Kearns Training Programs
Kearns Water Polo Club has developed the following programs to tailor to your athlete's individual needs.
- Splashball: Beginning Athletes ages 5-9
- Jr. Water Polo: Beginning Athletes ages 10-14
- Age Group Water Polo: Athletes 14 & Under
- High School Water Polo: Athletes Grade 9-12
In an effort to better serve our beginning athletes, Kearns Water Polo has teamed up with KOPFC to provide the community with our Splashball Program. Splashball is designed to introduce young athletes to the great sport of water polo, in addition to providing them with the tools and skills needed to succeed when playing at higher levels. Our splashball course is taught in the shallow end of our Comp pool, ensuring that our athletes are challenged but never overwhelmed. This program will harness all the fun, dynamic aspects of the game in a safe, easy to learn environment that will motivate kids to swim and stay fit. To register for Splashball, please click here.
Jr. Water Polo
Designed as a stepping stone from Splashball to our Age Group Water Polo Program, Jr. Water Polo is a great option for those that are new to the sport and are between the ages of 10 and 14. In this program, athletes will learn all of the basics of the sport, making sure that they are ready to compete in higher levels when the time comes. This team practices in the deep end of our Comp Pool, so it is best if the athlete has some swimming experience. Our Jr. Water Polo program also hosts scrimmages once per month, giving our athletes a taste of what competition is like in higher levels. Click here for more information, click here to register.
Age Group Water Polo
Kearns' Age Group Training Program concentrates on developing the tools that athletes will need to achieve their athletic goals and personal potential. This program is for our athletes that are ready to compete in games against other clubs. Our age group program is split into 2 groups. The 12 & Under group will focus on long term athlete development, learning the basic water polo skills, and on developing their in game fundamentals. The 14 & Under group will focus on fine-tuning their water polo skills and fundamentals and begin to learn game tactics.
High School Water Polo
Our High School Training Program centers on providing training that will prepare athletes to have success at any level of play. Our high school program accommodates all athletes, from novice to experienced. This group is also comprised of athletes that attend high schools all over the Salt Lake Valley, not just those that attend Kearns High School. In this group, our practices focus on enhancing and strengthening our conditioning, introducing new skills, and learning advanced in-game tactics.
