learning aquatic sports
2010 and younger
The program is designed for children who love the water. Join us to have fun, to be active, and to throw a ball around. The practices include instruction on the basic principles of waterpolo - egg beater, hold a ball, throwing a ball, catching a ball, shooting a ball – and of the game. In addition, starting in 2019-2020 we offer the basic principles of competition strokes so kids can extend their aquatic experiences. Friendly games and in house competitions are part of our practice time.This program corresponds to the FUNdamentals and Technical Foundation phases of the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model
Locations: Verdun, Lasalle & Beaconsfield

my first team & competitions
swim & Waterpolo
The co-ed recreational waterpolo program consists of teams that are grouped by age (U10, U12, U14). We participate in the pamplemousses league (Nov-May), attend the jeux de montreal (April) and other invitational tournaments. Travel generally around the island of montreal. Activities are sanctioned by Waterpolo Quebec. Teams wear a uniform (swimsuit and t-shirt). Athletes can play in one or more teams if they choose.
The swim program will permit individuals to attend a swim competition in their local area organized by Swimming Quebec. This is a pilot project with support from our Community partners.
Children should be comfortable in the water and must be able to swim one width of the pool. A flotation device can be provided, the goal is to improve and develop swimming and waterpolo skills leading to regular team play without flotation devices.
