Water Polo Camps
Due to high demand, many camps fill prior to the registration deadline and early registration is recommended. Once a camp reaches capacity or the registration deadline, we are unable to add additional campers. Walk-up registrations are not accepted for any camp or clinic.
In the event a camp does not reach capacity, the following registration deadlines apply:
- Residential camps close 2 days prior to the camp.
- Day camps and clinics close at 11:59pm the night before camp.

The Elite Spring Clinic is for the serious athlete who has aspirations to play at the college level. The sessions will focus on individual skill development, team tactics and team play.

The session will be intense and designed to push each camper past their comfort zone in order to improve their overall play.
Summer CAMP OVERVIEW
The goal of our camps is to provide the best water polo experience we can for your child. For this reason we limit the size of the camps and insure that our staff has a high level of experience. The Princeton water polo program has won the Eastern Championship three times in the past four years, twice with the men and once with the women. Both programs are continuously ranked in the top 20 annually. Head coach Luis Nicolao has been named coach of the year on numerous occasions, has played and coached at the National level and has coached 16 collegiate All-Americans. Assistant Coach Derek Ellingson brings a tremendous amount of experience as well, he played on every level and coached high school to Club to College. He was the head coach of Queens College before Princeton where he coached two Olympians. Volunteer Coach Momir Ivetic played club water polo in his home country of Serbia and in Russia he also played college water polo for St. Francis college and years of international playing experience. The Princeton staff along with current collegiate players, other college coaches and some of the top high school coaches in the country will insure that your child has a memorable experience at camp.
