Illinois Water Polo will be holding a college water polo “recruiting 101” session on Monday, January 28th @ 7pm in the Naperville Central Learning Commons. All athletes, coaches, and parents are invited to attend. Our target audience is probably sophomores and juniors, but there’s still time for seniors who have still not made a firm decision about their next step.
This free seminar is designed to introduce members of the Illinois Water Polo community to the basics of the college process: registering with the NCAA, your high school coach’s role in the process, contacting college coaches, scholarship myths & realities, varsity vs. club, etc. This is strictly informative; this is not a recruiting service, there’s no sales pitch, and no cost.
Naperville Central High School
440 W. Aurora Ave
Enter school at Door 1 on Aurora Ave, not the pool entrance. There will be signs inside the main entrance directing you to the Learning Commons.
We’ll absolutely take drop-ins, but it would be helpful for planning purposes if some attendees would pre-register.
During the week of 3/18 through 3/24, Illinois Water Polo and the Metro Catholic Aquatics’ will be hosting the Dave Perry College Scholarship Awareness Week.
This week will be used to promote the scholarship and alert more coaches, parents, and athletes about this great opportunity.
Donations are always accepted, but even just posting the flyer at your pool is tremendously helpful during this week.
The Dave Perry College Scholarship Fundraiser will again take place at O’Sullivan’s in Forest Park at 6pm. This informal fundraiser is a great opportunity to help support the scholarship while catching up with water polo friends, families, and teammates!
