As a javelin thrower in college, I was acquainted with handball via YouTube clicking on links on javelin videos. As an American, the sport represents all of the skills we grew up learning such as, running, jumping, hitting, and throwing. Right after graduating in the 2010, I started playing for a club team in Boston where I was able to learn how to play. After making the national team in under a year, I quickly set my sights on Rio in 2016. Neither the men’s or women’s national teams qualified for London which prompted the USA Team Handball Federation to create a residency program at Auburn University. In seemed like a no brainer to leave friends, family, and a comfortable job behind to pursue Olympic Dreams for Team USA. Now in Auburn we are training around 20 hours per week not including treatment and video sessions AND working only part time jobs. All we are asking for is a help to offset living expenses and give you the chance to support Team USA.
Team USA is not funded by the government and completely relies on private donations and sponsorships. Support the USA Team Handball National Teams now by clicking the orange "Donate" button to the right of the page! Let's travel the Road to Rio together!!
