I usually thank my followers..for well…following me but dianosaurusrexx 1. you dont have an “Ask” button on your page. 2. I feel this topic regrading water polo scholarships would be beneficial for other people as well. So I might as well make it a proper post and I say all this from my knowledge as a coach at a high school.
Regarding water polo scholarships: Well first off, water Polo doesn’t have very much funding for scholarships because its not a very popular sport in comparison to basketball or football. Its rather seldom that they award full scholarships in water polo. So what a lot of schools do is they split their scholarships funding up. So I’ll use a hypothetical university as an example and their hypothetical budget is 10,000 just for water polo. Schooling is expensive and depending on the university you decide attend 10,000 would still leave you in a pretty large debt. And its very unlikely they’ll give the full 10 thousand to one student because what they do is split the funding to cover both male and female teams …and then split it even more to reach a wider range of students to keep them interested in playing at their university…Yes this may be a lil discouraging to know that scholarships in water polo are competitive but here is a tip and something to consider. 1. try to make captain it’ll show you can be a leader and this also helps you land other types of scholarships. 2. dedication speaks for itself and 3. Apply to east coast schools. Why? Well water polo is most popular here in California and a lot of the best teams are also here…and slowly its getting more popular on the east coast…so to even get on a team here in SoCal would be to the death! But if you were to consider an East Coast school , your chances of a scholarship are greater because they see players from California as a hot commodity ….Keep you options open and again thanks for the follow.
Btw that picture of the baby with the goalie cap on your page is adorable…but I cant decide whats cuter , the baby….or that miniature water polo ball …and where did they find that tiny goalie cap…so adorable.
