Each camper should have two years of water polo and/or VERY strong swimming experience in order to participate. Campers will receive training from the best coaches and athletes in the country. The camp staff is led by the UCLA coaching staffs, as well as current members of the men’s and women’s water polo programs. Campers will receive personal skill instruction by position, in addition to learning UCLA’s approach to conditioning, cross-training, nutrition, team strategy, and various philosophies of the game. They will learn both offensive and defensive strategies, and how to adapt them in game situations. Campers will take with them the knowledge and confidence necessary to excel in the sport of water polo. Camp fees include a camp t-shirt and awards. Be a part of the UCLA tradition and join us for an exciting summer of Bruin water polo!
