OAKS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL 31749 LA TIENDA RD. WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA 91362

collegiate water polo showcase

Sponsored by Kap 7

Cost: $295 

 

About the camp:

It is time to showcase your water polo talent and share your academic achievements with your potential future university coaches.  You will have the chance to be seen by over 20 different collegiate coaches at the same time.  The OC showcase will provide an opportunity to rising sophomores ('22), juniors ('21), and seniors ('20) to display their talents, academic transcripts, and test scores via a recruitment packet.  The goal is to separately allow underclassmen the opportunity to be recognized by college programs well before their senior year.  In addition, rising seniors will receive the chance to show off their talents in the water as well as meet the college coaches after the session.  

Prior to this event, all athletes will be able to complete a RECRUITMENT PACKET to present to the coaches.  The packet will consist of a profile sheet, HS transcripts, ACT/SAT test scores, and a water polo IQ test.  This packet can also be used to deliver to coaches who are not present at the showcase. 

The OC Showcase will consist of a 3-hour game-like session that will include skills, drills, and situational scrimmaging.  College coaches want to see how your reactions in game-like situations, awareness of the game,  and playing under pressure.
