Visalia Water Polo Academy is focused on sharing our love of the game of water polo with our community.  Over the last 8 years, we have had the joy of teaching the game to all ability levels of student-athletes.  Many times, we have started by teaching our players how to swim. And sometimes we have had exceptionally talented athletes who have made it all the way to the USA National Team.  At the Academy, we teach sound fundamentals and help our athletes progress through mastering individual techniques and learning to work within a team to execute team tactics and strategies.  We love teaching the game to new players of any age, and any athletic ability.  Our coaches are kind and patient while also requiring accountability and effort.  We are accustomed to diverse groups of student-athletes where there is a mix of athletic, non-athletic, attention challenged, overly social, non-social, verbal and non-verbal players.

We understand the unique physical and mental challenges of water polo can help young men and women build high character and become increasingly motivated in all areas of their lives.  Our goal is to see our student-athletes gain confidence by mastering a physical skill and contributing to the success of their team.

If you are a middle school student and have registered for the SOVA - Visalia Water Polo Academy's Free Middle School Program, the paid Fall Session will give you a head start on learning basic water polo skills and improving your swimming.   The Fall Session has age group practice for boys and girls 10 & Under, 12 & Under and 14 & Under.  The 16U and 18U age groups will start up again in November, after the high school water polo season.
