Currently, there are no active US National Teams. Until recently, the US Men were practicing in the Atlanta area on a part time basis. In the past the US has had resident National Team programs that trained full time. As the US had only a limited number of youth players, the full time program was generally used to convert athletes from other sports into handball players. For several years there had been no Men’s program and the Women’s program which had been training in Cortland, NY was stopped after the Women failed to qualify for the 2008 Olympics.
