Welcome to San Mateo Athletic Club Water Polo!

 

 

 


Beginner Water Polo (Ages 8-14) Bulldog Beginner Water Polo is an introductory group that is designed to expose both boys and girls ages 8 to 14 years to the basics of water polo & friendly competition.  This group is designed for athletes who are brand new to the sport or interested in learning the rules and the general strategy of the game. Swim development and fundamental water polo drills are the focus of every practice session. Practices are offered Monday through Thursday. 

Advanced Water Polo (ages 10-16) This group is ideal for those current water polo athletes that understand the fundamentals of the game and want a higher level of play & instruction. Coaches will have the final say if a player is ready to be in the advanced level. 

If you are new to the program, please come to one of our tryout dates to determine whether your child is ready for the "Beginner" or “Advanced” group. Current water polo athletes will be assessed during practices. Coaches will communicate to the child’s guardian if they are ready to move up to the advanced level.  

INTERESTED IN JOINING OR SCHEDULING A TRYOUT FOR OUR NEXT SESSION?: Athletes must be able to swim 200 yards of continuous freestyle and be able to tread water independently for 2 minutes prior to joining the beginner group. 

 

Please e-mail our Aquatic Coordinators at smac.aquatics@smccd.edu for all tryout inquiries.

Please Note: Our Recreational Water Polo program will become a part of USA Water Polo during the 2019/202 season.
