The USA Team Handball Board of Directors (BOD) met yesterday in Salt Lake City. The meeting was its first as the fully sanctioned National Governing Body recognized by the United States Olympic Committee. On Monday, the USOC Board had removed the “probationary” status granted in April 2008. The move cements USA Team Handball’s status as the recognized Federation for Team Handball in the U.S. and is a significant milestone for the new Federation.
The Board of Director’s meeting covered a number of topics including USA Team Handball’s By-laws and budget. Although not explicitly stated it can also be implied that the Chairman and General Manager’s reports included some discussion in regards to the near term and long term plans for National Team competition and player/grass roots development. Team Handball News has put in a request for budgetary and planning information and will post that information when it becomes available.
