Updated December 6th, 2019
Water Polo Saskatchewan has the pleasure of announcing the long list for our 14U International Training Camp in Santa Barbara, California from May 12-19th, 2020. The following athletes have made the pre-selected team roster as of December 6th, 2019.
The final roster selection of 12 athletes per team will be decided and communicated by March 3rd, 2020. Once selection has been made for the top 12 athletes, the final payment deadline of $1,100.00 will be March 10th, 2020. Non selected athletes will receive the refund of the $500 deposit shortly after this date.
After finalizing the bookings for the flights, accommodation, and local transportation, WPS has calculated the total cost for the training camp to California will be $1,600.00. This is including the previous $500.00 deposit and the final payment of $1,100.00. We do our very best to ensure we provide the maximum amount of training value for the cost of this international trip. We will also do our best to research possible extra activities for the athletes while we are in Santa Barbara, such as a surf camp. Detailed information will be sent to the families of selected athletes after the final roster is announced.
The coaching staff for this International Training camp will be Ethan D'Souza and Andrew Muir with the men's team, and myself, Rachel Krieger and Alexandra Kapila with the women's team. Andrew Muir is joining Team Sask as a former Assistant Coach for the Senior Canadian Men's National team and the former Head Coach for the Junior Canadian Men's National team. Alexandra Kapila is returning to Team Sask as a former athlete of the program who competed for the Youth, Junior and University Canadian Women's National teams, and attended Long Beach State University on a four year scholarship for collegiate water polo. Water Polo Saskatchewan is looking forward to adding these two to the coaching staff to provide support to our provincial athletes.
WPS has made a training trip to California a tradition in our program. The first training trip down south was in 2011 and there have been 8 trips to various locations throughout the state.
