Strength Development Program: Stanford Strength Coach, Stephen DiLustro, will be offering a strength development program this session for our high school level athletes. Coach DiLustro currently trains the Men's Water Polo Team at Stanford University. The program is designed for athletes who have a background in strength training and are looking to engage in a challenging conditioning program. This program will be open to high school level athletes only. Workouts will be at Stanford University.

The Strength Development Program is a unique opportunity for our club athletes to strength train for the physical demands of water polo. The focus is on the development of each athlete's strength, power, and flexibility, all fundamental components necessary for high-level athletic performance. Athletes will learn how to safely build strength and agility while performing challenging and exciting workout routines in a controlled and educational environment.
