Monthly Awards

Athlete Of The Month - August 2011 Cal Meyer - United Water Polo Club

I would like to nominate my son Cal Meyer for the Athlete Of The Month.

Cal Meyer, age 10, and his United Water Polo Club just won the gold medal in the 10u Division at the 2011 Junior Olympics. Cal, who plays goalie for United, was selected Tournament MVP. Cal's team had to go though 3 straight shootouts in order to make the gold medal game. Cal's United Water Polo Club also recently won the 2011 United States Club Water Polo Championships, which he also was selected as the Tournament MVP.

During 2011, Cal's United team also won the KAP7 International Tournament, Turbo Orange County Cup, Cal Cup, and San Diego Cup, which Cal was named to the All-Tournament team.

All this is amazing since Cal just started playing water polo a year ago. Last fall Cal went to United's water polo practice with teammate, Reilly Duncan. Immediately United's coaches, Trevor Wawrzynski and Frankie Aparicio saw potential in this 5' 5" boy who was just age 9 at the time. Cal caught on quickly thanks to great coaching, amazing teammates and hard work. This last season has been nothing short of amazing for him.

In addition to his great work in the pool, Cal is a straight A student in the classroom at McGaugh Elementary school in Seal Beach.
