Riverside Water Polo (RWP) Mission Statement:
RWP provides the most comprehensive water polo program in the Inland Empire. Our athletes develop the skills and experience for long-term success that is required to compete at a high level in high school and in college, through quality year-round coaching and competition. We develop our athletes’ swimming skills and fundamental water polo skills, while focusing on discipline, cooperation, responsibility, respect, commitment, composure and perseverance. We strive to help every individual athlete develop life skills that will greatly benefit themselves as well as their community.
Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results.
New Athletes - Beginners Monthly Programs
RWP accepts new athletes throughout the year. We have two programs for the beginner athlete: Splash Ball (6-13 yrs) and Futures (13-16 yrs). Splash Ball focuses to help the new athlete by first becoming water-safe, then we begin training in 'free-style' swim and egg-beating. Introduction to balls and cages along with the proper technique to pass and shooting follows. Our Futures program focuses on the next phase of the sport. Fundamentals and advanced skills are taught and it is geared to prepare the athlete for the "Year-Round Program," should they be ready. Practices are held at Riverside City College
