Tronno Triggerfish Training Report 21/12/12

Last training report for 2012!!

I am so so glad I payed the $899.00 to attend JA.N’s (Just Act Naturally) Emmy Award Winning Speech course… although not an Emmy, the award for ‘Perky Pom Pom’ is right up there… Thanks to JAN and the course I was prepared for my walk up to receive my award…

JAN- acceptance

Then the actual acceptance of the award… Remember ‘out of the bottle receive the award’

JAN- Out of the bottle receive the award

and the most important part… my acceptance speech!

JAN- crying

2012 has been a big year in the International Gay Waterpolo League, with London Orca and the Toronto Triggerfish cementing their alliance as comrades in and out of the water… this bond has further been strengthened with London Orca sharing their booking number for accommodation with Toronto for the Outgames in Antwerp 2013… BRING IT! Bring it on, in any way, shape or form! In and out of the water! 😛

Although I miss my water polo birth mothers in London a lot, my new adopted family has been nothing short of welcoming, warm, friendly and shamazing!!!!… Everyone here has made me feel part of the team and I only look forward to the new year and what it will bring!!… but enough sap! With the world obviously not ending last night there was time for the last training of 2012 at U of T to occur…

Yes… so not quite enough people to have an HOUR of scrimmage but none the less! Apple Sauce (Applause) must be given to all who attended on this wintery flurrying night!!!…

A few swimming drills to warm up and then it was into some partner work for the battle of the best!! Who would be the fastest pair to win a three armed freestyle race followed by 25m of leap frogging?… none other than Rockin’ Rob and Mighty Ming!! WOOHOO!!…

Then it was onto some shooting drills where the focus was still on creating space through sliding… By the time the hour was up it was pretty clear that everyone had mastered the art of sliding… guess if you didn’t turn up you’re gonna be behind the 8 ball in 2013! :P…

And so that brings the training year of 2012 to a close!… Plenty to look forward to in the 2013 with some big competitions needing some victors!!… I encourage everyone to set a new years resolution to come BACK to training!! Plenty of lovely faces have been missing these last few months… lets all try and encourage each other to get back in the water come the new year… Find a training buddy and make sure you both egg each other on!! ‘If you go I’ll goooooo’…

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!!
