If you are taking your waterpolo seriously, this is the one camp you just cannot afford to miss. SPR Travel, one of the largest operators of aquatic sports camps in Europe, is organizing a special camp aimed at young American waterpolo players who want to improve their game by training with a top European coach and having a great time in the process.
This is no ordinary waterpolo camp. Each session is taken personally by coach Marco Risso who comes with more 25 years experience coaching in Italy. He is currently head coach at President Bologna, a Serie A side, as well as a coaches’ coach at the famed Italian Waterpolo Academy. He has coached and mentored many players who have later gone on to become Olympic, World and European champions.
Alongside Marco we will have experienced Spanish international player and European champion, Sergi Mora who will get into the pool with you during practice sessions.
But waterpolo training with these guys is only half the story. Malta is a unique island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea with 7000 years of history, including the oldest free standing buildings in the world. And then there is the snorkelling, the 600hp speedboat rides and the open top bus ride. The camp dates are from the 31st July to the 8th August 2018. There are only 26 places available in the camp to ensure that every single participant is given maximum attention.
We invite you to scroll down through our website to get a better understanding of what we offer and meet the guys you will be working with. If you have any other questions email our camp director at firstname.lastname@example.org
The camp is an eight day intensive course covering every aspect of the game of waterpolo run by world class coach and administrators.
ALL training sessions are carried out by coach Marco while Sergi gets into the water and scrimmages with you. We also arrange scrimmaging against Maltese teams of the same age groups.
Besides the training you will also have the opportunity to see live games in the pro Maltese national championships where some of the very top names in world waterpolo come to play during the summer season.
The camp will be under the direct supervision of co-camp director Paul Micallef
SPR handled all our logistics during our stay in Malta for our Champions League group games. Perfection is the best word I can think of to describe their service and approach. Nothing was too much for them. The general comment by our athletes, which included Olympians and World Champions, was that this was the best and most enjoyable trip of their professional career.
