A Big Thank You for A Successful Junior Fundraiser!

The Ontario Handball Association would like to thank everyone who attended our 2019 Junior Fundraiser on Saturday February 9th. We appreciate all of the support, through donations and participation we were able to surpass our goal!! Thank you for your ongoing generosity in supporting the growth and development of the OHA through Junior Programming. Our junior program will greatly benefit from your significant contributions. We will be purchasing additional equipment and court time throughout the province for junior clinics, events and regular programming.  


Without support like yours, we truly would not be able to offer the caliber and quality of programs and events that the OHA strives to achieve.


Sincerely,

Jenine Wilson
OHA President

A Thank you from Ivan Burgos to the Ontario Handball Family

Dear Ontario handball Association,

   I am very proud to have represented my home province and country at the World Handball Championships held in Minneapolis Minnesota earlier this month, which I could not have attended without your help. Ontario is always so generous and supporting when it comes to in my development in Handball.
   These 2018 Worlds, I played in the 19 and under division for singles and doubles as well. My day to day training and practicing this summer helped me get to the finals in the singles, taking out the number one seed in the quarter finals and 4th seed in the semifinals. Two long and very tough quarter final and semifinals matches the day before finals took a lot out of me and I lost to a very experienced, powerful and well rounded player.
   Although I didn’t win the gold, the 2018 worlds was a success as I have made myself proud by winning the tough games I had and hope to have made my family and friends from the Ontario Handball association proud. Ontario has always supported me in one way or another and has helped me get to the level I am at today, competing at the international level.
   Thank you for the support Ontario Handball Association!
Ivan Burgos
