Youth Water Polo Registration!

Youth Water Polo Registration!
Summer 2016 Registration is now open!

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.

July 19 - August 14, 2016
                Tuesday: 6:00-7:30pm
                Wednesday: 6:00-7:30pm
                Sunday: 3:30-5:00pm

As before, the instructors will meet the students in the front lobby the first day of class in order to show them around and how to check in. For future classes, all youth water polo students can check in at the welcome center and head down to the pool deck independently. Parents are encouraged to watch from the spectator seating area upstairs, but are certainly welcome to relax in the lobby area or alcoves as well.
