The Chicago Water Polo Showcase is entering its 11th year of existence. The goal of the clinic is to introduce Midwest area athletes to the college-level instruction from current NCAA and National Team Coaches, while also educating athletes on what it takes to be recruited and successful at the college level. Athletes must be entering at minimum their 10th Grade year in high school and be prepared for rigorous college-level instruction. Athletes will receive position-specific training for: Goalies, Centers, Defenders, and Attackers.
Athletes will also be given the opportunity to learn about the college recruiting process in a classroom setting and be evaluated by a diverse group of college coaches; including Divisions 1, 2, and 3.
