SWIMMING AND WATER POLO CLUB
Swimmers are placed in groups according to speed and ability
These are basic descriptions of our groups. The swimmers will be assessed on the first day of practice and placed into their proper level. They're all the same price, so sign up for whichever you see fit if it's your first night.
At the coaches discretion, we will level your swimmer up. If you would like to be tested for a higher level, please contact Coach Sam or Claire for an assessment.
Having mastered the four strokes, most swimmers in the Gold group are registered under the USA swimming organization. In USA swim meets, our gold group swimmers have earned "blue" times and/or Junior Olympic time standards. In addition to stroke refinement, the group focuses on building endurance, strength and conditioning. Although this is our most prestigious group and our athletes are committed to excellence, practices are fun and run in a recreational environment. Whether athletes swim for personal enjoyment or to swim at a national level, our coaches will work to help athletes achieve their goals.

Water Polo Groups
Power aquatics purpose is to provide basic swim and water polo training in the community and prepare students for high school athletics. Our task is to bring all the differing skill levels and accompanying desires together into a unified program. Our greatest accomplishments include providing an affordable program, quality coaching, and getting kids excited about aquatics.
We offer lessons to all ages and abilities. On the first night of practice, we assess your athlete's skills, and place them in a group they will learn and grow. If you have siblings, even better! Everyone practices at the same time, so you can get in and out in time for dinner. See group descriptions below
Splashball Water Polo
This fun water polo class is a great way to introduce your child to the sport of water polo. Spashball is conducted entirely in the shallow end of the pool. Over the five-week course, children are challenged to learn how to egg beater and master the basic skills such as passing and shooting. Children must be water safe and able to swim the length of the pool.
Introductory Water Polo
Power Aquatics is open to everyone regardless of skill level. We feel that starting players will develop faster in a clinic type setting with more focused attention to individual development. Introductory practices are held in both the shallow and deep end of the pool to provide a fun and safe environment. This group focuses on learning to eggbeater, pass, shoot and basic skills/rules of the game. When athletes have mastered a certain skill, they combine with the youth level in controlled scrimmages during practice. Players who have developed the basic skills set will be invited to continue their development at the youth level.
Youth Water Polo (12u coed, 14u coed)
Youth level players work to perfect the fundamentals of the game. More advanced techniques and skills are introduced during our clinic-style practices. As these players prepare for high school, they will have scheduled practice times and monthly scrimmages against other clubs in the area.

"My son has been playing with Power for about 3 months. The coaching staff has been amazing and my son at 12 years old has had a great time. I never have to push him to go to practice and he comes home with stories every night. I highly recommend trying them out. They cover water polo and swim."
