Summer Academy


"A high performance water polo program in Barcelona, Spain, designed for all those local and internacional athletes hungry to get in the pool"

In light of the exceptional COVID-19 world health crisis, we have launched the Summer Academy, a high performance summer water polo program designed to make up for all the weeks that we have been away from the pool. 

The sports program will be led by Olympic coach Quim Colet and will follow the same methodology that has proven a success for the past decade in Spain. We focus on the fundamentals, the individual skills, technique, and tactics.
