Scottish Water Polo Academy – Tollcross

Designed to help develop players’ core skills such that they can train and play at a higher level.   

Academy Requirements:

  • Ages 11-16 (2002+ oldest) boys and girls
  • Must be current SASA member

The coaching is from a mix of Guest Coaches (Scottish and former Scottish Coaches and Players) working with local club’s coaches.   

  • Session Plans for all Scottish Academies are centrally pre-planned for the entire term
  • Some sessions will include testing (as was done last term) with aim of emphasizing improvement in key skills
  • Guest Coaches (Senior Experienced coaches, National Team members, and more) will be brought in to lead many of the sessions to bring greater experience and excitement.   There will also be a small team of coaches at the Academy weekly to assist guest coaches.    
  • A competition between the Academies will take place at the end of the term
  • The Academy will include specialized higher intensity  training for 15 and 16 year olds (2002, 2003), age 11 – 16 for Academy
  • Coaching development will also be taking place with the coaches participating – via a semi-formal mix of guided learning, coaching resource & working with guest coaches
  • Minimum Entry Standards (11-14 year olds) – 200 crawl without stopping and decent technique for age, able to eggbeater with correct motion and keep chin out for 60 seconds.  
  • Minimum Entry Standards ( 15 & 16 ) year olds will need to be strong swimmers and already have decent core skills.   
  • Coaches will evaluate players and if need be send them back to the club with clear instructions about what to fix to return to the Academy.
