EXPLORE THE WORLD WITH WATER POLO
Do you ever find yourself sacrificing your family holiday so your child doesn’t miss out on water polo?
Tired of paying for camps that show no improvement?
Destination Beach Water Polo was created so your family can have the best of both worlds. You will enjoy a 5-star family holiday with plenty of perks, while the athletes take advantage of 6 day training camp that purely focuses on skill and performance development.
Our expert coaches are on site 24/7, and will each have their own small group of athletes to mentor and guide over the 6 days. Identifying goals, creating plans, learning new skills and seizing opportunities are just a few of the areas that coaches will focus on in a wide variety of sessions. While the kids are busy becoming better athletes, parents and siblings are free to enjoy the day however they wish in a 5 star, world-renowned hotel resort.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
MEET THE COACHES
Destination Beach Water Polo Fours has secured the services of some of the most decorated players in Australia to facilitate our trip. While the playing experience our coaches have is second to none, more importantly they are fun, outgoing and very easy to communicate with. We want to impart on our participants our love of water polo and help develop skills that can last a life time.

Goal Keeper Coach and Tour Manager
Michaela has so many incredible achievements on her CV that we actually had to pick which ones to include. She is our forever smiling, expert travel manager who can organise a water polo tour with her eyes closed. When she isn't busy sending copious amounts of emails about water polo, Michaela is at the pool playing or coaching it. She is a pro when she gets in the water, but her bubbly attitude and energetic personality make her not only the perfect coach, but great friend to players of any age.
Water Polo Coach & Environmental Scientist
Michael “Rosie” Rosenthal has a water polo CV that is second to none. Achieving five back to back national championships with the USC Trojans during his time at college, Rosie has travelled the world playing the game he loves. Michael is extremely passionate about the environment and is looking forward to imparting his knowledge of oceans and ecosystems to our participants as well as his extensive water polo experience. For any participants interested, Rosie can also provide valuable information and insight to the NCAA recruiting process.

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS…
Beach Water Polo Fours was founded in 2017 as an event to get people trying water polo, bring back the players of yesteryear who had disappeared and to create a fun, new and enjoyable way to play the game we all love.
We recognised that water polo was a tough sport to start as an adult, and that people were time poor and unable to commit to weekly games and training sessions. On the other hand, holding closed events in council pools was never going to grow the profile of the sport.
We exist to create fun and memorable water polo experiences for every age and ability, with a focus on fun and progression to promote the game we love to as many people as possible!

Sport is for all and we strive to give everybody a fair go.
