Since 2009, several of us have been teaching the wonderful sport of handball to young people at the Midway YMCA and at the University of Minnesota. This year we are sending six teenage players to the World Handball Championship in Minneapolis, August 9-19, 2018. Three of these young men came from families that could not afford membership at the YMCA. Because of the scholarships from your Foundation, these young men are able to use the Y handball courts during the summer and prepare for the international competition in August.
The Minnesota Youth Handball community would like to thank you for the scholarships you made available for youth in St. Paul. It is making a real difference for our program and for these young men. We hope to make Minnesota and the Midway Y proud at the World Championships. Again thank you for your support of Youth in Minnesota.
Midway YMCA has always been a hotbed for Handball. A few key long time handball players Gary Aeles, Rich Ryan, Emanuel Woods, Ray Miller, Greg Taylor, Ted Bergstrom ( 83 years young) and all the other handball players have helped build a new group of young handball players at the Y.
