About the Junior GB Water Polo Programme
Thousands of children go through the ASA’s club structure every year but only a handful ever progress to national water polo squads. Read to learn about a pathway to ensure this changes.
The ASA has a development pathway to ensure that once a young person’s talent is identified it is nurtured to help them reach their full potential as well as a specific Water Polo Talent Development programme.
This takes youngsters who have already shown promise in water polo and gives them access to quality coaching, athlete educational schemes and sports science within a training camp environment that will prepare them for future international competition.
Players must achieve certain levels of attainment which includes swimming, basic technique and game awareness to be selected onto the development programmes.
They then receive varying support depending on their level but this will include training camps, anthropological measurements and lifestyle management.
Players who excel at the national level may progress to being selected by British Swimming to join their World Class development programme.
