Our Classes

New students ages 9 – 14 will start in the Fundamentals of Water Polo Class. Age group students will then be moved into our Club Water Polo class when they are ready.  High School students looking to work on their skills should check out our private and semi-private lessons.

Fundamentals of Water Polo

Fundamentals of Water Polo is ran through the City of La Mirada and coached by Shaquatics Coaches. In this class students will learn eggbeater, ball handling skills, dribbling, counterbalancing, as well as the practice habits that are required for entrance into our Youth Club Polo program. Signups and payment for this class go through the city of La Mirada.

Upcoming Schedule






Youth Club Polo

This class is for kids ages 9 – 15 who have been moved up from the Fundamentals of Water Polo class.  In this class we will continue to build on the foundational skills we worked on in Fundamentals and we will add more advanced skills such as defensive positioning and tactics, 2M offense and defense, pressure passing, drives, and release moves.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are available for students ages 11 – 18.  Single player privates are good for focused work on eggbeater, ball handling, and head down and head up freestyle.  Group privates of 2 or 3 players are good for passing and shooting technique, step outs, 2M Offense and Defense, goalie work, and pressure passing.
