What is Splash Polo with Capital Wave?
Splash Polo is a COED program created by Capital Wave targeted towards kids between the ages of 9-10. This program is for kids who love the water, love to have fun, love to be active, and love to throw a ball around. This 60-minute program promotes water safety, offers a healthy activity, and involves overall water fun. The purpose of this program is to offer kids the ability to play a sport in the water that involves a team environment, individual water skills, and happiness. In Splash Polo kids will improve their swimming abilities and learn the sport of water polo. Splash Polo is played in a shallow pool where kids are allowed to touch the ground while playing. Capital Wave is the only club in Ottawa offering the Splash Polo program. New swimmers and players are welcome throughout the year.
Why Kids Need Splash Polo?
Early age is a time for experimentation and building skills. Water skills are particularly critical at this stage of development both for safety and to establish strength and flexibility in the water. At an early age when many children are signing up for their first experience with soccer, swimming, basketball or baseball, a program like Splash Polo has never before provided an introductory program to allow kids to try the sport of water polo. The intent is to provide basic skills and understanding of the sport in a recreational format. Although water polo is known for its toughness and endurance, Splash Polo 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. Splash 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.
“We wanted our children to learn water safety, be active, and just have water fun. This program offers exactly that and my daughters love it. They have made great friendships and are far more comfortable in the deep water. The coaches are simply amazing! I can’t wait to get my youngest son in the Splash Polo program.”
