The Jewel Box Spider, also known as a Spiny Orb-weaver (Gasteracantha cancriformis), is a diminutive spiny spider which might look like a tiny, jewel-encrusted box. It may also resemble a hockey mask wearing stalker who likes to take long walks near the lake. These spiders mainly prey on whiteflies, moths, teenagers, and beetles. Did you hear something? If you are running through the woods, be careful not to predictably trip on nothing and end up in a web of terror!
What else is crawling around out there? Find out at https://www.nps.gov/foma/learn/nature/insects.htm

Yay! Can’t believe it took so long to get women’s polo in the olympics. Congratulations to all the women on the 2000 team, especially Duke alumnae Heather Moody.
20 years ago today the USA Water Polo Women's Olympic Team team made history, winning a silver medal at the first ever Olympic Games to feature women's water polo. We celebrate this group of women and all the women who came before them who fought for and dreamed of a day when women's water polo would be recognized on the world stage.
Be sure to check out a look back at the 2000 Games with athletes Heather Moody, Julie Swail and Maureen O'Toole alongside Head Coach Guy Baker by visiting: https://youtu.be/7-GMok_2TVI
Arrrggg! It's !
We do encourage you to choose yer audience wisely and avoid ending up "looking" like a pirate when the conversation walks the plank. (Remember. Getting too close to bison, or any wildlife, may lead to shivered timbers and loss of b***y.)

***After an unprecedented 12 weeks off, Duke Barracuda will start tomorrow morning!***
During Phase 1, we are required to have 1 swimmer per lane & comply with all COVID guidelines. We have 5 groups of 6x HS athletes using the pool on a rotating basis in the mornings; 4 groups based on times in the afternoons. So far, every lane we rent has been reserved! We cannot accommodate drop-ins at this time.
During Phase 1, no spectators are allowed in the facility; kids must be dropped off at the NW door & will be questioned & temp monitored for COVID. Everyone must wear a face mask and maintain social distancing - from leaving the car, entering the pool & jumping in the pool, PLEASE FOLLOW 6FT SPACING & WEAR FACE MASKS!
Be on-time and patient with the pool staff and coaches. No showers or deck-changing at the facility. You must arrive in your swim suit with your personal gear. At the end of your workout session, please leave immediately thru NE doors. Do NOT CONGREGATE in the parking lot.
Failure to follow COVID procedures will result in removal so please comply. I imagine the water will feel strange & wonderful - ENJOY!!

We will only have swimming with 1 person per lane and all must adhere to social distancing procedures and other infection prevention measures. No one will be forced to return, there are no negative consequences for Staying Home!
We will have a TEAM ZOOM MEETING on May 19 (Tuesday) at 5:30 PM. in lieu of AG Dryland. Please join us to meet our new Head Coach: Daryl Wells.

1) The 2020 Mtn Zones Tourney must be postponed, perhaps cancelled. AZ & CO pools will not open until July. Hopefully, this tournament will be moved to later in the year, possibly as late as November. That decision will be made by the end of April.
2) WMAC is closed until May 15, probably later honestly. Therefore, the 2020 Duke Tourney has been postponed until July 31-Aug 2. A final decision on hosting or postponing will be made after the Mtn Zone Tourney is decided.
3) All USA Swimming sanctions have been cancelled thru May. So the Duke Memorial meet is currently scheduled for June 19 (Friday). This will probably be a celebration, but may also be limited to coaches & swimmers. Hopefully, we've got some kiddos in the pool!
4) Saturday DUKE Games - Parents & 12Under can participate in FISHBOWL from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. Fishbowl is a combination of games like Password, Charades, etc.

Water Polo Wellness In Challenging Times - USA Water Polo Usually, this time of year would be filled with women's NCAA water polo games, the beginning of high school water polo in areas across the country, club water polo games, and gearing up for the Olympics in an Olympic year. But this year is different. The emergence of COVID-19 has challenged our coun...
We made it thru the first week of pool & school closures. Hopefully you've had a chance to catch your breath and enjoy time with your family. The Duke staff definitely hopes every one stays healthy during this break!!
My amazing staff & I truly miss you & your kids, so this week the coaches worked on building GroupMe conversation groups for each of our DCA groups. Looks like PreComp/Dis group is off to a great start with Memes from Coach Thia & suggested YouTube video from Coach Art.
Finally, I am selling new water polo balls from our large inventory in storage. Cost $25 each. Two great reasons to buy a Duke water polo ball
1) The kids can use them to work on passing or as a substitute for a Medicine Ball in dry land routines.
2) It will build up some funds to pay our coaches in April.
Contact me via text if you want one: (505) 249-7725.
10 Thoughts For Water Polo Athletes Missing Competition & Spending More Time At Home - USA Water Polo
10 Gifts of Now
1. Best time of year to have off because we have time to recover from the last, long season and prepare for a possibly hectic summer season & JOs
2. Focus on forming a new habit - nutrition, meditation, stretching. Implement a new behavior and stick to it.
3. Get ahead on school work while you have the free time to get it done. Put down your phone!
4. Eat healthy...fuel your recovery & strength
5. Meditate, 15 minutes a day. Live from your heart, explore your self and strengthen your intentions.
6. Improve your range of motion - 15 minutes of stretching per day. Complete dry land exercises that focus on core & hips.
7. Improve hand/eye coordination - improve reaction time
8. Play with a ball every day - hand spins, wall ball, pass with a parent or sibling. Keep it interesting and challenging
9. Watch the games on YouTube or USA Water Polo: study great players, goalies, shots, & strategy. Get what works& why it works in your consciousness!
10. Reflect & appreciate. What went well this past season, what can you improve? As you look back, be grateful for all the tournaments & trips in vans with your teammates. It was an awesome year!

I used to do this with my 3 kids during the summer, so they’d continue learning all year. Or at least reading and doing chores before they got on the computer (before cell phones and tablets).
If you need anything during this time while we all keep “social distance” please ask! If you need FaceTime lessons on fractions (always fun with cabin-fever kids) or proofreads because they’ve written an essay on “Moby Dick”, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
Really, if you need eggs or just a voice on the phone, please call. If I don’t have solutions, I know someone who will. We are a tight-knit community that will support anyone in need.
We came across this creative sample schedule from Jessica McHale Photography that may help your family get through the next few weeks.
