You know it’s the end of summer when pool sessions and canoe polo training start. We’ve been training for a few weeks now, with the A team preparing for their first series of division 1 matches at the weekend.
We started the evening with a warm up followed by some passing and possession drills. After a bit of rest, we played an extended game. The teams were pretty mixed so everyone had fun! I brought my mother along as official photographer and I think she enjoyed the experience, although I wasn’t impressed when she indicated she wanted me to demonstrate a roll… (oh the pressure!)
This year we are also going to have the Orkney B canoe polo team which I have volunteered to look after. I put out an appeal for players but so far only have 2!- Come on guys (AND GALS!), you know you want to!
Christina and I would really like to see a ladies team but as yet we don’t have enough woman players. We were really excited last night when a new woman joined in – maybe we’ll get 5 women yet!
In the meantime, good luck to the A team!
