Being a Blossom is all about fundamentals and fun! Campers will learn how to swim water polo style, egg beat, pass, and shoot. Campers will be introduced to basic water polo rules and strategy. 

Daily Activities:

Water Polo camp is designed to introduce and reinforce the fundamental skills necessary to play the sport, including:  

  • Eggbeating

  • Water polo swimming  

  • Ball handling, passing, and shooting 

  • Driving 

  • Defensive positioning 

  • Offensive and defensive hole-set positioning 

  • Basic knowledge of game play and strategy 

Rain Day Activities: In the event of severe inclement weather, our campers will be engaged in the following indoor activities: 

  • Ball sports (such as handball and other traditional camp games) 

  • Review of water polo strategy and rules 

We will follow the weather closely to make sure that campers get back into the pool as soon as it is safe to go outdoors.
