Summer water polo program
Submitted By Danielle Hess
Water polo is a fast paced, physically aggressive, and highly strategic team sport. With commitment in developing the sport of water polo in the East Bay Area, the Newark Crocker Water Polo (NCWP) club will open its doors for practices beginning at the end of this month.
Newark Crocker Water Polo is aimed at teaching young student-athletes - ages 12-18 - of all experience levels the fundamentals of the game, as well as refining their technique, building their endurance, and teaching them the essential team tactics to the sport.
While swimming is an important aspect of water polo, it is only one aspect of the sport, and the Newark Crocker Water Polo welcomes any and all athletes interested in the sport, regardless of their swimming ability. In this, the first season of NCWP, all the coaches are committed to creating a fun, energetic and encouraging atmosphere in and out of the pool; they are hoping you join in on the experience this summer.
Practice begins Monday, May 30, and will continue through July 28. Sessions will be held Monday through Thursday, from 7-9 p.m. in the Newark Memorial High School pool on Cedar Boulevard in Newark. NCWP anticipates participating in several competitive games this summer as well; schedule to be announced at a later date.
To take part in the first season of the Newark Crocker Water Polo club, you can either signup in advance or, once practice begins on May 30, you are welcome to drop in on a daily basis. For the full session, cost is $250; on a daily basis, cost is $10.
