How long have you been a Sport Partner at Repsol Sport Centre? 
Caltaf was one of the first Clubs to become a Sport Partner.

Why do you enjoy training at Repsol Sport Centre? 
Repsol understands high performance training and provides every resource for athletes to achieve their goals.

Do you have any comments about our quality of service and equipment? 
When our high performance throws group needed a better indoor throws area, Repsol stepped up and with our Caltaf coaches created an area that has elevated our able-bodied and para-throws programs.  This area has resulted in better preparation for these athletes and has kick started our World Championships and 2020 Olympic campaign.

Can you share a success story? 
The throws group received 13 medals at Nationals Track and Field Championships!!! 


Sport Partner Rising Stars

Calgary Seawolves Water Polo

Play Partner  


   

Keegan Wong
Age 10
Grade 5
Club:  Calgary Seawolves Water Polo Club
Team:  U12 (Atom) boys

This is Keegan’s second year playing water polo. He tried water polo last year because he thought it was going to be fun and improve his swimming.  It gave him an opportunity to play in a team sport and learn new skills.  His parents chose the Calgary Seawolves Water Polo Club because it came highly recommended from their friends who were in the club. Before that, they had never heard of a water polo club in Calgary! Water polo has really strengthened Keegan’s swimming skills and given his parents a sense of security when he is around the water. They feel he has more independence in the water as they no longer have to worry about a life jacket and are more confident with his swimming abilities. Last summer, he was able to tread water longer than his non-water polo friends! He really enjoys playing water polo and his parents never have problems motivating him to go to practice.

 

   

Kristina Papazyan- “KP”
Age 12
Grade 7
Club: Calgary Seawolves Water Polo Club
Team: U14 (Bantam) Girls

Kristina started playing water polo when she was 9.  She discovered the sport through a summer program offered at Repsol Sport Centre.  She fell in love with the sport and joined the Calgary Seawolves Water Polo Club that fall.  KP’s mom states “When we joined the club, we felt really welcomed and encouraged to try this sport. It was a great balance of practice times and a challenging experience for new athletes within a very positive club environment”.

She loves playing a contact sport.  This year, as a first year U14 athlete, Kristina is really enjoying playing on this team and with the same girls she started with 3 years ago. There is a great environment on the team and her coaches are easy to talk to and very supportive.  She is also learning from the older U16 athletes that share practice time with her team.
