Youth California Cup 2017 – Youth Team Handball at its best

The Youth California Cup (CalCup) is the season highlight of the Bay Area Youth Team Handball League. All schools were determined to show how much they have grown in the 10 weeks since the September coaching clinic. Fremont California was once again transformed into the epicenter for Youth Team Handball in the US. 

After a full weekend of sheer handball frolic, here is what this year’s Youth CalCup brought us:

  • More than 12 hours of live streamed games (which can still be found in our video section on Facebook )
  • Five high school + four middle school teams paving the way for Team Handball in the U.S.
  • 535 goals scored by players of all experience levels
  • Winning teams from Sterne School (HS) and Lycée Français de San Francisco (MS) – CONGRATS!
  • 100+ kids improving their skill sets and getting one step closer to the 2028 Olympic games in LA

Big shout out to all the schools, coaches, parents, and (especially) volunteers who made it possible for children in the Bay Area to play Team Handball. We are proud to say that SF CalHeat is breaking ground for Team Handball in the U.S., but all this would never happen without everyone’s amazing – and continuous – support.
Congratulations to Sterne, Lycee, Stanbridge, Bayhill, Compass, Castillero, and Calheat Youth for playing a great tournament. The progress you have all made since last year is incredible and we are excited to see you back again next year.

We also want to thank Hummel USA for being an amazing partner, giving parents the chance to purchase team handball gear and donating many items to our raffle.

You can find more pictures of the event on our Facebook and Instagram channels.
