After 18 months break Regional training re-commenced on Saturday 26th June with over 40 athletes taking part.
The evening started with an introduction from the coaching team to the players and parents. We were treated with a break in the rain to be able to deliver this outside.
The Regional coaches decided to invite the youngest athletes born 2007-2010 and for many of them this would have been their first Regional training session.
The evening was full of fun matches and an opportunity for the young athletes to show their skill and potential to the Regional coaches. The coaches were not disappointed by the standard of the athletes who came from a wide range of clubs across the South East.
Due to current Covid restrictions, we were unable to invite parents in to watch and support their children. It was great to see fellow athletes supporting each other that they had just met.
Thanks goes to all the volunteers attending to make this session possible. A special thanks goes to Paul Metcalfe for travelling from Milton Keynes to be one of the keys refs for the evening.
Further Regional Water Polo training sessions will be communicated by the coaching team in the coming weeks.
