New Students

The purpose of the La Mirada Shaquatics Water Polo Club is to provide high quality training in an environment that promotes teamwork, good character, and having fun learning a great sport.

Through our partnership with Splash La Mirada, all students new to our program start in either the Polo Buddies or the Fundamentals of Water Polo class. Polo Buddies (Ages 7 - 15) is for students who would like smaller class sizes and more personalized instruction. Fundamentals of Water Polo (Ages 10 - 15) is for students who are comfortable learning in a larger group class.
