Following the awesome results of the Grand Finals 2 weeks ago, the Juniors celebrated their 2018 season and acknowledged the many people who made it so successful, and fun!
Congratulations to all of the team MVP’s and Coaches award recipients. Special mention to SL Association Division Best and Fairest winners, James Lantzke (U14A Boys), Andrew Barber (U16A Boys) and Taz Williams (U18A Boys) – outstanding!
We would like to pay tribute to those members of our Club who were awarded special Club awards in recognition of their efforts both in and out of the pool.
2018 JUNIOR POLO BEAR OF THE YEAR
This person is an all-rounder who represents our club with excellence, showing dedication and commitment to the Club. They give their best in the pool, when they train and play, and are always willing to help around the Club. With a positive attitude they are a great example for younger players to look up to.
The 2018 winner was nominated for her fantastic work with coaching Friday night FlippaBall teams and Saturday morning DSC teams. She happily assists whenever called upon. She always has a positive manner and attitude and is extremely polite. Her sister won it last year. What a family!
Congratulations to UWA City Beach Water Polo Club’s Best Junior Club Member for 2018, Sami Rasmussen.
2018 SENIOR POLO BEAR OF THE YEAR
The Senior Award this year went to a person who has worked tirelessly to help out our club. She has managed no less than 5 Under 14 teams for the past 3 seasons and has just taken 40 14U boys and crew to the National Club Champs in Canberra. She works, she runs a busy house, she keeps Damo in line, and she gives and gives and gives to our Junior program.
