This program consisted of four different aquatic activities for the students to be exposed to different ways to enjoy water sports and leisure. The students loved every moment of the program and were able to experience playing water polo and learn the basics of diving, water safety and new games to play with friends in the pool. They also happened to be at Talisman Centre at the same time as the Mens National Water Polo team was practicing as well as observing Dive Calgary team members practicing off of the 10 metre tower. I was thoroughly impressed myself, as were the students.
It is my hope that the students now have an idea of the many ways that we can use water as a fun and athletic way to move our bodies.
