MY STORY with USA TEAM HANDBALL:

I started playing Team Handball in Israel when I was 11, fell in love with the game, and have been playing ever since. Growing up, my team represented our school in national and international tournaments, and in 10th grade I joined the Israeli National Team, representing Israel in 26 international games.  I also played for “B’nei Hertzeliya” club in Israel, winning 8 national championships in a row and 7 national cups.                    

Handball has always been a big part of my life, and now that I have finished my BA from Tel-Aviv University, I have decided to expand my horizons.

As a proud dual citizen of both Israel and America, my dream of competing in the Summer Olympics has recently brought me to Auburn, Alabama, where I tried out and was invited to join the USA Team Handball team. What an honor!

Leaving my job, family, and friends behind to pursue my dream, I have accepted this once in a lifetime opportunity. Our typical training workload averages around 30 hours a week. Because of this commitment, I will not be able to work a full time job to cover my every day expenses.  Unfortunately, USA Team Handball does not currently have the necessary funds to be able to

help the athletes offset expenses while training. Each athlete pays for his/her own room, board, and any other living expenses, including some additional travel costs for competitions. I am committed to this journey and know how important every day training and competition is to our international success. That is why I am reaching out in search of donations. All donations, no matter how much, are tax deductible.  Any support that you could provide would be greatly appreciated as it will allow me to pursue full time training, furthering our teams chances of accomplishing our goal of competing in the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto and 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Team USA is not funded by the government and completely relies on private donations and sponsorships. Support the USA Team Handball Women's National Team now by clicking the orange "Donate" button to the right of the page!  Let's travel the Road to Rio together!!            


Thanks, Shani
