JR WPH CLINIC at the '17 WAFE Risner


JR WPH Clinic at the ’17 Wafe Risner Memorial

Los Angeles, California, WPH Press, May 20th, 2017 – Race for Eight pros Victor Perez, Armando Ortiz, Sean Lenning, and Marcos Chavez kicked off the Wafe Risner with a sensational junior handball clinic on the first afternoon of the tournament, inspiring the next generation of Southern California handball superstars in the process. The pros, alongside living legend, Vince Munoz, split the group of fifteen junior players onto two courts, teaching serves, back wall technique, ceiling shots, kill shots, and introducing the proper pre-shot footwork and tactics. Following the instruction, the pros played doubles points with the youngsters, giving the next generation of players the opportunity to experience handball at the highest level.

“It was really nice to have all the kids around learning from the pros,” stated Coach Marcos Chavez. “The kids had played for two hours before the clinic and it was great seeing their passion for the sport. All of the kids were given WPH shirts, Owen Gloves, and lunch boxes and were all very appreciative.”

Huge thanks to Race 4 Eight pros Marcos Chavez, Sean Lenning, Vic Perez, and Mando Ortiz for coaching the clinic, the LAAC for hosting the clinic, and 2017 Wafe Risner/LAAC Spring Open tournament director Gary Cruz.
