Brown Recreation is excited to continue our Youth Water Polo lessons. The Brown Youth Water Polo lesson course is a 5 week program / 3 lessons per week that is best suited for students age 8 to 16. This course will introduce participants to the essentials of the sport. The rules of the game as well as the basic skills necessary to play will be taught. Special attention will be given to individual skills like swimming, ball handling, offense/defense, egg-beater tread, passing and shooting. Group skills including sportsmanship and team tactics will also be covered.
Participants enrolling in this course must be competent swimmers. Specifically, they must be able to swim 75 yards of freestyle and tread in the water for three minutes. These skills will be tested at the first lesson. If a participant is not able to meet these requirements, remediation may be necessary.
