Why a Water Polo program just for Girls?
This program is designed for girls between the ages of 8 to 14 years old (born between 2007 through 2013) who love the water and want to swim and play. This program is mainly focused around the concept of giving girls the opportunity to learn and sustain a life-long love of water polo in a comfortable atmosphere. We want our athletes to learn the fundamental skills and rules of the game at a young age, so they enter our recreational and competitive programs knowing what the sport is all about. The goal of Girls Are Champions! Water Polo is to get as many girls as possible playing water polo. In a normal season, athletes learn the basics of the sport and play supervised non-contact scrimmages against each other. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, modified practices and opportunities have been created for this group. To join this program, girls should have basic swimming skills and be comfortable in deep water (have a minimum of Red Cross Swim level 5). Every girl registered in this program will have the opportunity to play in our Capital Wave Games League (CWGL) every Sunday once we are able to run it again.
