40 young players from 4 local clubs took part in todays U15 Junior Development tournament

on Sunday, 01 May 2022.

30th April 2022

Over 40 young players from 4 local clubs took part in todays U15 Junior Development tournament at Carnegie Leisure Centre, the first of 3 events supported by SASA East District.

Teams from Dunfermline Water Polo ClubMenzieshill Whitehall Swimming and Waterpolo ClubPortobello ASC - Water Polo Section and Warrender WaterPolo took part.

With 4 teams playing 3 half games each, the players got lots of time in the pool to develop their match skills. Plenty of goals, great saves and good team plays along with some great individual skills were all on display.

 

This was a development tournament - played in the spirit of the players learning the game. The ethos for the competition was about playing games more than winning and it was great to see so much effort and enthusiasm from all the players having great fun and a good learning experience.

In addition to the young players, many playing in their first tournament, it was great to see a balcony full of spectators along to support their teams generating a good atmosphere for these young players.

Our thanks to all the coaches, officials and poolside helpers who made this possible.
