Search for Youth Director

Memo from the Colorado Handball Association Board of Directors

At the December 2019 CHA Board of Directors meeting, Bob Hickman announced his intention to resign from his position as Director of Costigan Youth Handball effective at the end of 2021.

This gives the CHA Board about two years to search for a new Youth Director.  Bob has indicated his willingness to work closely with the Board and with those who have interest in this position.  That includes active mentoring, transfer of history, the procedures and detailed knowledge necessary for a seamless transition.  Candidates will ultimately be screened by the CHA Board with final selection by the Board.

The CHA Board is proud of the Costigan Youth Handball program and the national prestige it has earned among USHA members.  We are confident our youth program will prosper and grow in the future.

If you have interest in learning more about the detail of this role, please contact either Bear Meiring - or Bob Hickman -  This position is an exciting and rewarding experience for the right person committed to our Youth Development.

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.
