Re: ODP Regional

ODP in its present form does not make the player and is not of any importance to many great players. ODP organizers can probably contribute more to the sport by being very honest to players about what it is and why it is important to them. Maybe once ODP gets past that, they can improve what they ha...

Re: NCS Predictions 2014

You overate Abramson and Murphy. You are saying they are stronger duo on the 4-5 side than the two lefties at campo? The same lefties that are all league selection, who played the entire finals match.. give credit where it's due. At this level, being a great player is much more important than wheth...

Re: Lachance appointed head coach of Jesuit High School

sounds great for the central valley area and great for Lachance, but it will also be interesting to see what the impact is to the lamo-miramonte-Cal feeder funnel and NCS talent level.

Re: 2012 All- CIF

Considering division alignments, some coaches have to drive 2 hours on a weeknight, while others only 10 minutes. I met a couple of the coaches recently that are the topic here. They were very friendly, had a great team, and were pretty enthusiastic about the team and their players. The team also d...

Re: 2012 All- CIF

So complain tonight, tomorrow - move on. There’s bound to be some other controversy. So right wpopinion. Us parents will drive ourselves crazy trying to make or get satisfaction for any high school sport list. Way too many limitations. The good college coaches know exactly who the good players are ...

Re: 2012 All-NCS

Yikes - NCS so-slow-mo over there. We and every other district I can think of finished their season a couple weeks later than you guys and everyone already has their lists posted. Must have dedicated all your time to training for the senior game. ....just a jab :D

Re: Mercy Rules

Great stuff Doc, Russ, et al, I'm sure our local coach will put all these great ideas to work to make his team better. I'm sure others have seen this too, to make them think more. There are already a couple local coaches that do some of these things, but they all need to do it for the health of the ...

Re: Mercy Rules

instead of humilitating their oppononents, my kid and teammates coached their opponent on the field through the game and made it more fun for them. That's a great step in the right direction polomaman. Your child is very lucky and I suspect this is a club team, but would be very happy to hear if th...

Re: Mercy Rules

It seems that the predominant answer for this blog and similar related blogs is to build interest in clubs local to the weaker HS programs. I'm not sure how you're going to get the interest when the stronger teams come in and continuously humiliate the weaker teams. I don't want to hear about how it...

Mercy Rules

Just wanted to gauge the mentality of water polo when it comes to mercy rules. Those would be rules that shorten a game based on the gap in score between two teams. Baseball limits the gap in score to 10 after the 5th inning for example. In water polo it seems they just run the clock. But is that en...

7. Drake
8. sacrificial lamb


Not sure why DLS would be be than SRV, LL, or Acalanes. For example I think Acalanes, LL, and SRV have beaten them and srv placed quite a bit higher in tournaments. Just my 2 cents.
