This course will encourage students to learn from their mistakes, play with numbers, and fully experience the concepts of fractions, in a pressure-free setting.

    Water Polo Camp

    The Water Polo Camp is developmental in nature, designed to teach basic and intermediate water polo skills and fundamental techniques. While we encourage athletes of all water polo experience levels to attend, this camp is specifically designed for athletes that are deep water safe. By the end of the camp, our goal is to give each camper training with the following skills:

    *Offensive techniques with and without the ball
    *Defensive techniques on and off the ball
    *Team play


    Campers should also expect to spend some time participating in "dry land" drills, which will teach foundational principles outside the distraction and added challenge of the pool. For most drills, campers will be separated by ability and will be instructed based on skill level.Items to bring each day: water bottle, towel, swimsuit, sunscreen, athletic shoes for dry land.
    We hope to provide a fun water polo experience!

    Prerequisites: All participants must be able to swim 50 yards freestyle and 50 yards backstroke and be deep water safe.

    Swimming Lessons

    Splash SwimAmerica is a national learn-to-swim program operated by the American Swimming Coaches Association. We believe that swimming lessons are the most important lessons parents will ever purchase for their child. At SwimAmerica, our swim coaches take a caring approach towards teaching children to swim, and are trained to help reluctant children adapt to a swim environment. We emphasize the proper techniques of swimming and give special care to correct breathing, body position, and good swimming strokes.
