A Note From Adam:
Thank you for your interest in the Stars & Stripes Bruin Water Polo Club.
I have long sought to bring the world's best training philosophies and methods to youth water polo in the United States, and beginning in January of 2013 my colleagues and I will be launching a new kind of water polo club on UCLA's campus. We invite you to join and grow with us.
Our mission is to create a one of a kind academy with the goal of providing our members the necessary tools to reach their maximum potential in age group water polo. Our focus is to help our players to be both mentally and physically healthy, based in part upon an innovative and unique injury prevention program that is specific to water polo.
Our methodology is centered upon building the strength to master movements required to excel in our game, conditioning the mind to react in pressure situations, teaching techniques to ensure each athlete minimizes the risk of injury, and coaching the fundamentals that are necessary to succeed in our sport.
We began practices at the UCLA Spieker Aquatics Center on Monday, January 7. We currently have 2 training groups and each group trains in the UCLA pool 3 nights per week. If you are interested in playing please register with the club and attend an evaluation practice where you will be assigned to a training group based on your experience and current skills.
Adam Wright, Head Coach
