Splashball

Splashball is a fun and exciting way to introduce your little ones to water sports. (Ages 5-9)

This new program was developed by USA Water Polo and officially began March 26, 2010. Below is a partial description of the program from USA Water Polo:

March 26, 2010 – Today USA Water Polo announced the national roll-out of “Splashball™,” a new recreational program for young people designed to foster strong aquatic skills for beginning swimmers in a safe, fun environment.  Aimed at children aged 5-9, Splashball™ uses flotation, shallow pools and other kid-friendly elements to allow players to graduate to a friendly version of water polo directly from swim lessons.

“We believe that Splashball™ is a natural next step to basic swimming lessons, which will dramatically increase water safety and fitness”

Splashball™, which is a “no-contact” version of water polo is designed to allow kids to try the game with the same ease that they sample soccer or lacrosse.  Variations from the traditional sport version allow for any type of swimwear, such as board shorts or “jammers,” use of flotation devices like vests or noodles, and the ability to bounce off the bottom of the pool, if shallow.  The game allows them to build their skills in a safe, supervised aquatic environment.

“This is a perfect program for parents who want their kids to truly develop a high degree of comfort and safety in the water,”said Christopher Ramsey, USAWP CEO. 

“When they see the yellow ball, kids forget their fear and go after it.  This creates dramatic improvement in swimming skill, conditioning and confidence.  Kids also benefit from being part of a team in a fun, exciting atmosphere.”

*Splashball athletes must register with Costa Mesa Aquatics Club and USA Water Polo. Be sure to sign up using our club number 1693, as a Gold Member. USA Water Polo is currently charging $75 per year, but prices are subject to change. For current pricing visit their website www.usawaterpolo.org 

*** Please note:  When signing up for Splashball, please view our disclaimerprior to registering with CMAC and/or USA Water Polo.

Price is 175.00 per session
