2022 Summer Splashball!

Summer is right around the corner!  We are looking forward to seeing all the young ones poolside and continuing to develop the athletes in and out of the pool. 


We're super excited to expand our offering this summer for our youngest group...Summer Splashball! Splashball is an introduction to water polo and is a great way for our youngest athletes to learn the basics.

2004 Bronze Medal Olympian, elementary school teacher, and all-around rockstar Thalia Ormsby will be leading this class. She has too many accomplishments to list (you can check them out here!). She is an amazing teacher of the fundamentals and leads the splashballers in a way that is applicable to the next step, interactive, and, above all, FUN!

We also have our LTS group (learn to swim) group with Coach Sarah.  Sarah is a wealth of swim knowledge and coaches top swimmers in our county.  She will focus primarily on swim efficiency with a touch of water polo, Splashball is the opposite. The focus will be primarily on water polo with a splash (pun intended) of swim!  

Looking forward to seeing the young ones poolside! If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out!
