That's the question that started my quest for innovation. It started off with a good idea, but turned into something so much better.
For a project, our teacher told us to be innovative. So with the help of my friends, we came up with an idea that is going to help out water polo program. We are going to host the first Intro to water polo clinic at our school. We are inviting girls from middle schools in our area to give water polo a try.
I didn't come up with the idea. My friend who is on my water polo team came up with it, but I like to take credit for it.
So far, we haven't done all too much, but maybe we have. It depends on your definition of much. We had made a twitter, a Facebook page, and a website for our team all in one study session while our team was in San Diego for a tournament. Through these media outputs, we can broadcast our team and let people know about what we are doing. It's actually fun to run the social media sites and see who is following you. But I have felt that our team has gotten more exposure through these avenues.
We had a meeting last week with our athletic director to make sure that we can continue with our project and know what we must do to follow through with it. The only problem we ran into was with us going to talk to the middle schools about our clinic. As of right now, we are not able to go to the middle schools, however, our teacher is working on it even though secretly I don't want to go speak in front of middle school girls.
The only details that need to be smoothed out are the date and the flyer for the clinic. Oh, and we must also plan what we are going to do in our allotted time with the girls. But that we still have time for. Hopefully people will want to come to our event and will want to continue with water polo in high school. Water polo is fun, they should all join after this event.
This was what I was forced to see on my pier today. What will you be forced to see on yours?
