MINI NDPL team won bronze medal
Congratulations to our mini NDPL team for their bronze medal win at the mini National Development Premier League finals held in Calgary on June 7-8, 2014.
Way to go boys! We are so proud of you!
I’ll take this opportunity to pass a message from our parent who was watching the finals.
My daughter and I attended the finals in Calgary and watched the Tsunami’s play. During the last game, I witnessed some great things from all players. Beyond the skill, fitness, and endurance it takes to be a water polo player (and coach), I also observed the kids thinking in action, anticipating, and passing to each other. Then towards the end, I watched the group of 5, who had to take shots on goal, in front of their team mates and audience. They were very supportive of each other. Cheered for their goalie, cheered for the players who scored. From a distance, I then seen high fives and pats on the back, for those who came close to scoring, but missed.
This is what I hoped for when we signed our son up for a team sport like water polo. A team who plays together well and in the end, try to do their best, have fun and are proud of the sport, themselves, and their team! So, thank you to the kids, the families who have raised such great kids, and to our coach, who is obviously doing something right!!
