Interested in Hosting a Water Polo Camp in your area? I Love Water Polo is the program for you!

What is "I Love Water Polo"?

"I Love Water Polo" (ILWP) is Water Polo Canada's introductory, grass roots water polo program for boys and girls ages 8-12 (although easily adaptable for younger or older age groups, or even adults). In a learn-to-play environment , similar to swimming lessons, participants discover the game of water polo, and the basic skills involved in aquatic sports. The ILWP program also helps to enhance the participants swimming, balance, and coordination skills. No prior water polo experience is required . The only pre-requisite is that participants should be able to swim one width of the pool.
