Kigoos Water Polo Program

August 27th, 2014 | Posted by kigooswm in Registration | water polo - (Comments Off on Kigoos Water Polo Program)
The Richmond Kigoos are committed to re-starting a water polo program.  This will include a winter Tsunami program that will run after schools twice a week at Watermania.
We know for many of our swimmers water polo is a brand new sport and before swimmers have to make a commitment for Tsunami Water Polo we want to offer 4 free Saturday training sessions.
Our current thinking is to try to run a U11 and U13 program next summer and align our winter programs to prepare for this.
September Water Polo Sessions:
For U11 players (those born in 2004, 2005 and 2006) it will be from 2 – 3 pm
For U13 Players (those born in 2002 and 2003) it will be from 3 – 4 pm
Note – water polo uses December 31st as the age cut-off like school and does not use the summer swimming age groups.
Also – these sessions in September are only open to current Kigoos’ swimmers.
While these sessions are free, we need to have pre-registration.
The September sessions are at Steveston Pool on the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th.
All sessions will be led by Coach Andre and other water polo coaches.
Please register for the September water polo program HERE.
Please register no later than September 3rd – we want to be sure we have sufficient interest to run the program.
If you would like to register and you are too young or too old for these sessions please complete the form anyway so we can see what other interest we have and depending on numbers may also be able to include you in the sessions.
More information on the Tsuami program will follow shortly.
