Lift Up Kids was developed in 2016 to promote one wall handball (wall ball) with Title 1 elementary school children in Austin Texas.
We joined forces with the University of Texas Neighborhood Longhorn Program to coach after-school wall ball with elementary school children from 34 inner city Austin schools.
Select UT Kinesiology students are certified as Level One coaches by the U.S. Handball Assn. and travel to the schools once/week for 8 weeks.
The program offers a UT campus field trip each semester that includes a tour of the Jester Dorm facilities and a game of wall ball on a professional court with each of the participating campuses during a UT handball tournament.
