“Obviously it has been an incredibly busy year for USATH, would be an understatement,” said Cavanaugh from the analysis, which looked at their own activity in regard to the IHF, improvements within the North American and Caribbean place, involvement with the US Olympic Committee as well as also the actions of their men’s and women’s national teams in beach and indoor handball.


10-Year Tactical Strategy

Yet another vital characteristic of the strategic plan was supposed to promote hand-ball to American sports fans throughout television broadcasts, and also the 2019 IHF Men’s World Championship watched a strategic link to a few of those USA’s biggest broadcasters.


&ldquoWe were thrilled to get the chance to view the principal round games on television in America during NBC’s Olympic Channel,” said Cavanaugh. “This has really turned into a desire for our organisation for a long time and we are pleased to announce now that the 2019 IHF Women’s World Championships will be aired in December on NBC’s Olympic Channel.


“it was great to find the live broadcast of the gold and bronze medal matches, rounding out the week of fantastic matches,” he also added. “Anyone watching the hand-ball for the firsttime was treated to some thrilling ending between France and Germany from the bronze match, while Denmark over powered Norway in the ultimate — that is all thanks to a wonderful deal of behindthescenes work (out of USATH).


Strengthening national groups, spreading the match

The report also discussed the increased competitiveness of national teams in relation to the placement of these in major international competitions such as Olympic Games, World Championships and Pan American Games and which led in USATH receiving funding from the United States’ Olympic Committee (USOC) Sports Performance Group (SPG).


Both the united states men’s and women’s senior teams had training teams in and outside of the nation, as well as adding fresh players — all with the goal of beating Canada in the Pan American Games play-offs, which they did. The report looked at the USA-hosted IHF Trophy in West Dundee, which saw USA men’s youth and junior teams with the team continuing forward to the continental stage and also winning gold. IHF foreign weeks during upcoming, training camps are intended.

“no 1 man was cited by name in the title,” concluded Cavanaugh. “This is due to the fact that we are made up of volunteers leading to our beloved sport that if you begin to say a few you invariably leave out many folks that are deserving.



&ldquoWe must recognise the ongoing aid of the USA Team Handball Foundation, especially for their continuing financial aid given to our national team programmes.


Awaiting 2019, the Northeast Team Handball League has its regular match days, and then the try-outs in February, this will be followed with the 2019 Collegiate National Championships, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 26-28 April and the US Open National Championships taking place from 23-26 May in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
