We plan to hold practices this coming week at North Park on Mon, Wed and Saturday – all from 5pm to 7pm. Hoping that vacations are wrapping up for everyone so that we can get a full complement of players back in the water. I miss seeing everyone and look forward to having the kids together again this week. A few other things:
September 1st marks the start of our Fall Season. The highlight of the fall is the Pennsylvania Middle School League. We plan to host one of the tournaments, just like last year, and we will plan to travel out east to play in one or two events (definitely the championship though! Last year Tiger Water Polo won the State Middle School Championships. We’ll see if we can repeat. It will take lots of hard work and commitment this fall. In addition to the state league, we are working on a local middle school schedule of games. We have kids from Shaler and the City of Pgh interested. Hope that it will work out – the more we can do locally the better. Also this fall, we’ll plan to compete in a couple of Northeast Zone events, most likely at Navy.
Our fall practice and game schedule is not yet finalized as pool time commitments always come to us last minute. Once the schedule is assembled – we’ll plan a parents meeting and send a flyer so that you can do your planning
The 14 and Under group wants to wish a fond farewell and good luck to Gabe Gaspar, Dominic Moore, Kiean Ashtari and Nate Horan who are moving up to the high school program this fall as 9th graders. These guys have all been with us since the very beginning. We are happy for them, but are going to miss having them with us until their return later in the year.
We also want to wish a good luck and farewell to Mia Siclari, Laura Fox, Chloe Baierl, Abi Rubio and Caroline Bojarski who will also be moving up to the high school ranks. We are so proud of all of them and can’t wait to get them back after the high school season
Look forward to seeing everyone on Monday. Thanks.
