Since everyone thinks Water Polo is the stupidest sport ever created, me included, nobody plays on the team, which leads to no money for the team, which means that Water Polo is not even acknowledged as a real sport, but a “club sport”. My mother and father (being the annoying people they have always been) one day asked themselves; “how can we…

One of the toughest skills for me in water polo is ironically also one of the simplest: releasing for the ball. Releasing for the ball basically just means getting open for someone else to pass to you, but whenever there is someone guarding me, I panic. One day at practice my coach’s patience was waning thin.
