The USA Water Polo National League is the highest level of competition in the country. Participants include the very best athletes of Olympic Club, New York Athletic Club, Alumni, collegiate squads, and teams comprised of our Men's National Team, Junior Team, and Youth Team.

Our social initiative is to grow the sport of water polo everywhere, including the strength of our National Team and Olympic Development programs. Since our first appearance in 2017, we decided to help foster youth development by providing 18 & Under athletes an opportunity they've never had before - to play with and against full grown men.

If you desire to improve as a player, the best way to do so is to play with people who are bigger, faster, stronger, and smarter than you are. This is the quintessential opportunity for youth players to get in quality game experience before entering their first college season. Not only will they receive coaching from our head coach and athletes, but it is a great platform to be seen by college and National Team staff.

Players will also undergo a conditioning and skills clinic, and up to 5 athletes will be selected and be rostered on the LAAC Water Polo Master Roster in National League. Additional players may be selected to continue participating in exclusive team trainings, and 2nd team tournament entries.

Players will be evaluated by our coaching staff and will be assessed by the following criteria:

-Coachability

-Attitude

-Defense

-Conditioning

-Physicality

-Anticipation

-Body positioning

-Ball handing

-Speed

-Creativity 

-Effectiveness

We hope to see you there!
