    ODP

    Overview

    Purpose
    The Olympic Development Program will serve as a forum to identify and develop athletes to represent USA Water Polo throughout domestic and international competition. The foundation of the program is a systematic approach to athlete development through a training program that focuses on both the technical and tactical components of water polo while placing a premium on overall physical fitness. This program will also provide a forum where coaches and referees are provided with professional development and to the vision of our Men and Women's Senior National Team coaches.

    Objective
    Change from a short-term focus on competition to a long-term emphasis on improvement through a training program that will increase the development and performance of athletes, coaches, and referees.

    Goal
    The goal is to identify and develop athletes at the USAWP club level and then integrating them into national team pipeline via the Olympic Development Program.
