Under 16 Canoe Polo Tournament at Speke Pool 2nd February 2019
We had two teams enter the NW U16 league on Saturday. Our paddlers looked great in club Buoyancy Aids, helmets and face masks and polo boats. For many it was their first go at canoe polo but all did fantastically well. The novice team ended up playing so well together that they can came out on top in first place in the novice league. Playing with an extra small size 3 ball enabled our team to pass the ball accurately and move around the pitch. Ellie was our ace scorer and Adrian turned out to be a daemon keeper. Poppy volunteered to play for the scratch FOA C team and played extremely well.
In the more experienced “Development league” we have the makings of a great young side. The team passed well and created many opportunities to score. Dean played very well in goal and if we are able to shore up our defence a little in the zone the opposition would not get near the net. The team is equal first on points having won 3 of the 4 games but have a slightly worse goal difference.
We all look forward to the next tournament on 2nd March again at Speke Pool. If anyone is interested in joining in with the U16 we still have places. You should be confident in a small kayak with a spray deck and have experience of paddling at the docks. Our team is aged 10 -16 years of age. Click for more information….
