USA Olympian Genai Kerr Looking Forward to Water Polo Winter Camp in Florida
Returning to The Sunshine State for the 10th consecutive year!
San Rafael, CA - The Nike 5meter Winter in the Tropics Water Polo Camp will run December 27-30, 2018 at the renowned Gulliver Schools.
Directing the program is USA Water Polo Olympian, Genai Kerr. A true ambassador of the sport, Genai was a member of the United States Men's National Water Polo Team for 12 years, playing in the 2004 Athens Olympics, 2003 & 2007 Pan American Gold Medal games, as well as multiple World Championships. Assistant camp directors include Felix Mercado, Head Men's and Women's Water Polo Coach at Brown University and John Abdou, who previously served as the Head Men's and Women's Water Polo Coach at Bucknell University prior to accepting the role as Executive Director of the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC).
Genai directs the annual program for water polo players of varying skill levels, providing a multi-faceted experience for each athlete. “I lover our new location this winter at the Gulliver Schools and working with players from around the country,” states Genai Kerr, "It's always one of the highlights of the year for me."
Winter in the Tropics is well-rounded combination of in-water instruction, dry-land fitness and an educational seminar making it a quality experience. The program provides a low camper to instructor ratio focusing on position specific training for drivers, shooters and goalies. Fundamental passing, shooting, team and individual defense along with tactical discipline and individual aspects of the game are emphasized and demonstrated in water by the staff on a daily basis through drills and scrimmages.
