Inaugural Boys Premier League
(Nov 17, 2013) Barras Boys headed to Kawana Aquatic Centre on Sunday to compete in the Inaugural Boys Premier League, a Club carnival between Barras, Polo Bears and Sunshine Coast. Our U14's, U16's and U18's had a great day of polo fun, playing 2-3 games each against our rival Club friends. Big thanks go to Sunny Coast for hosting such a fun day, they supplied referees and table officials and allowed us to have a wonderful day that celebrates this great sport of water polo. Thanks to our parents for getting the boys to the coast, our coaches for spending the day with their team and thanks to Simon Daley, QAS coach who provided mentoring and encouragement to our boys and our coaches. This is what our junior sport should be all about – development, mateship and community!
Update: U18 State Titles cancelled and replaced with one day express tournament - Dec 1st
Water Polo Queensland had been forced to cancel the official State Titles for a range of reasons and no alternate date was suitable to reschedule. Not wanting to miss an opportunity for our U18s to show their stuff, an one day, condensed, express tournament has been organised. This will allow all teams to play some games as well as allowing State selectors the opportunity to observe players before naming representative sides. More information about this one day tournament will be posted soon.
Club appoints Development Officer and launches other exciting measures
(Nov 9, 2013) A key priority for our club this year and the years ahead is the continued growth of our athletes, recruitment of new players to the club and on-going development of our club coaches. In an exciting move, and first of its kind in Queensland, the Barracudas have appointed American international player Cole Bitter (pictured left) as the 2013/14 Barracudas Development Officer. Cole will be playing a key role in coaching our junior teams, visiting local primary schools to drive participation and promotion of the sport and working with our coaching team to continue to drive excellence and top standards.
Cole is an elite international senior player who has competed professionally in the world's toughest European leagues as well as here in Australia. For the last four years he has played in Hungary and Germany. Cole will also be a key member our Barracudas National League men's team this season. Cole was a member of the Barracudas 2009 NWPL men's side so is familiar to many in our club already. The 6'-4" powerhouse centre back arrived this week and was pleased to get straight into coaching our junior teams at the Saturday competition and into hard pre-season training with the National League.
Another exciting development to make the most of the strength of our senior elite players within the club, our Barracudas National League players will be acting as mentors to our junior teams and coaches. In particular our senior men will be joining our junior teams for games on Saturdays to assist both coaches and players and pass on vital knowledge and skills. Keep a look out for our elite men as well as Cole around the pool. All these guys are playing a big part in keeping our club at the top of the game.
