Water Polo Camp

Westminster Academy is excited to announce the return of WA Summer Water Polo Camp!

All ability levels are welcome to join us as we offer an introduction to the Water Polo world in a safe and fun environment. This is a great way to spend a part of Florida’s hot summer, as all aspects of the camp will be taking place around the WA pool. Players will be divided into small groups based on age and ability and will be thoroughly taken through all aspects of this wonderful sport.

This will include a detailed description of rules of the game through demonstrations and illustrations on a board, watching footage of games to show plays and rules in execution, a large variety of game skills and drills, and a good amount of scrimmaging to put everything into action.

The camp will be divided every day differently to practice and work on diverse aspects of the sport.

Examples of activities will include

  • Watching videos of the world’s greatest players, games, drills
  • Increasing the physical condition of each participant
  • Improving ball handling technique and coordination
