Athlete of the Month - February 2012 Christian Eckmann - South Coast Aquatics

I wanted to take the time to write you about my son Christian Eckmann. He has been playing water polo now for 2.5 years. This sport has brought him so much joy, friendships, and athleticism. Christian is an Honor student at his Jr High in all Honor class, he is the true student athlete. Last year his 12 year old team made it to the Junior Olympics placing 11th place. This experience was great for him and his team. He was one of the leaders of the team, always playing hard and helping to bring in new players to the team. This year he has moved to our 14 and under team and was placed on the "A" team and is starting. The older players have accepted him due to his strong work ethic and leadership. He has also attended the Colorado Holiday Camp this year with ODP. This experience was incredible for him to participate in this camp. The learning experience was well worth the trip. Christian is also in leadership at school and is the school treasurer. Christian has a strong work ethic, is very coachable, and plans to take his leadership skills and academic achievements and attend a D1 school.
