Come Join Us This December!

USSC is proud to partner with Cal Water Polo Head Coach, Kirk Everist, this winter 2023 to bring you the Cal Water Polo Winter Camp! The camp will be held on the beautiful UC Berkeley campus, located on the eastern side of the San Francisco Bay with the central campus resting on 178 acres in Berkeley, California. Camp will take place each day at the Spieker Aquatic Complex that was just host to the 2022 NCAA Championship, where the Bears became back-to-back National Champions.

The focus of the program will be in-water instruction on the fundamentals of the game. Fundamental passing, shooting, team and individual defense along with tactical discipline and individual aspects of the game will be discussed. Don’t miss this opportunity to work with the top players and coaches in the country.

All Cal Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants. For your safety and benefit, we recommend you choose a camp that fits your level of development. All events are subject to change based on NCAA and Covid-19 restrictions. Due to high demand and limited capacity, prices are subject to increase as camp exceeds 25%/50%/75% capacity.

Highlights Include
  • Instruction by Cal Men's Water Polo coaching staff and current players
  • Low camper to instructor ratio
  • Daily emphasis on fundamentals, position training, drills and scrimmages
  • Position Specific Training for Drivers, Shooters, Goalies & 2 Meter Offense & Defense
