Windy City Water Polo (Oak Park, IL) and Alumni Water Polo (Granite Bay CA) will be hosting a water polo clinic at Fenwick High School for high school boys and girls as well as age group boys and girls on Saturday, January 12 and Sunday, January 13. Athletes can register for one or two days. Alumni Water Polo has come to Illinois three out of the last four years to run camps using Fenwick as the host site, and they have always done a great job. In the past, Br. Rice graduate, Joey Franz, has participated as a clinician. Franz, a former goalie for the University of the Pacific water polo team competes with the Alumni Water Polo team in California. There will be six clinicians here this year. Each as NCAA or National Team experience!
Camp registration information can also be found at: https://alumniwaterpolo.
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!
