USSC » Waterpolo » Nike » California » San Diego

USSC has partnered with USA Water Polo Olympian Genai Kerr in offering a Nike 5meter Water Polo Camp this coming June. Instruction takes place each day at the Aztec Aquaplex, located on the San Diego State campus.

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

  • Day Camp runs 9:00am-4:00pm
  • Superior instruction from former Olympians and College Coaches
  • Co-ed program open to all ability levels (Ages 10-18)
  • Low camper to staff ratio and 24 hour supervision
  • Daily emphasis on fundamentals, position training, drills and scrimmages
  • Every camper receives a Nike Camp T-shirt

Genai Kerr

Genai Kerr is a USA Water Polo Olympian, coach, mentor, and true ambassador of the sport.  Genai was a member of the United States Men's National Water Polo Team for 12 years and played in the 2004 Athens Olympics, 2003 & 2007 Pan American Gold Medal games, and multiple World Championships.  He is one of the only athletes in history to compete internationally as a goalie and as a field player.  Most recently he was named MVP of the 2012 US Open after he helped Newport Water Polo Foundation win the national championship.  Genai has coached at every level, from age group to Division 1 college programs.  Over the last 15 years he has run hundreds of camps and impacted thousands of lives.

Surprisingly, Genai got involved in water polo by accident, following the whistles to what he thought was a basketball game and ended up at the pool. He excelled at both water polo and basketball at Coronado High School and received a water polo scholarship to UC Irvine to play under Coach Ted Newland. Genai went on to become a NCAA All-American in 1998 and 1999 and was awarded Big West Conference Male Scholar Athlete of the Year his senior year.

Great learning environment!

This camp is fun and teaches you things that you might not get to learn otherwise. You also get to interact with your coaches and the other people who play waterpolo. This is great because you get to see the different levels and the changes that happen within the transition between levels. This camp really helped me to learn to read the pool. If you are someone who wants to get better I would definitely recommend this camp. It was a great experience and you will get to learn from some of the most knowledgeable coaches in the game who played in the Olympics, played in collage and now coach at the highest levels.

Highly recommend!

I would recommend Nike camps to everyone. My daughter came home excited and wished every practice she had was taught by Mr. Kerr. Her goals were set higher than I have ever heard from her and she has a determination to improve. I only wish I could have had my 2 other kids available to attend with their sibling. My 13 year old came home excited at what she was taught and was able to teach her 16 yr old brother and 11 yr old sister some of the training techniques. ALL 3 of my kids want to attend the camp next time, and I will gladly send them!!
