Sarasota United Youth Water Polo



Whether you are a seasoned player or today is your first day, you will learn and have fun in the pool. Athletes can try a practice any time for free, and join the club mid-session.

We provide an open learning environment for beginning athletes and offer the opportunity to reach the highest levels of competition according to personal desire and commitment. Practice attendance is encouraged but not required.

For competitive players, we support athlete development and goals with program components built from the USAWP Olympic Development Program and Eastern European methodologies. Tournament participation is encouraged.
