About our High-Performance Academy
We are excited to bring back our High-Performance Academy (known as our HPA program) this fall season. Our HPA program is endorsed by several national team coaches and is a centre for athletes to develop and reach their personal best. Our athletes train an additional 4 hours a week on top of their regular competitive practices. Most of our athletes attend sport schools, however that is not a requirement to join this incredible program. The amount of progress and improvement that our athletes have shown and accomplished is like no other and it is clearly visible both in and out of the water. Our athletes are able to drastically change their water polo bodies to allow for muscle growth and agility in the water.
Our program was first created in the 2017-2018 season by our water polo legend and 4-Time Olympian David Hart. Working alongside our Club Head Coach, Rodrigo, the main mission of this program still continues to be to help athletes reach their personal best. Although our HPA program teaches some tactical work, our priority is on self-development with a huge emphasize on SKILL and TECHNIQUE. This program does help athletes reach Team Ontario or National Team programs, however, it is not the sole priority.
Why Kids Need High-Performance Water Polo?
If you are an athlete that wants to see your full potential and see what it is like to reach your personal best, then this program is for you. There is no sugarcoating this intense program as it is mentally and physically demanding, however, the results and the outcomes are far more rewarding. We encourage families to allow athletes to register for this program if they have narrowed water polo down as their way of life, their dreams, their sport, and their passion. This program demonstrates and teaches athletes what it really takes to be a high-performance athlete.
There have been a lot of years of planning and development to make this program come to life and become a respected prestige program. We love the hard work our athletes put in every day, but we also thank the parents for allowing them and supporting their children.
“We cannot believe the change we see in our son both physically and in the pool. He is a totally different athlete than his first water polo session with the HPA program and we love supporting him throughout his journey. The amount of progress that not only my son, but all the athletes in the HPA program have accomplished is remarkable. This intense program is for elite water polo athletes that want to reach their personal best. We strongly encourage parents to consider this option if their child loves water polo as much as our son does.”
