Final Planning Meeting for the 205th Corps Swim and Water Polo Team

It is finally official. We will begin the 205th Corps Swim and Water Polo Team in one week. I just walked out of a meeting with Captain Zebullah and he assured me that we would start the team then. They are going to get the broken pipe at the pool fixed so the pool can be filled with water and are going to select a team of 20 soldiers for me to coach. It was decided that the Afghan National Army soldiers would be democratically selected for the team from each of the units in the 205th Corps and on the Shorabak Garrison. I am glad that they are choosing the athletes this way and just not selecting athletes based off of family ties, ethnic background, or rank.

I eagerly wait to start the team next week. I already have swim and water polo gear here. I have suits, goggles, balls, water polo caps, and water polo balls. All I need now are athletes to coach and water in the pool. Here is the start of a new adventure!
