Introductory Youth Water Polo
Boys & Girls -- Ages 5-14
Our "Splashball" Youth Water Polo Program is our entry point into the sport of water polo. This program is a terrific way for kids to enhance their water safety skills while being introduced to the basics of water polo. Our program is a six-week clinic designed for kids ages 5-14. All levels of experience and ability are welcome (must be able to swim comfortably). Participants will learn the basic rules of the game, along with introductory movements and skills that will help them become more confident in the water. Participants will also have the opportunity for intrasquad scrimmages to get a feel for what it's like to play in a water polo game.
