    Viking Water Polo GroupMe!!!

    This year we will using GroupMe to foster communications between athletes, parents and coaches.  This has worked well for other sports clubs and should help us more quickly disseminate important information on game days and individual teams.  We will continue to leverage official emails from TeamTopia but please use the link below to join the GroupMe:

    North Atlanta Water Polo Club

    You may recall in our parent meeting last year we discussed the plan to integrate our Viking Water Polo program with the larger North Atlanta Water Polo Club that focuses on year round WP and USAWP tournaments/programs.  The first step in that plan starts with this spring season.  At a high-level here are somethings that will see this spring:

    • More Players and Practices opportunities -   Viking and NA athletes will have the option to practice at Dynamo during our normal practice time AND any NA practices that take place at West Gwinnett Aquatic Center.  More information on their practices will be coming soon.  No extra fees.  
    • Coaching - Practices at Dynamo will still be run by Bella and Max but will be joined by NA coaches to help provide more small group or 1:1 coaching opportunities.  THIS IS HUGE!  We now have access a broader coaching staff that will help our kids and also allow all coaches to learn and grow!  
    • Tournament Opportunities - Some Viking athletes already take part in year-round tournaments with Dynamo or NA.  There are huge growth opportunities even playing just one or two travel tournaments a year.  We want to provide more access to all Viking players to these opportunities.  

    We plan to share more information about all of this in our Parent Meeting on March 6th.  

    We can't wait to see everyone at the pool.
