NEW PLAYERS

Author: JLA, 06/06/17

NEW PLAYERS ALWAYS WELCOME

If you are interested in playing the sport of the first time then all you need is a costume, some water and lots of energy!

Come along to any of the training sessions (Except Fridays) ask for Kevin or Jon as we are usually here to meet and greet newbies.

The first few weeks are free until you decide you'd like to continue, then we complete the paperwork and join you in the ASA.

The first things you'll learn are egg beater leg kick, catching and throwing with one hand, swimming with your head up - so you can see the ball.

Then shooting, passing and tackling....

The more you attend - the better you'll get.  We provide the sessions and the coaching - it's up to your motivation to attend and improve. 

When we travel to away games we all go in a minibus to cement the team (and ensure we can all get there £5).  Tournaments are the same for U12/ U15.

We have mixed teams up to 16 years then we have to split into Male and Female teams in accordance with Sport England directives. 

Today (June 2017) we have 2 x U12 teams, 3 x U15, U16, Female, 3 x Male teams.  But the focus is on getting new players to try the sport and find it as interesting as we do.

Parents are always needed to keep score, help with pack-ups for away teams and team management. So if you want to get involved there's a small role which will be enjoyable and very useful to us. 

If you have any questions please email jon@northamptonwaterpolo.co.uk
