Hello Parents & Players,
Boys water polo season is right around the corner and I am excited to get started. If you plan on being apart of the program this Fall 2019 season you will need to read over all the information below. If you know someone interested in joining please let me know or send them this email.
All Players must be cleared through the school before they get into the pool. That means the physicals and all other paper work required must be turned into the front desk or online.(Not to me) As of right now our season start date will be Monday August 5th.
Please see the message below about our new website.
Classical Academy will be switching our athletics website from playasone.org to caimansports.com within the next few weeks. The best part of the transition is that caiman sports.com has an app called Caiman Sports that will better connect parents, athletes, friends, and families to sports at CAHS. Please download the free app on the android or apple stores and make sure to star each of the sports you are interested in. By clicking the star icon in each sport you will receive notifications of practice times, schedules changes, LIVE SCORE UPDATES, etc. Also, please share this app with friends and family that like to keep up to date with sports at CAHS. The website will be linked to journalism, yearbook, and caiman tv students who will help upload content to better highlight each sport. One more great thing...during each season, coaches will be allowing selected parents and students to become content contributors to the app. They will be able to upload pictures, videos, and even do the live scoring of the games. Our hope is that this website and app makes people feel more connected to each sport and that communication becomes easier for everyone as a result."
-Once the practice & game schedule is finalized i will put it on the app when we are a little closer to the season. For now please see the info below about our practice & game schedule for this upcoming season.
Practice Schedule- All Players-
First Practice- August 5th 7-9pm @ Washington.
Monday 8/5- Thursday 8/9- Practice 7-9pm @ Washington Park Pool ( 4 days of practice)
The following week of Aug 12th i plan on switching to morning practice. The start time will be either 7am or 9am and we will practice for 2 hours. I plan to keep doing morning practices until school starts. If the City is still using the pool for another week then we will continue night practices for another week. I will not know the official practice schedule until i meet with the city and finalize our schedule. I expect that to happen in early July.
Once school starts we will practice in the afternoons 2:15-5pm @ Washington Park Pool. If you have a 4th period then practice for those players will start at 3:15pm or as soon as you can get there. We will practice every Monday-Friday that we do not have a game. Towards the end of the season maybe we will drop a few Friday practices but for the most part we will practice everyday during the week.
Summer Beach Day- Wednesday July 10th- All Players- 10am-1pm. We will play games and do a beach workout the first hour and a half and then we will hang out and eat lunch together. Just something fun so we can get together once as a group before the season starts. We will have this at Oceanside harbor beach. I will send out more info when it gets a little closer.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the program. I will continue to send out more info as we get through summer.
