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.
