San Francisco CalHeat is an amateur Team Handball Club based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The club consists of both Men's and Women's teams that compete at the highest amateur level in the United States. The teams consist of players from age 15 to 40+ from many different cultural backgrounds, but all living in the greater San Francisco Bay area.
As an amateur club, we do not have team sponsorship and each player is responsible for their own expenses associated with travel and competition.
Although, we intend on developing a group responsible for pursuing sponsorship opportunities with the intent on raising funds to cover equipment and uniform costs, as well as competition fees.
San Francisco CalHeat has a great tradition of Team Handball success at the National Level in the United States. The Men's team won the US National Championship in 1984-86 and 1990, a silver medal in 1987 and a bronze medal in 1996, 2001 and 2002.
The Women's team has won the gold medal in 2003 and 2006, the silver medal in 1997-98 and 2004-05, and the bronze medal in 1995-96. Several former US Olympians and US National team members have played for the CalHeat.
CalHeat is also involved with the development of youth Team Handball players by supporting the Centerville Jr. High Team Handball club with coaching and refereeing.
We are always looking for individuals interested in joining our club, including players, coaches and volunteers. Our Vision for this club is to expand our structure to where we have a development feeder system consisting of Jr. and Sr. High School programs that would feed into youth teams (14-16, 16-18, 18-21 yr olds), a Senior Division II team and a Senior Division I team.

Dear Valued Handball Friends,
This year is slowly coming to its end. Therefore let me briefly recap Calheat’s successes of this year.
In January of 2011 the Calheat men’s team remained unbeaten at the California Cup and was able to recapture the Cup back from Los Angeles against a very strong field of teams from Canada, Japan and the East Coast of the US.
Dear valued handball friends,
Let me first welcome all of you to the 2011/2012 handball season and thank you all for your great participation so far.
