What is Competitive Water Polo?
Our Competitive program is for athletes that demonstrate the desire, skills and commitment to move one more step up in their water polo sport career. The focus is on perfecting and mastering individual skills, improving passing and shooting abilities, and performing variations of team strategies. This program allows them to participate at the Provincial and National League level. Depending on the athlete’s age and the coaches’ decision, they can register in the 14U, 16U, 19U or Senior Competitive program. Athletes in the Competitive program have opportunities to play tournaments locally, throughout Canada, and internationally.
Our goal is to support and help as many athletes that want to be accepted onto Team Ontario and/or Team Canada. We also support athletes who want to pursue University scholarships to go play in the NCAA league or in the OUA league. The Competitive program consists of four practices per week.
