Why Kids Need SplashballTM
SplashballTM is designed to introduce the sport of water polo to children 5-12 years old. The intent is to provide basic skills and understanding of the sport in a recreational format. Although water polo is known for its toughness and endurance, SplashballTM harnesses all the fun, dynamic aspects of the game in a safe, easy to learn aquatic experience that will motivate kids to swim and stay fit.

However, if when you registered you were not sure about who to register with and selected the 2018 Splashball - At Large club, please contact USAWP directly, and we will help either create a new club/location for you, or find the most appropriate one to assign you (facilitator) or your child to.
