2018 FALL Water Polo Session

2018 JERSEY WAHOOS WATER POLO FALL SESSION

 

Last year the Jersey Wahoos Swim Club launched a youth water polo program specifically designed for boys and girls, ages 8-14. The new program was a big hit and in early 2018 Wahoos proudly became South Jersey’s first aquatic club to enter an age-group water polo team in the American Water Polo Association’s Mainline League!!!

This coming September Jersey Wahoos will continue to embrace one of the country’s fastest growing sports by hosting another Fall Water Polo Session. Coaches & clinicians with years of experience at the age group, high school, collegiate, national & international levels will guide each participant as they learn the fundamental concepts, rules, and skills for playing water polo.

Besides being a really fun sport, water polo can compliment competitive swimmers by offering many opportunities and benefits, including:

  • Learning new swimming strokes and aquatic skills for a sport that is played in many colleges around the country

  • Increasing fitness, strength, endurance & stamina

  • Building friendships while sharing the values of teamwork & sportsmanship

  • Training in a safe, respectful and positive environment

 

The Fall Water Polo Session includes a Beginner Group and an Experienced Group.

  • Beginner Group will focus on introducing the action-packed team sport of Water Polo to young athletes {Boys & Girls ages 8-14} who have no prior competitive water polo experience.

  • Experienced Group is for athletes {Boys & Girls ages 8-14} who have prior water polo experience and would like to learn new skills that will help them to prepare for the 2018-2019 competitive water polo season.
