How do I know when they are ready for Age Group Water Polo?

The SET coaching staff will let you know when your athlete is ready as far as their fundamental skills are concerned. The tough part is whether they are ready to commit to training on a daily basis. This happens at different ages for different athletes.

What is the key to water polo? Why the progression has consistently been successful?

Players are introduced to the sport at an early age with Splash Ball and as they mature and develop progress to Intro to Water Polo and Junior Water Polo. As athletes progress through each of the water polo development programs the key fundamentals and skills are continuously reinforced and developed. When the athlete has achieved a proficient understanding of the basics skills of water polo, they move into Age Group Water Polo. In Age Group Water athletes continue to refine the fundamentals of the sport and master basic strategy, and through attention to detail and discipline learn what it takes to be successful as an athlete. This coaching philosophy builds the foundation necessary to enter into the High School ranks as a varsity player, which in turn lays the ground work to reach their full athletic potential at the next level be it Division I, II, or III water polo. SET WPC has sent 125+ athletes on various levels of scholarship to the top schools in the country. Get your athlete started TODAY! The earlier you introduce your athlete to water polo the greater chances your athlete will have success.

What do I need to do as a parent to make my athlete successful?
