ROYAL 559 WATER POLO ACADEMY is a competitive club that focuses on developing the complete athlete. Our mission is to develop young men and women of character and offer, through sport, the opportunity for each athlete to maximize their fullest potential. Athletes ages 9-18 will develop the fundamental technical skills and team tactics to be successful in our sport, as well as be exposed to the culture of water polo through programs that preach discipline, accountability and teamwork. Through this approach, we are rapidly becoming one of the top clubs in the Nation. More information can be found on our About Us page.

Spring Session for our 10U, 12U, and 14U athletes is a time to build upon skills and tactics learned during our Fall and Winter sessions an apply them in an increased number competition opportunities. This is an especially critical time for our athletes to gain game experience in preparation for our very competitive summer. Each group will practice 3 times per week with additional opportunities to train and compete "up" with older age-groups and be mentored by older athletes at no extra charge.
Boys & Girls 10U/12U
Spring is when our 16U and 18U girls continue their deveopment through weekly practices and by competing at the ODP National Championships and the Cal Cup State Finals. We also recognize that many have significant obligations to high school swim teams and other activities which may limit their time available for water polo practices.
During spring our 16U and 18U boys focus mostly on swimming for their high school teams. They may also have periodic weekend scrimmages. Contact Coach Kaufmann (16U Boys) or Coach Maes (18U Boys) for more details.
If you have any questions, please email Coach Brooks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
