Rose Bowl Water Polo offers instruction and competitive opportunities for players at all ages and all experience levels.  Practice groups and competition rosters are structured to support player development at each age group.

Intro To Water Polo

Intro to water polo is for boys and girls from 9-14 years old.  Participants will learn the rules and fundamentals of water polo as they gain endurance, build confidence, and learn to work as a team. Practice are offered at the RBAC two nights a week for 1 hour each.  At the end of each month, participants will play a game at the aquatics center.

Age Groups

Rose Bowl Water Polo determines age group based on the USA Water Polo age cut off of August 1st.  Practice and competition groups will be based primarily on age.  We provide groups for 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U players. Players will be placed based on their age as of August 1st rather than their age as of today.  Within most age groups, red and black practice groups will be created in order to best support player development.        

Red and Black Groups

In our 12, 14, 16, and 18U groups, we offer Red and Black practice groups for players at different points in their development.  Placement in these groups will be at the coaches discretion based on player evaluation.  Practice schedules for these groups can be found here or on the schedules tab to the left.  Two or three nights per week will be conditioning and two or three nights per week will be water polo skills  Instruction is focused on refining fundamentals and the development of team concepts for competitive rosters.  Red and Black rosters will be selected for competiton at development and championship events.     

High School Prep Group 

Our high school prep group is targeted at high school aged players that are new to club water polo and/or are primarily focused on preparing for their CIF water polo season.  Practices are offered four to five nights be week with an expectation of two practices.  Instruction focuses on key fundamentals and introduction to our system of play.  Players compete in local leagues and one day events.    

Splashball

All athletes at the age of 10 or younger will start in Splashball.  Splashball is an activity that takes place in the shallow end of the recreational pool two nights per week.  Participants are required to be water safe, but are allowed to use a water noodle to help them as they develop their skills.
