Programs

Capital Wave’s water polo programs are designed to focus on fun and fitness for all boys and girls aged 5 and up. In our I Love Water Polo program, athletes learn the rules of the game, basic skills such as swimming strokes and ball handling, and participate in local scrimmages. For those looking for more of a challenge in water polo, our competitive programs are targeted to athletes who enjoy the thrill of testing their water polo skills against similar-minded athletes. This is full contact water polo with all the excitement that it brings. Training focuses on going beyond the basics to give athletes the necessary individual and team skills to ultimately succeed in provincial, national, and international competitions.

Our season runs from mid-September to the end of June. Splash Polo™ and Active for Life are the only two programs that have 2 separate seasons (Fall-Winter & Winter-Spring).

We currently practice at these following pools: Bob MacQuairre Recreation Complex, Brewer Pool, Lowertown Pool, Splash Wave Pool, Carleton University, the University of Ottawa, Richcraft Recreation Complex, and Nepean Sportsplex.

**Please Note: Athletes may play above their age level, but not below it**

You can try any of Capital Wave’s programs for free all-year round!

Splash polo™

Splash Polo™ is the new water sport for kids! It was created by our Head Coach, Celso Rojas, and sponsored by Verova™ under the umbrella of Capital Wave. This sport is designed for children aged 5-9 years old who love the water, love to have fun, love to be active, and love to throw a ball around—all while having fun in a team sport environment.

Splash Polo™ is similar to the game play of water polo. It promotes water safety, healthy living, coed-team sport play, and the development of swimming skills, strength, endurance, and flexibility. Splash Polo™ is a once-a-week program.

I Love Water Polo

Previously known as our Initiation and Development program, our new I Love Water Polo program is designed for boys and girls aged 7-14 years old. Athletes learn the basics of the sport and play supervised non-contact scrimmages against each other.

Athletes must be under 14 years of age to participate at this level. There are also opportunities for local tournaments for this age group if interested. To join this program, children should have basic swimming skills and be comfortable in deep water.
