We believe everyone benefits from Increased access to Sports. Thats why our team is driven to increase access to Youth Sports while creating innovative WP Equipment and Experiences for everyone. 

We are proud of ALL our Events, Products, and Programs. In 2017 we started running Clinics & Camps across the country and saw a need for increased access to Water Polo programs in West Florida - So we moved to Tampa and began our Journey! As our programs grew, we saw a need for increased access to competition, so we hosted events! As our events grew, we saw a need for Quality Team Gear & WP Products, so now we make it all ourselves!

WE WANT TO MAKE WATER POLO ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE!
