Team Alberta Philosophy
Alberta Water Polo Association
Team Alberta is dedicated to athlete development. We provide level appropriate training to all levels as well as exposing athletes to competition in a controlled environment. Team Alberta will incorporate a holistic approach to training, including basic dry land training, swimming conditioning, basic water polo skills and life skills (travel management, nutrition, tactics and video review).
Team Alberta will select the players who show the highest level of effort, competitiveness, coachability, and skill. Team Alberta will also take into consideration players who have shown the most development through training, who demonstrate responsibility, and who would benefit most from participating.
Team Alberta coaches will decide play time based on a number of variables including but not limited to : external conditions such as heat, and game schedule, individual factors such as injuries or illness, and tournament importance. While Team Alberta is a competitive program, it also has a focus on development for all players.
