Coaches are great!

I love the enthusiasm the coaches had. Their personal stories were great, and something each of our children can relate to.

Amazing!

This camp was great motivation for my water polo athlete to think about water polo in college and after. It was great to hear the Olympic Gold Medalist instructors talk about their introduction into the sport and the dedication it took to get them where they are. Our kids were fired up after this camp to take their play to the next level!

Great motivation!

The water polo camp was amazing! My sons which are at different levels each had a great time. The coaches took the time to explain the importance and reason for everything they did...from warming up, to practicing drills. Also each of the coaches shared their personal stories of how far the sport of water polo has taken them. It was very motivating even for me as a parent....
