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!

The Chicago Water Polo Showcase is entering its 12th year of existence. The goal of the clinic is to introduce Midwest area athletes to the college-level instruction from current NCAA and National Team Coaches, while also educating athletes on what it takes to be recruited and successful at the college level. Athletes must be entering at minimum their 10th Grade year in high school and be prepared for rigorous college-level instruction. Athletes will receive position-specific training for: Goalies, Centers, Defenders, and Attackers.
Athletes will also be given the opportunity to learn about the college recruiting process in a classroom setting and be evaluated by a diverse group of college coaches; including Divisions 1, 2, and 3.
