CDM Aquatics Men's Grey U18 & U22 Water Polo
CDM Grey provides post-high school and collegiate water polo players with a venue and opportunity to continue participating in the sport of water polo, emphasizing preparation for and competing at the collegiate level. CDM Grey Water Polo focuses specifically on the needs of high school seniors who have completed their final high school seasons, helping them develop the skills and experience needed to transition to college, and maintaining and advancing the skills of collegiate players attending colleges without year-round programs during breaks and summers. For athletes interested in competing, one or more teams will be formed, and the team(s) will enter tournaments appropriate for the level of players on the team (eg: Junior Olympics, Cal Cup, U.S. Club Championships, collegiate, open, masters, & other age groups corresponding to USA Water Polo, Masters Nationals, & World Masters age groups).
Two week free trial period for new members!
