Polo Club played in our first championship hosted by the Cempaka School Club
Water Polo Championship last weekend.
This is the 2nd time CSC hosted the
U-21 Championship and had seen players grow to be stronger with more in depth
knowledge about the game. This is also the first time new FINA rules are
applied into a club level championship.
polo players were one of the youngest team played in this championship. The
team played three matches in Group A against Cempaka B, KL- A and Sri KL.
spent the extra 30 minutes in the pool during break time to train with the
national players. The biggest return for the team in this championship is the
learning experiences gained with the more mature players.
Some of the
insights from our team and players:
“I had fun at
the Water Polo tournament. The other teams were good
sports men and during our friendly match they were very nice and the advice
that they gave us helped us in our final game of the tournament.” – Connor
“The matches played on Saturday were good experience from our team. We
learned that we need to put in more hours of training and take the sport more
seriously.”- Armaan Latif, 10R
“It was a good experience to us all, helped us work as a team and work
tactfully considering we only managed to train three times. We did relatively
good considering we were against people older than us and people who train
every day and play for a state.”- Will Bell, 9T
“We learnt that we could work on the team communication and coordination.
We learnt that one of our biggest strengths is our speed.” – Aaryaman Desai,
The game was very challenging. But, it was also fun. - Jon Jansen, 9R
It was very challenging as the opposing teams had a significant age
advantage. However it didn’t stop us from pushing ourselves and having as much
fun as we possibly could.
