Del Mar Water Polo Club’s 14 & under Girls Team recently had two girls selected to attend the USA Water Polo Olympic Development Program Holiday Camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Hannah Edwards, an 8th grader at Saint James Academy in Solana Beach, and Joelle McComb, an 8th grader at Rancho Santa Fe Middle School, will represent the Pacific Southwest Zone at the camp that runs from Dec. 6-10.
Each year 120 athletes and coaches from across the country have convened at the USA Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., to learn from the best coaches in the country. Both girls have participated in the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics with Del Mar Water Polo Club. The girls 14 and under team is currently seeking new members in grades 6-8 with any or no level of experience. All practices are held at Cathedral Catholic High School in Carmel Valley, and a new session is starting this month.
