Our Water Polo Program’s Schedule and Fees

SwimRVA’s water polo club seasons last from early September to late July. Practices during this time are in the evening — usually from 7:15-8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We have found that this timeframe is best for students to attend their school day or other commitments while still being able to make it to practice. The program fees are monthly and include up to four practices per month.

Stay Active at Home With Our Virtual Training Center

Team members are only required to attend two out of four practices per month. While your child is away, have them use our virtual training center to stay fit when they can’t make it to practice or outside of practice on the weekends.

Koji made friends with teammates of all ages from elementary, middle, and high school as they all practice together. My son was not the fastest swimmer when he started but he developed both speed and endurance, and now he can tread water with his hands up in 7’7” deep water for who knows how long!? Not only did his Water Polo skills improve but we noticed he can now throw a football a lot further when he plays in the backyard due to the conditioning and practice he gets in Water Polo with his throwing arm.
