Portland is developing Youth Handball

Our friends from Oregon, lead by Jan Vanderstraeten, are developing Youth Team Handball in elementary schools:

The kids called themselves the Quatschi Club, after the only team in Portland: Team Handball Club, “Portland Sasquatch” and after the fact they make a lot of Quatsch. In the camps, we offer an intense and active, skill-driven curriculum for elementary school aged kids that mainly focuses on the team work that is the base for playing Team Handball and many other sports, and life.  So what skills do they actually learn: Well, Handball is perfect for coordination of the legs/arms/core, passing, throwing, shooting, dribbling, timing, jumping, falling, rolling, pushing, pulling, reflexes, rhythm.
