2015 Presidents Club meets, prioritizes Juniors.

The USHA Presidents Club met in Tucson during the annual Hall of Fame event for its second meeting to look back at its first year and forward to the coming year. In addition to the projects funded, some of the ideas (that didn't have a cost to them) brought up at the first meeting were acted upon as well. Those included a new webstore, a new iPhone App (thanks to Jeff Wall), better tracking of collegiate handball players, and hours of video posted to the USHA's and Keith Thode's Youtube channels (thanks to Keith).

The Club raised $36,000 for 2014 activities and anyone wanting the current rulebook in hard copy can thank the Presidents Club, along with the upgrades and updates at the home office. Also, juniors and their coaches got a boost at last year's National Junior Three-Wall in Boulder. This year's goal has been raised to $40,000 and the presidents invite you to join them in their good work. All members have a say in how the funds will be spent and membership is $1,000 minimum for the year.
