Andy Neff -- Coach of the Month!!!

Yesterday Andy Neff (Dynamo's Sprinter/Lefty Wing/Badass) was named S&R Sport Coach of the Month! http://www.usawaterpolo.org/genrel/102813aae.html

If you're reading this, you likely already know what an amazing all-around guy Andy is, so this should not be a shocker... at all. In addition to being a core member of the Atlanta Dynamo team, Andy donates an enormous amount of his time and energy to coaching Water Polo at Lakeside High School (4 teams!) and the Atlanta Girls Junior Olympic team.

So, thanks goes to Andy! His contribution to Southeast Water Polo is very much felt!!!

Water Polo Sundays

On Sunday we returned to the much-loved tradition of Water Polo Sundays. Once a month, we invite regional college and masters teams for a series of round robin scrimmages.  It should be noted that this is, indeed, one of the greatest forms of free Water Polo ever concocted.  Everyone who shows up knows the deal and is ready to play...
 
 
For the first Water Polo Sunday of 2013/14, Dynamo welcomed players from Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Trout Water Polo. After dividing into three teams we rotated through several hard-fought single-period matches over two hours. The teams who rotated out helped with referee duties, and also participated in several teaching opportunities. Several college players were seen working with seasoned Dynamo veterans to further develop their skills and abilities. The morning proved to be a fun and educational scrimmage experience, and was an example of a event that helps bring the southeast water polo community even closer together.
 
Talk to your team leads.  If you’re interested in participating in Dynamo Water Polo Sundays, we’re hosting our next one October 20th. Please contact Neal Laxpati (nlaxpat.archive at gmail dot com) for more information and to register.
