WATER POLO!!!

People playing Water Polo

Water polo has become increasingly popular and is being recognized as one of the most complete and competitive aquatic sports for many years through the incorporation of physical activity, teamwork, and discipline.  Danilo Sierra-Giraldo, head coach for the Staples High School boys and girls water polo teams, has created a program to target children from ages 8 - 15 to learn the sport and grow as athletes and individuals, while helping children develop and share their love for the water. 


Instructional Water Polo

Does your child love the water, but is not interested in committing to a swim team?  Has your child heard of water polo, but is hesitant to join because it is something new and different?  This is the perfect program for him/her.  Instructional water polo focuses on teaching your child the essential components of water polo (catching, throwing, shooting, treading, offense, defense, rules of the game, etc.) while maintaining a fun, non-competitive atmosphere.  Participants must be able to independently swim 25 yards on their stomach and back for 25 yards each.  Equipment will be provided.

 

Inter-Club Water Polo

Is your child interested in water polo and has the desire to take a stab at competing against kids their age on other local teams?  In this program, kids will learn the essential skills of water polo (catching, throwing, shooting, treading, offense, defense, rules of the game, etc.).  Additionally, they will be given the opportunity to play against other teams within Fairfield County in friendly scrimmages aimed at strengthening and developing skills in addition to adding a new level of excitement and fun!  Matches will give kids the opportunity to practice skills learned during the week AND allow them to make new friends and connections, countywide.  Recreational matches will be scheduled this fall and any home match will be played at Staples High School on Friday evenings.

Participants in this group will be required to come prepared with a water polo bathing suit, and must be able to independently swim 25 yards on their stomach and back for 25 yards each.  It is strongly suggested that participants interested in playing in the inter-club matches also enroll in the competitive swim course offered for additional strength and endurance training.
