Junior Spotlight Applications

by USA Racquetball

Beginning with this January issue of Serving Up the News, a monthly recurring feature will bring visibility to Junior players across the country. 


We invite coaches, junior program directors, state associations, indeed anyone who would like to recognize deserving Junior players who love racquetball, to send profiles and stories to us for inclusion in future newsletters.  


Thanks to Brian Ancheta, State President of the Oregon Racquetball Association, for kicking off this Junior Spotlight feature with an article in this issue about Brielle Fernando who competes for the Beaverton (Oregon) High School Racquetball Team.

So, are we talking about those players who may have started to make a name for themselves - perhaps a Junior National Champion who has already competed for the USA internationally? 


Yes, of course.


But we’re also looking for this monthly feature to recognize Junior players who are:


Working hard to develop their games and their fitness levels

Competing in tournaments and leagues

Encouraging friends to participate

Coaching younger players

Helping out with their high school teams

Planning to continue with racquetball in college

Volunteering at local events

Learning the rules and learning to referee matches

Aspiring to make the U.S. Junior Team

Enjoying racquetball for the fun and friendship it brings to their lives



The deadline for each issue is the first day of each month. 


Please send your articles/stories/profiles about Junior players to Photos are welcome -- please provide a caption and photo credit info, and kindly include the name and email address of the parent or guardian of the player you wish to recognize.


If you need some help in polishing up your submission, we’re happy to help!
