Reminder Dorset Water Polo Development Day Saturday 17 October 2009
Numbers are now up to 45 and we are hoping even more players can attend as St. Marys, Wareham and Weymouth & Portland have yet to confirm their numbers. Although not quite as many as last time, probably due to holding the event on a Saturday, it is still pretty good!
Please can Club contacts make a last minute push to remind players and let Fred Fowler (firstname.lastname@example.org) know.
Please also advise if there are additional players to those who have contacted us who wish to be considered for selection for the Dorset 18&U Boys or 14&U Mixed teams but are unable to make the trials.
There are several other players who have previously played for the teams who are eligible for selection who Fred has not heard from.
Fred added; "As you will appreciate we cannot select county teams by reputation alone and with competition increasing, I will need to hear from them if they wish to be considered for selection. Our intentions will be to choose a squad, play a couple of practice matches, and reduce the squad to a team of 13 with 2 reserves prior to the regional tournament.
"I am also encouraged that we several senior players have come forward to get involved with the county teams and will either be available on Saturday or hopefully for the practice matches in the lead up to the regional tournament. From the list of players I can see are likely to be in contention, and with some good coaching I think we should be able to move forward once again!"
