Welcome to LUGI Water Polo LUGI Water Polo was founded in 1912 as a part of the LUGI sports federation which contained several sports. Although later in 1993 the federation was disolved and all the sports became separate clubs. After the disolve of the federation an alliance was created which has the sole purpose of creating a sort of companionship for the different LUGI clubs.
LUGI today is one of Swedens biggest water polo clubs with one one hundred members, and we are aiming to get bigger.

Below is a match report from the weekends elite matches in the womens category:
Here is from the weekend Elitserien Stockhom 21-22 April We went up to
Stockholm with the LUGI Ladies to play three tough water polymers
during the weekend.
NEPTUN - LUGI EURO FINANCE
Saturdays first match played Lugi against Neptune. We knew it would be a tough task against a strong resistance with good center play. Everybody struggled and Lugi let everyone play. The team made their best match so far in the season. But was not quite enough. Lugi let the three juniors Amalia Winberg Josefin Andréasson Nelly
Gullander, who dealt with that honor, get a lot of playing time.
Final result Neptune 17 Lugi 3
Lugis Ladies Goalie
JÄRFÄLLA - LUGI EURO FINANCE
Next match was against Swedens best team Järfälla. Lugi started off with a good defense and good goalkeeper. Lugi had many nice attempts and brought back the results that resulted. After half the match, Järfälla led by 10-3. In the third period, Lugi let all players play and made a planned goalkeeper by Järfälla won convincingly with 27-6. At this match, the junior Guro played very well and also made a penalty.

POLICIES - LUGI EURO FINANS
The Sunday match was against the police and it proved to be a tough event. The team was incredibly even with Lugis youthful energy and the polices lansdahl experience. The police took the lead 3-0 in the first period despite many chances for Lugi. With good defense Lugi could come back to 3-2. After hard and tough play, the match ended 4-2 for polices advantage. With the fighter and Lugis good goalkeeper Madeleine Svärdby, this Lugi was the ladies best bet in the elite series.

Despite the losses, Lugis ladies have come closer to the Stockholm team and learned what they need to measure with the best. Come and watch the worlds toughest sport on May 5-6 in Lund. Then we will take them.
the weekend of 14-15 April, LUGI Water Polo organized a collaboration
with Skåneidrotten and Idrottslyftet, a clinic for water polo coaches. The
clinic was the first of many thought and became an extremely big
success, a total of 22 registered coaches from different clubs,
including 6 from LUGI and 3 from SK Ran, the other trainers came from
other clubs around Sweden and some coaches even came from Denmark.
idea of the entire clinic was first and foremost the focus on the
Skåne clubs, of course, to promote the Skåne water polo, but the
invitation also went out to all other clubs in the whole district. The reason for this was that clubs that might want to start a water
polo earlier did not feel that they had a skilled trainer could send
their intended coach at a clinic to get it started.
Below you can read the report that Ervin Babic has compiled for LUGI after the completed clinic, please.
Location: Conference room and competition pool at Högevallsbadet, Lund.
Date: 14/15 April 2018
The seminar aims to show how professionals and development are done by water polo players in different categories. The two-day clinic is divided into two parts where we divided the work into different categories with specific topics.
the first part on Saturday, April 14, 2018 we had a 3-hour room for
theoretical lectures in the morning and a 3 hour swimming pool for the
practical part of the lesson. The first day was based on the work in the following categories:
a) Water polo school 8-11 years
b) U 12
c) U 14
d) u 16
Subjects for the theoretical part were:
1. Coach in water polo
2. Objectives and organization of professional work in clubs
3. Methodical approach (work with young players)
These topics also featured basic models and exercises for the above categories. More details we talked about were the water polo school, opportunities
in the training process and specific rules in training and games.
During the second part of the day we had the practical part of the seminar. The practical part also referred to the same categories as theoretical. Basic individual and group exercises with and without ball were presented. We also presented possible forms of training under specific conditions
and we chose the importance of exercises for the better development of
children in the water polo school.
The second day, like the first, began with theoretical lectures about 3 hours in the morning. For the second day, focus was on the following categories:
a) U 18
Subjects for the theoretical part were:
1. Training periods
2. Water polo-specific strength and power exercises in pairs
3. Scenario of contravention attacks within the water polo
started the lecture on the accumulation of water polo where we focused
on the preparation of annual plans and programs for junior and senior
teams on main competitions. Then we talked about the importance of special exercise in the water polo. We introduced specific couples in pairs. The final part of the theoretical lecture was intended for counter
attack and specific situations against counterattack, where we explained
by example how training is applied and what main stages are available.
the second part, we also had a practical part at the pool in 3 hours,
and before the training we saw an interesting senior game (LUGI
gentlemen against LSF gentlemen). The coach was tasked to concentrate on the counter attack and see
opportunities and bugs in two teams for that segment of the game.
Finally, as a leader, I would like to point out that in 2 days we have managed to achieve our goals. A group of 22 trainers in two days participated actively in both the practical and theoretical part of the seminar. Through the process, we directly compared the workflow of all clubs and tried to improve certain work segments.
I would like to thank the water polo club LUGI for the excellent
organization of seminars where, as a leader and other participants, I
had all the prerequisites for a quality experience of the seminar.
On the 12/3 at 18.30, LUGI Water Polo held its annual meeting in the conference room at Högevallsbadet in the usual order. The business report was read, club chairman Seth von Dardel presented the clubs finances. The
annual meeting is an important part of you as a member / parent of
children, giving you the opportunity to gain a better insight into how
the clubs structure looks and the situation within the club. In addition, the nomination committee also had the candidates for the new Board 2018, which was clubed.
The new board of 2018 received three new members, Aleksandra Nikolic
(chairman of the parent association), Laura Griffin (assistant coach of
the USM A girls) and Moulham Abboud (junior and youth manager for the
unfortunately, was allowed to say goodbye to Gabor Tilesch, who did not
announce his interest in re-election to the Board. He will be missed by
us all since Gabor is the one who really signifies and is associated
with LUGI and has been in the club since the 80s. Gabor
is now focusing entirely on his political assignments within the
culture and leisure board, but he still comes down to matches of course.
Thank you very much for everything Gabor!
The Board was also pleased to say goodbye to Justus Gremsperger and
Michael Hoy, as well as alternate members Christine Walder and Lisa
Nedstrand, who neither chose to nominate for the Board.
mention that Michael Hoy was one of the stubborn elders who rebooted
the club with the help of Gabor Tilesch in 2012 and see where we have
come since then! Michael has lived for a while with his family in Stockholm and plays for SPIF (Police).
You will all be missing and LUGI will thank you for your big event within the club.
It will never be forgotten!

LUGI Water Polo
Match report from the mens elite series where LUGI Euro Finans met LSF from Linköping in the battle about two major points. Finally,
it was the LUGI gentlemen who drew the longest straw and could get a
rebound for the poor loss they suffered from LSF on the away team
earlier in the season. Further down is also a brief statement from Leonidas who was LUGIs strongest offensive player in the four-match match.
Leonidas Athanasoulias to LUGI:
LUGIs team has made this year very much. After the win against SPIF on the runway, we knew we had great chances to win against LSF at home. Our
goalkeeper, Francesco, is the most important factor when the opponents
get so frustrated when they fail to offend that they do not focus on the
defense at all, making it easy for us to do the "simple goals". We also get a flow in the game when it comes to rescue after rescue. We also played well as teams, most of them worked both offensive and
defensive and we put our man more positions which made it very difficult
for LSF to catch us when we got the lead from the start of the match.
LUGI Euro Finance - LSF: 9-7 (3-1,1-2,4-1,1-3)
Leonidas Athanasoulias 4, Moulham Abboud 2, Kim Hansson, Seth von Dardel, Ramez Ghannam 1-1-1.
Niklas Greberg 3, Henrik Palm 2, Georg Zdolsek, Carl-Simon Ellingsen Larsson 1-1
takes the command directly into the game by expulsion and gets more
play, Captain Kim Hansson threw two shots in the line in the rib and
then LSF succeeds in keeping the defense. On
the other hand, LUGIs young Leonidas Athanasoulias other plans had
two straight goals for LUGI on fine shot from outside which shocked LSF
goalkeeper Markus Zdolsek. Moulham Abboud takes and threw him one third and LUGI has the lead with 3-0. LSF,
however, will succeed in getting LUGI number 9, Seth von Dardel
expulsion and then LSF number 9, Niklas Greberg, can bring 1 reduction
goal with 44 seconds left on the clock. Francesco Sacco has also shown directly in period 1 that he is counting on as always in the LUGI goal.
Starting with two men, more attacks for LSF where LUGI again shows great and fine defense and taps again. Moulham Abboud for LUGI contests LSF John Sandlund and makes 4-1 to LUGI. Everything seems to be the way for the wine-loving gentlemen today. LSFs Carl-Simon Ellingsen Larsson comes in from the right after LSFs counterattack and manages to score 2-4 for LSF. Six expulsions total for both teams during period 2. In the last
minute of period 2, LSF gets more, LUGI defense is working hard, Georg
Zdolsek gets an extremely nice pearl through the help of John Sandlund
through the LUGI defense with three seconds left of period 2.
Leonidas begins the LUGI period 3 with four of to 5-3. LSF Marco Cirillo gets expelled and LUGI has more there Kim Hansson again gets the chance and puts you 6-3 to LUGI. At
this point in the game, the men have already had seven men less but
only five more men, which indicates a very pace of our gentlemen. In
period 3, Henrik Palm wakes up in LSF and threw 4-6 on man more through
a very nice side shift from the wrong edge where the shot takes over
the blocks from LUGIs Justus Gremsperger, an important mental goal for
LSF and motivation. LUGI
responds again from Kim Hansson who puts a penalty away from the center
position on fine recordings from left-handed colleague Nicolas Otti. Leonidas reappears and sets his fourth and last goal in the match. Thirty
seconds later, its time again, this time Ramez Ghannam for LUGI,
drawing goals from center position over head of LSF goalkeeper Markus
Zdolsek. 8-4 after period 3.
this period something happens that happened earlier but which the men
should be rid of at this time, everything falls for only a few seconds. Balls are dropped and not managed. Niklas Greberg of LSF begins with a nice shot from the outside that surprises LUGI goalkeeper 8-5 to LUGI still. Ramez Ghannam wins his third and final expulsion during the match and gets up. Seth von Dardel is wearing an expulsion and Niklas Greberg is again in the lead, 8-6 to LUGI. LSF
takes time out, Henrik Palm contests LUGIs William Latak and the score
is 8-7 with a total of 4 minutes and 26 seconds left of the match. The game is stepping up and becoming even more physical, it is about who wants it most. None
of the teams succeed in getting the ball in goal in this match, which
is not only played between the outspellers between Swedens two best
goalkeepers, Francesco Sacco in LUGI and Markus Zdolsek in LSF. With
two minutes left, LUGIs big giant, Seth von Dardel forward, spins
Niklas Greberg at halfway, straight ahead to goal and puts 9-7 to LUGI. The last two minutes, the LUGI defense holds tremendously just like at the start of the match. Unless LSF fights Järfälla on the 29/4 of April, LUGI will play semi-finals, best of three against SPIF (Police). Congratulations to our gentlemen! Forward LUGI!
