Introduce Your Kids To Water Polo With Splashball!
Early age is a time for experimentation and building skills. Water skills are particularly critical at this stage of development both for safety and to establish strength and flexibility in the water. Splashball is designed to introduce the sport of water polo to children. The intent is to provide basic skills and understanding of the sport in a recreational format. Although water polo is known for its toughness and endurance, Splashball harnesses all the fun, dynamic aspects of the game in a safe, easy to learn aquatic experience that will motivate kids to swim and stay fit. Splashball is also unique in aquatic sports in that it provides the team element that supports social development. Kids at this age expect their activities to have a social and interactive component.
A child must be a level 3 swimmer or higher to register, and even then, can still use flotation devices as needed such as noodles, swim belts, or lifejackets.
Core Benefits – Develop water safety skills – Cultivate health and fitness – Sample a new sport for which you may have a special talent or passion – Meet new friends in a safe, fun environment, that also teaches life lessons – Build endurance and muscle tone – Learn water polo basics designed by the US Olympic program.
