Program Highlights

The highlight of the NHAC handball program each year is our NYAC/Burt Kossoff Invitational Tournament. This event attracts players from all over the World.

Never to be overlooked are our world champion players, along with USHA and NYAC Hall of Fame member Carl Obert, who can be found every Saturday morning on the 21st floor teaching handball to the kids of the Saturday Morning Program, our future champions.

Practice

The NYAC handball team team practices every Tuesday and Thursday from 5pm to 8pm. All Club members are encouraged to join us on the 21st floor, meet the players and get involved in "the perfect game".

Free lessons and coaching are offered by Danielle Daskalakis, one of our up and coming stars.
