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.

Age Eligibility

A player's age division is determined by the athlete's age on August 1st of the year in which the tournament is being held.

  • Example: If a player is 14 years old on August 1, they are eligible to compete in the 14&U division. If an athlete turns 15 on or before August 1st, his/her age is 15 on August 1st and is therefore no longer eligible for the 14&U division. They are, however, able to participate in the 16&U division.
