Washington & Jefferson Water Polo Camp 2020

June 21-24th

Washington & Jefferson Water Polo Camp is more than a regular water polo camp. It is one of the unique water polo experiences available to young players – particularly in the Eastern and Midwestern United States. Our camp is a  hands-on approach to water polo instruction delivered by coaches and players who have reached the top levels of their sport.  Most importantly, much of the program’s training is done with the instructors in the water so that participants benefit from close-up, in-water demonstrations and interactions.  This type of instruction is a rewarding, beneficial and unique experience for players of all ages. Participants are sure to gain a better understanding of the positions they play and key skills, moves, and techniques needed to elevate their overall game.
