Scots Water Polo
Our team is a competitive water polo team offering high quality professional coaching and skills instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve water polo skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.
All of our coaches are certified USA Water Polo coaches and have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in the pool will be quality time.
We play two major seasons, a Winter Season and a Summer Season. The Winter Season begins in November and ends in February. The Summer Season begins in May and ends in August.
Our Elite level players range in grade from sixth through twelfth grades. Players will be taught the advanced skills and team tactics. In addition to these competent skill sets these players will be trained to be able to swim from 2500-4500 yards per training session.

This is to explain our policy for participating in tournaments.
If you confirm attendance at a tournament, that fee is your responsibility.
However, if you confirm and cannot attend, we require 5 days notice to relieve you of that financial responsibility.
Tournament fees are based on the number of players who commit. Therefore, if 12 players commit and the fee is $400, we split the fee among the players on the roster. If someone does not attend, does not pay, and does not notify Coach Kurt, the club incurs the fee for that player.
Coach Kurt will post the roster one week prior to the tournament on our website www.saaquatics.com under "Competitions" tab. Click on the name of the tournament to view the roster.
Thank you for your understanding and please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
The coaches are excited with the number of players and we enjoy seeing them involved in tournaments - have fun!
