Phillip shared his expert knowledge about canoe polo with our class. We all really enjoyed hearing about the equipment you use Phillip, and some of the rules of the game. It was cool when you put some of your gear on to show us how it worked. You must be good at playing canoe polo, to be playing in an intermediate team. One of the most interesting parts was when you showed us a picture of your Dad going for the ball and crashing into one of the other team. It sounds like a really physical and exciting game. Thanks for sharing your expert knowledge with us Phillip.
