Last weekend, KCAC member Matt Campion and his family lost their father James Campion. Jim was a larger than life personality that we are so fortunate to see through his son Matt. The Campions are a great family, please say a prayer for their loss.

If you haven’t already heard from your captain, you should be soon. If you are wondering what team you are on, you can just search the site for your name or browse through the 2017 rosters in the league section of the site. Everything has been updated for the new season except for the extended schedule, which will be updated later this week. Please let me know if you are wanting to play in league but haven’t heard from your captain yet. My email is my first name dot my last name at gmail dot com.
David Chapman unexpectedly passed away last night at the age of 42. One of our greatest champions, and the face of our sport for the last 25 years, his loss is tremendous. Among being one of the most dominant handball players of all time, he was also a KCAC Quirk and a Handballesta champion, and counted some KCAC members as close friends. The KCAC’s hearts are with our St. Louis Handball family in dealing with this tragic loss.
Join us at the Athletic Club Wednesday night at 6:30pm as we do our annual League Draft. Find out how much, or how little you are valued among your handball peers. The live draft board will be displayed on the big screen TV with a scroll of the picks for every round. We will have a quick rules and budget review then we will jump right into the draft. Come on down and grab some grub and maybe a beer as we get excited for the next big season.
