Dear Players and Parents:
The Carmel High Water Polo Program is still currently in transition as the District will be interviewing candidates for head coach for the 2017 season.
In the meanwhile I am currently still involved with Legacy Water Polo Club as a board member and am actively trying to prep the Carmel High program to transition well and not skip a beat when the new coach comes in. Part of that is making sure our boys are doing everything they can to improve during the offseason.
We are super excited to add Gary Figueroa to Legacy as "Aquatics Director". Gary is developing and overseeing the growth and development of our age group offerings, instruction as well as coach training.
It is very important that you work on your craft during the offseason. Your better believe your competition is!
We hope that you are swimming with the high school team this spring as swim speed and endurance is extremely important to improving as a water polo player.
We do however have many kids that play other sports in the spring instead of swimming and that is ok. If you do, please take advantage of Legacy's new "Sunday" afternoon practice option during the spring. It will be guided and controlled scrimmaging mainly and will be a great way to learn, improve, stay in shape and have fun, even if you're currently playing baseball, lacrosse, etc.
I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the programs that Legacy has to offer. Please follow this link, Sign up. Just do it :)
Junior Olympics and Summer Legacy are right around the corner.
Once again...If you want to be a great water polo player...If you want to help your team win...Then you MUST put work into improving OUTSIDE OF THE REGULAR SEASON! This league is too competitive to expect that you will be able to show up in August, not having played or swam since the previous season and expect to compete with Soquel, Santa Cruz, Salinas, etc.
Carmel High teams of the past that won championships in 2010, 2012, and 2014...They put in the work and committed. Champions are made in practice. Get plugged in with Legacy at www.legacypolo.org and put in the work.
