2019 Mudrats Water Polo Program -- 14&U and 11&U Age Group Divisions

Type: Aquatic Activity

Location: Centennial Beach Main Entrance at Centennial Beach

Fee: Resident: $125.00. Non-resident: $155.00

8 Week Session -- Thurs., May 30 - Thurs., July 25, 2019

Age Divisions: At least 8 but less than 11 (effec. 5/31) and 12 but less than 14 (pre high school)

Welcome to our NEW PROGRAM -- Mudrats Water Polo is seeking both female and male athletes, ages 8-11 and 12-14 (pre high school). Athletes must be able to keep themselves safe in an all deep water facility and must be capable of swimming 200 yards freestyle for time. Practices are held primarily at Centennial Beach, but may co-op at times with other area subdivision pool programs for additional scrimmage times.

Participants will be instructed in basic water polo skills, rules of the game and team sportsmanship concepts. Skill development includes water polo strokes, treading water, passing, shooting, and competitive team competitions. The goal of the program is to enhance and compliment each athlete's swimming and aquatic experience with the introduction of a new, popular and growing team ball sport. Registrations do not require athletes to be members of the Mudrats swim team.

Given a sufficient level of interest, the team age divisions (11U, 14U B&G) will enter the established Naperville Summer Subdivision League (www.NSSWPL.org) with athletes grouped according to ability and school district attendance boundaries. Staff will be initially composed of West Suburban WPC members (www.WSWPC.com) with their posted aquatic biographies as available online. To register, please complete the following NPD Program Guide Registration and submit the below Information Form to receive Program Updates. Check back often at MudratsWaterPolo.com for the ongoing Calendar of Events changes or additions.
