An Update from Kabul


Training Trip Is Underway

After months of preparation, Afghanistan Water Polo 2015 Training Camp is underway! 

Scott Caruso, Director of International Operations, and Bill Richardson, Assistant Coach, are currently in Kabul training the Afghanistan National Water Polo Team and local athletes. They have been busy leading daily practices, mentoring the athletes and support staff, and promoting the team through local media.

Asian Water Polo Club Championships

When Scott and Bill arrived in Kabul to kick off the 2015 Training Camp, the National Water Polo Team had just returned from competing in the 10th Asian Water Polo Club Championships in Tehran, Iran, in December.
