Nike 5meter Carpinteria Winter Water Polo Clinic

USA Water Polo Olympian Genai Kerr and USA Water Polo High Performance Director, John Abdou, have partnered in offering a Nike 5meter Water Polo Clinic this coming February. Instruction takes place at the Cate School campus pool located in Carpinteria, CA.

Designed by the top coaches and athletes in the country, Nike 5meter Water Polo Camps provide in-water instruction to make an immediate impact on an athlete’s game. Young athletes will have the opportunity to learn first hand how Olympic Athletes train, meet their nutritional needs, and balance their lives.

We want our campers to come home with experiences that enrich both the quality of their play and their life through a better understanding and greater appreciation for sport, as well as more developed techniques and a heightened level of self-confidence.

Highlights Include

  • Superior instruction from USA Olympians and College Coaches
  • Olympians get in the pool with you to demonstrate and lead drills
  • Low camper to instructor ratio
  • Emphasis on fundamentals, position training, drills and scrimmages
  • Position Specific Training for Drivers, Shooters, Goalies & 2 Meter Offense & Defense
