2016 Junior 3-Wall Nationals



Two of our junior players, Josh Rivera and Jon Gutierrez traveled to Venice Beach to play in the 2016 USHA Juniors 3-Wall Nationals.


Josh played in the 15 and under singles and advanced to the semis where he finished in 4th place.  This is Josh's first nationals.  We hope he's got "the handball bug" and will continue to advance both locally and nationally.


Jon played in the 17 and under singles and finished as a semi-finalist.  He played in the 19 and under doubles with partner, Carlos Espinoza from Tucson.  They teamed well and finished 2nd losing 21-18, 21-14.


Congratulations to both these young men.  They did Colorado proud!


Bob Hickman, Director

Web site being rebuilt

The web site has been experiencing major issues over the last 6 or 8 months, and the decision has been made to completely rebuild the site.  Rebuilding the entire web site will take some time.  Currently the Events calendar page is up to date, and News page will continue to reflect the most current news.  Other features like the rule book, tutorials, hall of fame pages, Arne's photos, etc. will be rebuilt as time permits.

If you have a favorite feature you want to see sooner, please send an email to - the features with the most demand will be worked on first.  Thanks in advance for your patience and support.

NEW User Maintained Pages
We now have 2 user maintained pages - where registered users can add and update information directly.  The pages are the User Maintained 3-Wall Schedule and the User Maintained Shuttle Schedule. Promote your shuttle,or your 3-wall events and help players who are new to the game, or visitors from out of town, or recent transplants who are not familiar with the area.  If you have any questions or concerns about the content in these pages or being able to edit the entries, please use the Send Email page to contact us - we monitor the email 24x7 and promise to respond quickly!  - (published here on Saturday, June 29, 2013)

Submit your handball news items
Consider this your chance to get your handball related event, tourney results, or news items published on the most popular handball web site in the Rocky Mountain Region.  Just send an email with your photos, comments, news, or event details to - we will make room available for all submissions made in good faith - it is entirely free, you don't have to pay a cent.

Also note that if you are a dues paying member in the CHA (which automatically includes *everyone* who played in the 2012 fall traveling league) - you can submit a sky-scraper formatted ad and it will be rotated in to page views on our home page at no additional cost to you.  Several members take advantage of this - you can see their ads along the right side by scrolling down the page.  Sky-scraper format is 120 pixels wide by 600 pixels high - enough to grab serious attention from our site visitors.  And it is a proven fact that handball players prefer to do business with other handball players before any unknown business entity, so it pays to get your business recognized.  Just send your ad content to the same email noted above.  - (published here on Sunday, April 14, 2013)

Did you know?
That you can sign up for an email reminder of upcoming tourney events, on a per-event basis?  We know that many of you wait until the last possible minute to enter a tourney - even when you know you want to enter.  You just don't want to enter early and then have to cancel because of a conflict that comes up at work, with your family, or an injury.  But don't miss the entry deadline just because it fell off your radar.  We will send you an email 8 days before the tourney event to remind you.  Sign up on the event calendar for the event you want to be reminded of.  - (published here on Sunday, January 16, 2011)
