The Capital Futures 12U Group is coed and designed for players aged 6-12. In this group young players learn the fundamentals of ball handling, technical water polo skills and are exposed to a variety of game experiences. Players who competed in summer JO Nationals need to contact the Head Coach for group assignments.
Competitions: Most 12U coeds will be requested to travel at times for regional competitions on the weekends during the Fall, Winter and Spring. Participants must be current on all membership registrations & requirements to play.
Tournament locations may include the Naval Academy (Annapolis, MD), Greenwich (CT), Princeton (NJ), Philadelphia (PA), Pittsburgh (PA) and Richmond (VA). All members must be current in membership registration, tournament fees, USA Water Polo membership and team requirements to participate.
Capital Water Polo also encourages parents to participate in the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics Qualifiers (May) and National Championships (end of July) and Haba Waba (mid July) and will invite and assign interested players to these rosters in March.
