Triton recreational teams offer local athletes a unique and low-key place to train year-round with high-quality coaching and professional-level training. Players are expected to play with integrity and perform at standards set by our coaching staff. Team workouts are designed to prepare athletes to compete in high school and college while instilling values that will last a lifetime. Players are allowed to participate in local tournaments and develop their skills. The idea of team sport and social development is deeply embedded in our team philosophy. This shapes our younger athletes to work with our older players set as role models to create a bond that promotes a team that plays with and for each other.

Coaching Staff

The Triton Water Polo coaching staff includes former USA National Team Members, NCAA National Champions, College and High School All-Americans, and current local Varsity High School Coaches. Each of our coaches works hard to ensure that their players develop the skills needed to be successful in water polo and, most importantly, as individuals. Our coaches take pride in building individual athletic skills and team concepts such as leadership and communication to ensure our athletes progress and participate in all age groups and skill levels. We believe in building a greater Tri-Valley Water Polo community and strive to connect our players, parents, and coaches to improve our players' bright futures


WEEKDAY PRACTICE STRUCTURE

Athletes will participate in 3 practices per week (6 Practice Hours). Practices will be structured with individual development in skills with station work or structured based team practices.  Recreational athletes have the option to add swimming and strength training to supplement their water polo practices. The additional training adds 2 practices per week (4 practice hours)​​​​​.

Private Lessons

Athletes will have the opportunity to book one 30-minute private lesson at no cost with one of our coaches to help further their development. Coaches will work one on one with athletes to fix shooting habits, work on positioning, game understanding, chalk talk, etc.

This will be exclusive to the recreational team athletes. After you have used your lesson, you can choose to continue them at the coaches availability.

Local Tournaments & Scrimmages

This training is where athletes can implement what they learn in practice and gain experience. Teams will participate in three local tournaments and various scrimmages with other local development teams. Local tournaments are usually within an hour's drive at most. Scrimmages will typically be on TuesdayThursdays. Travel tournaments will not be a part of this program. However, there may be an oppurtunity for individual athletes to participate in a travel tournament with a competition team.
