We offer one-time, 1-week (3 practices) free trial every season for new athletes of all ages. No water polo experience is necessary, however, participants must be able to swim unassisted.
Water polo can be compared to basketball or soccer. Instead of running, however, athletes are swimming - forward and backstroke, up and down the pool. When they're not swimming, they're treading water. Players never stand on or even touch the bottom of the pool. Therefore, the first thing we teach new participants is how to "egg beater" - the very efficient water polo method of treading water.
The free trial does not include participation in games or tournaments.
The free trial is available only one time per athlete.
There are three steps required to participate in the free trial. Your child can begin attending practice as soon as all the steps are complete.
The spring season begins mid-February. Click here for the practice schedule. Please do not complete Step 2 below until the practice schedule has been posted. You'll need the date of the first practice for Step 2.
STEP 1: WAIVERS - PRINT AND SIGN
Print, sign and bring these waivers to your child's first practice. On the multi-page waivers, save your ink and paper and print only the signature pages. If you have more than one child, you can put all the kids on the same form.
