PLAY! Polo

About our PLAY! Polo Program

PLAY! Polo is our entry-level program that is targeted at kids between the ages of 9 to 14 years old who love the game of water polo and all they want to do is play it. Coaches may recommend younger athletes to move up to our PLAY! Polo program sooner if they meet certain criteria. Our COED program is mainly focused around the concept of giving kids the opportunity to play water polo games more frequently as well as teach them the ins and outs of the game. With emphasis on participation and fun, athletes 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. PLAY! Polo is played in a deep pool where athletes are not allowed to touch the bottom of the pool. They must be able to swim 25m unattended and have a notion of treading water.

Covid-19 Update: Please note that all programming has been modified to ensure the safety of the athletes and the coaches. 

Why Kids Need PLAY! Polo?

It’s important for athletes to learn various motor skills and hand-eye coordination in the water. In practices, athletes will not only play supervised non-contact scrimmages against each other, but they will develop handball skills, shooting techniques, various positional techniques, all while combining team dynamics and strategies of the game. Although water polo is known for its toughness and endurance, the PLAY! Polo program harnesses all the fun, dynamic aspects of the game in a safe, easy to learn aquatic experience that will motivate kids to swim and stay fit. PLAY! Polo is also unique in aquatic sports in that it provides the team element that supports social development. Kids at this age expect their activities to have a social and interactive component. Athletes will also be able to play in local scrimmages and take part in Capital Wave’s House League Games every weekend once we return back to normal.

If you feel your son or daughter is too young or inexperienced to join our PLAY! Polo program, we highly recommend our Splash Polo program which teaches the basics of water safety, swimming strokes and basic water polo skills. For more information on Splash Polo please click HERE.

“Our girls were born for the water. We wanted our girls to learn a team sport in the water so we chose Capital Wave’s PLAY! Polo program. Our decision was also based on their coaching staff and their method of training. It’s like watching hockey, but in the water. What kid doesn’t like to score multiple goals per game? We are extremely happy with our decision and with joining the Capital Wave Family!”
