Youth Club Water Polo
Our Youth Club Water Polo Class is for boys and girls ages 10 – 15 who have been moved up from our Fundamentals of Water Polo Class. In this class we will work on many essential skills including passing, shooting, defensive positioning, 2M, Drives, Pressure Passing, on ball defense, and lanes defense.
Private lessons are available with Coach David. These are great for focused eggbeater, swimming and basic skill work. In private groups of 2 or three more advanced skill work can be addressed.
