Our Water Polo Development Squad is designed to support those club members with less playing experience become more involved within the sport through developing their playing technique, tactical understanding of the game and aquatic fitness to cope with game-based scenarios. With all sessions based at the Lancaster University Sports Centre and led by Head Coach, Marc Robinson, the Development Squad members are expertly guided through sessions to promote a relaxed training environment and the improvement of our players through a committed approach to sessions.
The Water Polo Development Squad training hours include 3 pool sessions per week, totalling 4 hours. We also offer a weekly circuits sessions for all LUSWP club members, whilst the Development Squad players are also able to participate in the gym sessions alongside the Water Polo Performance Squad.
