The temperature averaged around 105 degrees most of the week, but the players managed through. It was challenging with most players playing multiple divisions with multiple matches via the Olympic style.

There were almost 200 players representing 26 states aged 6 – 19 competing in the Olympic format draws over 5 days. There were 65 players from California/Nevada!!!!!! Texas had the second most number of players with 36. It was the largest draw a Junior Olympics has seen in many years.

Many champions were crowned and the complete results can be found at:

NorCal Junior Champs Results


On January 24th 2015, 54 Junior players gathered in Stockton for the Northern California Junior Championships. This was run by John Ellis and his 209 crew. It was a long day of play with all divisions either round robin or pool play. Play started at 8AM and kept the courts busy until well into the evening. There were over 20 new USAR member players!

The younger divisions were very full which looks good for the next few years as they play in the 10’s, 12’s etc. As always, the players were good sports. There were very few injuries and the crying was at a minimum (mostly the parents!)..

A great event and a good preparation for the Junior Nationals which will be held at the same club in June.

2015 California-Nevada State Junior Racquetball Championships (Southern California)


(Cody Elkins and Dane Elkins, Feb 27 2015)  The Southern California Junior State Championships were held on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at the Oakridge Athletic Club with four courts. The tournament kicked off at 8:00 a.m. with 23 players battling for the co-state title designation.

The tournament hosted a range of divisions from the exciting 6 and under multi-bounce to the faster paced 10 and under 2-bounce format. And the event also featured a competitive 18 and under singles divisions plus a combined doubles junior division.

Along with intense match play, the hospitality of the entire tournament extended to all players and their supporters.

As to making all of this happen, the participants in the tournament would like to thank Debbie Tisinger Moore and Randy Lam for orchestrating the entire event along with Brian Dixon- head of the CNRA junior committee. The event raises money to send California juniors to other major Junior events and is our biggest fundraiser!

"A special congratulations goes out to Dane "Bryan" Elkins who won the boys 18's playing left handed (he broke his right playing wrist just 5 weeks before) and taking second in the boys 16's after winning his group and beating USA team member Tommy Andraos in a close battle in the prelims. However, Tommy showed why he made the USA junior team in 2013 with a thrilling victory in the finals 11-1 against a tired Dane." (quote from Cody Elkins)

So who were crowned Junior state Co-champions: Here is the list of all of the talented winners:

Division Winner
Boy's multi-bounce 6 singles Kaleb Furman
Boy's multi-bounce 8 singles Advait Kartik
Boy's double-bounce singles 10 Derek Parillo
Boy's 10's singles Cody Elkins
Boy's 12 singles Iain Dunn
Boy's 14 singles Ivan Hernandez
Boy's 16 singles Tommy Andraos
Boy's18 singles Bryan "Dane the Lefty" Elkins
Junior All Doubles Joshua Cohen/Ivan Hernandez
Girl's multi-bounce singles 6 and 8's and girls double bounce Rylee Carrillo
Girl's 12 singles Camilla Gomez
Girl's 18 singles Atossa Rejaie

It is an honor playing this great state championships event and we wish everyone much future success at Jr. Olympics where California last year captured the title for most points helped in part from our competition in state!

In the boys 6 and under multibounce, Kaleb Furman got first place. In boys 8 and under singles multi-bounce and Advait Kartik got first place. In boys/girls singles multi-bounce 6-8 and under, Advait Kartik captured first place.

Support CNRA JRs to Jr Nationals in Denver

(June 5, 2014) Hi Racquetballers,
2014_jrs_fundme The Junior National Racquetball Championships will be held in Denver June 25-29. The California Nevada Racquetball Association always tries to support Juniors attending this event.

If we reach out goal, we may be able to look at doing 1 or 2 special requests for players who may not be able to go otherwise…

Any little bit helps and please feel free to share this with your Racquetball friends via email (just forward this along) or social media (Share link on Face book etc..)

Helping California/Nevada Juniors attend the Nationals in Denver

(May 14, 2014) The Junior National Racquetball Championships will be held in Denver June 25-29th.. The California Nevada Racquetball Association (CNRA) board annually looks to assist with California/Nevada Juniors attending the Nationals. Usually enough to offset entry fees. This year we would like to see if we can assist a little more and are looking to the Racquetball community to help out.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up for this purpose. A goal of $6,000 has been set and I hope if we can get the information out there we can reach this goal. Attaining this goal, may allow us to do 1 or 2 special needs assistance as well as the group as a whole..

The Link is:
