Sélestat Alsace Handball



Sélestat Alsace Handball (SAHB) was created in 1967 and took no time at all to reach the top. They won their first French Championship in 1979, were admitted into the National Division 2 in 1984, Division 1B in 1985, and the elite Ligue Nationale de Handball (LNH) in 1990. SAHB spent over 18 years in this top division, in which they were French Cup finalists in 1995. Now, after dropping to Division 2 at the end of the 2008–2009 season, Sélestat has returned to glory. The 2010–2011 season saw them win first place in the D2 Pro ranking and the 2011–2012 season will see their return to Division 1. SAHB is also considered a school of champions, having trained many of France’s top players, including Olympic Champion Thierry Omeyer.
