What Parents Are Saying
“My wife and I didn’t come from an organized sports background so everything about water polo was new to us. We’ve been with the OCWPC for about 8 months now and since probably the second week, we knew it was one of the best things we’ve ever done for our kids. We’ve got a daughter on the 12U Girls team, a son on the 10U Coed team and a 7 year old who comes to every practice and can’t wait until his chops are good enough for game time. The parents are supportive of each other, the kids are rad, the coaches are amazing, the games – boy – crazy fun with lots of ups and downs. What’s really neat is that the game gives us a chance to have awesome conversations with the kids about life. About not giving up, listening, patience, endurance, staying in shape – and – wait for it – the right to kick some butt in the water. It’s a game after all! Go OC! See you at the pool!” - Jesse B.

“The objective of the club is to recruit athletes at a young age and focus on developing a solid foundation of technical and tactical practice, patience, and persistence, the three “Ps” of water polo which translate into important life lessons for the years to come. The club is committed towards coaching at all levels of the sport, primarily focusing on developing elite athletes. We strongly encourage participation before 12 years of age, with 8 years of age being the ideal.
Our primary focus is the development of young athletes into adult champions rather than attempting to recruit adult champions. The club plans to provide coaching throughout all the age groups.
Consider that when constructing a solid building, the engineer will begin with a solid foundation at the basement, not at the roof or on the second floor. It is crucial that athletes receive good instruction at a young age. This will ensure they will develop good habits and reach their optimum potential.” – Head Coach Petar Asic
