    Thank you!

    July 11, 2018: I just wanted to thank you first off for creating this Water Polo camp so that I and other students could have the opportunity to learn from amazing coaches with different values and teaching methods. It helped a lot to see and hear the diverse ways on how to better my skills and I learned that through hard work, and a little bit of fun, I could accomplish the things I set out to do. I am also grateful that you took the time to help me when I was struggling with moving quickly through the water while blocking. The biggest thing for me was that you never said that I couldn’t do it because I was short or built the wrong way and that meant a lot to me. I am looking forward to seeing you again next month for the goalie camp! This camp was one of the best experiences of my life. Thank you.

    Positive learning environment!

    August 18, 2017: My daughter has attended three Nike Water Polo camps and cannot wait to attend her next. She continues to learn new techniques and truly enjoys the time she spends at camp. It has been a positive learning environment and renews her love of polo each time.

    Great learning environment!

    August 21, 2015: 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 water polo. 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!

    July 10, 2015: 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!!
