Our best to all in the pursuit of their higher education and water polo!

Michael Goldenberg "  

I think overall it was good. But some glitches I have to work on.
Most of the coaches liked it and wanted to know if it is happening next year. A lot of athletes and parents thank me for organizing it.
So, December 8 - 9 , 2018 is the next one. I will make it work.  "

*ODP

We will be running an ODP identification tournament in Dec where we will invite teams to compete in the ODP age groups both boys and girls. This will be a 3-4 game/team event in a round robin format. The purpose is ODP Staff to identify potential athletes and offer an invitation to them to attend the ODP Zone selection camp in January. This replaces one of the two camps in Florida yet increase playing opportunities for teams. If a team is not involved and there are kids that still want to be identified we will put together teams in a random draw to compete. An ODP coach will step in to guide them through the tournament. We will be securing a facility and posting it online within the next few days.   

 

**ODP Camps

There will be one more camps for you to attend in Boca Raton, FL. You may register for those camps at any time through www.usawaterpolo.org.

 

*** South Florida Combine

This event will be hosted by South Florida WPC and will be held at the Pompano Beach Aquatic Complex. All inquires will be directed to Michael Goldenberg email: igolden438@aol.com
