About the group

Athletes 6th grade and younger participate in 2 hour long practices with a primary focus on fundamentals and defense. Athletes will condition with swimming and egg-beater drills while working on fundamental skills like passing and body positioning. Practices also involve shooting drills, frontcourt work, and counter-attack drills. Athletes can participate as a Novice (1-3 x week) or Advanced (3 x week) athlete. The goal of the Santa Clara 10u and 12u program is to introduce athletes to water polo and prepare 5th and 6th-grade athletes for high school and national level competition.
