Two words to describe the first training session of the Tronno Triggerfish for 2013… Take it away Nicole Scherzinger!!
As the snow melted away, so hopefully does our holiday spare tyres which we have unfortunately acquired over the festive period. There are no excuses now… no longer can you say ‘oh I’ll just have those 10 left over mini cupcakes because its Christmas and they’re red and decorated with green edible ornaments’… or ‘ITS CHRISTMAS! What is another whole wheel of brie really gonna do to my figure’??…
This is the time of year when the SMACK GETS LAID DOWN!!! When boys become MEN… twinks become POLAR BEARS… and women become… well, women become… LESBIANS!!…
The pool deck was a buzz… like bees… being beeeeee-zay!… or like a drag queen being busy!
20 Triggerfish turned up to the pool!… 20! Note that number International Gay Water polo League… that’s 20 players on a Friday night in the middle of a Canadian Winter at 10pm!!! the Tronno Triggerfish are preparing for this season of Gay Waterpolo and we’re gonna bring it… Just like Torrance Shipman!!!!
Hugs all round from everyone and then it was into the water for the warm up!
Coach Christi was in fine form tonight, putting the team through their paces and drilling in the importance of movement and creating space through sliding!
20 minutes of scrimmage to make sure everyone was dead tired and then it was home time!… It seems like the overall consensus based on people’s facebook statuses is that they’re all happy to be back in the water!
A few fun facts about tonight’s training
– 8 months from today will be the water polo semi-finals of the OutGames in Antwerp
– There are only <60 training sessions left till OutGames
– 20 is half of 40
– 10pm to 2am is the optimal time to go to bed
Combined training on Sunday at 6:00pm! As of next week I will implementing a new attendance system which we used in London where I will be taking down the names of those who come to training and posting a percentage attendance list!… At the end of each month kudos will be given to the Triggerfish with the attendance closest to 100%!!! :D… YAY FOR MOTIVATIONAL/COMPETITIVE LISTS!!
