USA Handball Talk (Episode 3): Boxing Around the Handball Drama

It’s a Boxing Day edition of USA Handball Talk and we take a deeper dive into the challenges the U.S. Women’s program faces. Discussion points include:

  • Why it will be tough for the U.S. Women to duplicate the success of the current U.S. Men’s team
  • Why there isn’t time now for a grass roots solution
  • Three different paths forward for the U.S. Women
  • The need for USA Team Handball to make a decision on the path forward
  • Why a decision to focus on transfer talent athletes will require a lot of planning
  • Why a transfer talent focus will need credibility and quality to successfully recruit athletes
  • Could a reality show documentary simultaneously fund a talent transfer program and provide great promotion?

We didn’t solve anything, but there was lots of great discussion and we addressed a lot of issues. Let us know if we missed any key issues that you would like to see us address.
