Congratulations to The Hawks for their amazing performance this past weekend! We hope you all enjoyed the tournament and the pizza. Coach Rodrigo and Coach Fraser were away at a water polo tournament and a swim meet, respectively. We have to come up with a way of cloning ourselves.
The action continues this weekend as we head to Etobicoke once again with two 11U teams. The coaches are looking forward to the weekend and to seeing our athletes in action. Some of you have already had a taste of what is involved in a water polo tournament and we’re counting on you to spread the good word on what needs to be done to have a successful time to those athletes who may be there for the first time.
The biggest thing to remember is not to be late. You must be on deck 1HR before your next game. And if you’re not 5 minutes early, you’re late.
We have the speed, the skills and the fans! Let’s get out there and do our best!
This week we are continuing to focus on our underwater dolphin kick and our breathing. Knowing when and how to breathe is essential. We must get rid of all of our air under the water. There is no time to breathe out and then in again when we lift our heads out of the water.
We have two tentative dates for swim meets with other clubs. They are April 29th and May 7. As soon as we know, you’ll know. But please keep those dates open for now.
Congrats to Gabe and Marko for winning balls of scone dough last week.
This week’s challenge is about the great Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku.
