High School Boys (Summer)

Our summer competitive water polo program is from May 6 through July 14. This program is designed to teach all athletes, intermediate to advanced, the technical and tactical water polo skills needed to compete at the highest level of play. Athletes will learn the individual fundamentals of mobility, passing, shooting, and defending. Athletes will also learn the tactical water polo strategies of front-court offense and defense, transition/counter-attack, 6v5 and 5v6. Goalkeepers will learn fundamental movements in the goal and how to defend specific tactical situations.

All participants must be registered as a “silver” member with USA Water Polo for the 2019 calendar year and affiliated with California Republic SC (#26152).  Go to USA Water Polo to register or change club affiliation.

Please note, this program fee does not include Cal State Games.   All those who wish to participate in the San Diego tournament will also need to pay a participation fee of $150/athlete (due prior to first game).  This will help cover the tournament entry fee and coaches’ wages/travel/lodging.  Athletes/families will be responsible for their own travel & lodging accommodations at Cal State Games.
