Philosophy
The sport of water polo does not have a strong youth system and our goal at St. Xavier is to create a platform by which kids of all ages can get the opportunity to play and compete in the sport of water polo. We are fundamentally focused and our goal is to have a very fun atmosphere while learning the basics. Since this is a sport with limited access, we recognize that the kids coming to the camp have very little (if any) experience, and that’s great! We just want to build into those that are interested in water polo. We will also have high school kids coming down to help out with these camps to develop relationships while teaching skills.

Content
Foundational skills covered will include:

  • Treading
  • Heads up swimming
  • Dribbling
  • Passing / Shooting
  • On ball pressure
  • Goalie skills

Method
Each skill will feature coaches in the water with the kids demonstrating and working with the kids. We will also have videos to show the kids so that they can get a better visual of the skills.We encourage giving effort and making mistakes. It’s how we grow!
