July School Holidays Training Camp

Canberra Water Polo Academy will be holding a training camp during the July School Holidays. Training camps have proven to be a very successful training opportunity to help players make improvements in an intensive structure.

The purpose of the camp is to help develop specific skills in game play, position specific play and decision making in specific situations. Its also a great opportunity to strengthen our relationships with surrounding areas with Southern Sports Academy joining us for the 2 day camp. There will be a movie night on Saturday night giving players and opportunity to catch up and build relationships in a social setting.

During the camp we will be holding our New Zealand Tour (Pan Pacs tour) information session where players and parents will be able to attend to get initial information about the tour. We are 12 months out from the tour and this is a great opportunity to for us to being preparations to ensure our tour in 2016 is the best one yet!
