playing and improving.”OC Camp 5

As the Handball Club Pro Emeritus at the Olympic Club, Coach Peixoto teaches daily handball lessons for juniors and adults, while also training to compete on the WPH Race 4 Eight tour. Thank you to the WPH, the Olympic Club, the Olympic Club handball commissioner Dean Crispen, the San Jose Handball Club, and the NorCal handball community for providing handball gear and scholarships to enable the youngsters to enjoy a tremendous week of handball at the storied Olympic Club.
