Thunderbirds / Tsunami Water Polo Skills Camp for U12 and U14 Players, January 5,6 & 7, 2018
Alberta Water Polo Association had booked pool time at Kinsmen for a camp, similar to the High Performance Camp being run in Calgary December 27-30, and then forgot they had the pool time until last week. (Lucky for us.)
Thunderbirds and Tsunami have decided to partner up to provide an opportunity for U12 and U14 players to get together and start the New Year with a Water Polo Skills Camp. The invitation is being extended to players from the Spruce Grove Polo Bears as well as the Edmonton Capitals.
The camp will be lead by coaches Sergio Gonzalez and Tarilyn McAuley, and will focus on individual skills and give athletes the opportunity to meet players from different clubs in the Edmonton area.
Whether you have played water polo for years or just started this season, this camp is perfect for you!
Tim will be helping out on Friday and Sunday, and Tsunami will have 3 of their NCL players helping out with the camp as well.
For those members not registering for the camp, there will be regular workouts at Terwilleger on Saturday, January 6th.
