Splashball Ages 5 - 9

Chelsea Piers Connecticut offers a safe, fun and effective learn-to-play program for budding water polo enthusiasts. Splashball provides children who love being in the water with all the FUN-damentals of water polo while developing the essentials of teamwork and sportsmanship. Splashball players use vested buoys or 'noodles' to teach the fundamentals of the sport and basic ball skills. This is a great bridge between beginning swim lessons and introductory level water polo. Splashball also helps to build each participant's swimming, balance, and coordination skills, helping to create a water-safe child in a fun setting. No prior water polo experience is required.

House League Ages 7 - 14

Dolphins (7-10 years) and Sharks (11-14 years) are co-ed programs that provide each participant with the opportunity to learn basic water polo rules & skills in a fast paced, fun atmosphere. Each practice consists of 30 minutes of skills development and 45 minutes of game play and feature a variety of exciting drills and exercises designed to familiarize young players with the sport of Water Polo in a safe and age-appropriate environment. Participants develop improved motor and water polo skills, while learning about the core concepts of teamwork.
