Week two of the Afghanistan Water Polo (AWP) 2015 Training Camp was packed with more daily practices, off-site conditioning, and media appearances.
As Scott Caruso, AWP Director of International Relations, prepared to leave after two weeks working with the team and meeting with local media, Jeremy Piasecki, AWP Executive Director and Head Coach, arrived in Kabul and joined Scott and Bill Richardson, Assistant Coach. Together they met with Afghanistan's President of the General Directorate of Physical Education and Sport and prepared for the next two weeks of Training Camp.
After another day training outside at the Qargha Reservoir, the athletes enjoyed some time away from practice.
