Waikato Water Polo runs a School Holiday programme (numbers dependant). This programmes are focussed on Fitness and Fun with a large dose of learning the basic techniques, rules and game play. Whilst its designed for our younger members looking to get a solid grounding in the game. The programme also caters for older kids who wish to refine technique, refresh skills or just get in some extra training time (and we are always happy to have some of the older kids come back and help teach and inspire our younger ones). The days are a mix of land based, desk based and both swim pool and deep water pool time.
The basic plans are:
April/May School Holidays: Basic Rules, Refs Calls, Basic Techniques (Egg Beater, Swimming, Throwing).
July/August School Holidays: Team work, Swim work, Goalie basics, Water polo positions
