Women
Main achievements
The USA Women’s Team is probably the youngest program to participate in the Worlds Championships. It recently competed, for the first time since 2012, in the Pan American Championships where it played well against seasoned and very experienced teams. Its biggest achievement is reaching such a high level competition after less than two years as an official Beach Handball program in the United States. They are honored to have the chance to play against the best in the world.

Expectations regarding World Championship
Head Coach Juliano de Oliveira says -- My expectations are is to win at least 2 games in the group stage and go as far as we can in the Second stage. I will be extremely happy if we could bring a medal back to the United States. We have a very solid team and we are playing to win.  I expect this to also be a growing experience for all the athletes and staff, an opportunity for everyone to bring back something new to the beaches of the US.
