Bertrand announces men's roster for Pan Games Qualifying
August 29, 2018
Canadian Men's National Head Coach Alexis Bertrand has named the roster for the 2019 Pan American Games qualification series versus the United States. They begin their quest this Sunday September 2nd at 6pm EST in Auburn, Alabama with the final match taking place at Claude-Robillard Sports Complex in Montreal on Wednesday September 5th at 7pm EST. The winner is determined by total aggreggate goals over the two game series.
The men are coming off their best performance in over a decade with a 5th place finish at the Pan American Handball Championship, a tournament they qualified for after a hard fought 33-31 victory against the Americans in their previous encounter in April.
