About the group

Athletes 9th grade and older participate in 2 hour-long practices, focused on fundamentals and teamwork. Athletes have the option to practice up to 4 x week. For the first half of practice, athletes will condition with swimming and egg-beater while working on fundamental passing and body position skills. The second half of practice usually involves shooting drills, frontcourt work, and counter-attack drills. The goal of the Santa Clara program is to develop athletes for high school varsity, national-level competitions, and collegiate level water polo.
