PROGRAM

The Futures program was created in cooperation with Global Wave Inc. and USA Water Polo to provide an opportunity for selected water polo athletes to grow and develop in an international competitive environment. This High Performance Program creates an environment for selected USA athletes to continue with USAWP ODP Program and be considered based on their performance for the next year ODP evaluation and selection for National Teams. The selected athletes will have the opportunity to be seen, coached and evaluated by USWP National Team staff. We want these athletes to continue their sport growth and development and to acquire international competition and experience while still being in the National Team process.
