Girls Water Polo Camp - 2019

designed especially
for girl athletes

June 25-28, 2019 in Santa Barbara

The Girls Water Polo Camp is coached by experienced athletes and coaches to ensure the best instruction for female athletes our sport. We are experienced at the highest level and know what it takes to be the best. We want to create an environment that shows girls how to train for each position, how to fuel your body, and how to set goals for our sport turning them into reality.

Our coaching staff and counselors consist of the current UCSB women’s water polo coaching staff, Olympic medalists, and standout collegiate student athletes.

What to Expect from Us

We believe that some of the best ways to teach the sport is by getting in the water with the athletes as well as coaching on deck so athletes of all learning styles receive the most knowledge of the sport we can provide.

What we Expect from You

You can expect your athlete to endure seven to nine intensive training sessions building on both technical fundamentals of Water Polo as well as tactical instruction. We truly believe in teaching every player to learn every position to ensure success in this sport.

And …

This camp is intended for all levels of athletes in grades 6-12 and will receive individualized instruction to meet the needs of each athlete. The camp is open to any and all entrants limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.
