USA Water Polo Club

Welcome to the MCDA USA Water Polo Team!  MCDA Water Polo is open to anyone above the age of 12 who is a proficient swimmer.  Practice will consist of teaching our players the core fundamentals of egg beating, passing, dribbling, shooting, driving and defending.  They will also learn to understand the game from and “X” and “O” perspective. 

The goal of the club is to further develop the player’s individual skill and knowledge for the game.  Through our club, high school players will gain the experience and increased practice times to improve on their game.

Schedule an appointment or come by the aquatics office

If you have questions about your account, billing and specific charges assessed to your account email is always the best way to start the communication. Sometimes in person is easiest and best and in that case it is best to schedule an appointment to do so. We are typically in the office during school hours and have some availability for meetings in the afternoon/evenings but request an appointment or a heads up before coming by to be able to give you great service without taking away from our swimmers. The hours of 2pm-7pm are our busiest coaching times and we devote our time to the swimmers. In order for us to give our attention to the swimmers and to be able to give you our full attention and service we request to please refrain from lengthy discussions during those times.
