Sign up for summer Water Polo Camp

 “Rockford water polo has been very successful, with the boys high school team winning five state championships and the girls team three,” said Coach Dave McWatters. “Our success, though, lies not just with the won-loss record. Water polo teaches discipline, teamwork, dedication, and helps kids get in shape. The kids have a lot of fun, so even if they have never played before, we will teach them.”

What is water polo? McWatters says, “Take a little soccer in the water, add some strategies from basketball and hockey, run some football passing routes, some long baseball throws, mental chess moves, mix them all in H20 and you have this exciting sport.”

Have fun with the great sport of water polo! Here are some great opportunities to try out an awesome sport. Sessions are taught by the Rockford High School coaches and players at the Rockford High School pool.
