Fresno, California, WPH Press, 8/8/17- JR WPH proudly hosted a instructional at Fresno’s Hotter Than Heck 3-Wall event on the first weekend in August, with WPH Outdoor pro and WPH Certified Coach Sal Duenas educating the youngsters on the importance of hydration, stretching and point-play strategy.  “A lot of athletes, both young and old, do not take the sun seriously enough when they train and compete outside in the summer,” stated WPH Development Director David Fink. “Failure to hydrate and prepare for the sun can have dramatic and even fatal consequences. Our goal in Fresno was to stress the importance of hydrating before, during and after training and competing in the sun, making sure that athletes fuel and replenish with electrolytes and the necessary minerals to avoid heat stroke and dehydration.”

[jrs-in-fresno-300x169]Along with the hydration education, Coach Duenas introduced various stretching and warm-up exercises to prepare the junior players for playing a handball match. Coach Duenas then observed and coached the junior players during point-play situations. Thank you very much to Coach Duenas for teaching important lessons to the next generation of handball stars.
