sports, by working hard, having good attendance and really listening to the coaches. Additionally, watching water games and skills videos online can be very helpful.
What if I have to miss a practice or tournament?
We all understand that life intrudes on water polo sometimes and that homework and family occasionally prevent attendance at practice! If you need to miss a tournament, let the coach know immediately so rosters can be adjusted. You will get as much out of the club as you put in. If you will be missing a practice, just let the coach know before or after.
What happens if there is a scheduling change?
