YOUTH WATER POLO AND SPLASHBALL
Splashball water polo is for kids in the 8U & 10U age group. Splashball is designed as an introduction to youth water polo for boys and girls in elementary school (5-9 years old). We also offer middle school & high school water polo for older kids.
Our coaches teach kids the basics of water polo and swimming (slowly getting them used to treading water, for example) and to the game itself. The splashball offered is for elementary school kids all over Los Angeles and beyond but we see most of our kids coming from neighborhoods in Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Culver City, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Venice, and Santa Monica.
Weekly Splashball & 10U Elementary School Girls & Boys Water Polo Practice Schedule:
~Fridays: 6:00-7:00pm (Santa Monica High)
~Sundays: 5:00-6:00pm (Santa Monica High)
Our splash ball practices are structured to focus on 3 main skills that kids need to develop into good youth water polo players:
- Swimming and treading water – swimming skills are developed as well as balance and technique with treading water
- Ball skills and technique – technique, balance and body positioning for treading water while passing, shooting and working with the ball
- Game time!!! – To learn splashball, kids need to play so we run drills and scrimmages focusing on understanding the game and the rules.
