Women's Sports Are on the Rise

by Mary Kreis



“We are the champions, we are the champions!”  Women’s sports are the champions!  After an incredible weekend of NCAA Final Four Women’s Basketball action, not only is women’s basketball the champions, but all of women’s sports came out as champions!

The statistics don’t lie - the New York Times reported that peak viewership for the National Championship game was at 12.6 million views and that this doubled the overall viewership of the championship game last year. This game made history as the most viewed college sporting event…ever on ESPN+.  The highlights were watching the Iowa “Caitlin Clark Show” with her record scoring 191 points, in addition to her 32 3-pointers - the most scored in a single women’s NCAA tournament.  Louisiana State’s star and the tournament’s MVP, Angel Reese, achieved the most double-doubles in a single season with 34.

Iowa‘s Monika Czinano offered these two words of advice for the future of women’s basketball: “Buckle up.”  We here at USA Team Handball want to offer the same advice to YOU - fans of all women’s sports!  Basketball season may be over, but the action doesn’t stop there!  Buckle up, because we are about to “take you on a ride” - with the US Women’s National Team!

Y’all ready for this!? The “ride” begins with a stop over in Los Angeles, where the team just finished a successful training camp.  With 25+ athletes in attendance along with 5 coaches, the team was able to focus on skill training and actual match competitions at the week’s conclusion.  There could not be a more exciting place to train right now with the 2028 Olympic Games in LA on the horizon.  The US Women’s National Team visited the site of the past Olympics at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum - bringing inspiration to their goals and souls.

Next stop on the “ride” will be Dallas, Texas, y’all!  From April 10-16, the US Women’s National Team will host its second training camp in two months on American soil.  Current, as well as new players to the game, are encouraged to attend as many days and sessions as possible.  Women who have participated in other competitive sports in the past will be taught handball techniques and will play alongside current members of Team USA in the twice-a-day practices.  

The “ride” or journey for the US Women’s National Team continues on to Nuuk, Greenland in June where the team will compete in the 2023 North American & Caribbean Handball Confederation (NACHC) Women's Senior Handball Championships.  Six to eight countries are predicted to participate in this World Cup qualification tournament.  These camps in LA and Dallas are great opportunities for the players to train in preparation for this tremendous tournament. 

So, remember to “buckle up”, women’s sports fans, as the US Women’s Team Handball Team “takes you on a ride” as we prepare for and travel to compete in the World Championship qualifier tournament in Greenland!  You, too, can be a “champion” with women’s team handball in the USA!
