    Hi Don,
    My son is 10 and he would like to try handball. How do we go about setting up a try pout session for him?

  • Dan says:

    Are there any youth programs/leagues for ages 8-18 around Riverside or Oak Park?

  • Steve Gasser says:

    It has been a long time since I have been at the Layton YMCA in DesPlaines, but I have to tell you Don Quinlan was top notch at motivating kids in handball but also in the promotion of the sport.

    I never played the game but worked there in the 1980’s.

    Athletes don’t realize that it is a great off season sport that helps develop good hand eye coordination.
