Black Thunder Water Polo Club is a new program determined to bring out the best in strength, technique, ability, and character in today’s young athletes. Designed for players with a wide range of experience, from the youth novice who has never touched a water polo ball, to the advanced club and high school player, Black Thunder’s experienced coaches and motivational techniques create a fun, positive atmosphere to learn and excel.
Founded in 2009, Black Thunder’s 18-and-under team made their debut last August at he Hawaiian Invitational, where they played against top international teams, including Brazil and Canada.
Currently we are running boys and girls 18-and-under and 16-and-under programs. Soon we will be expanding into a full-service club for all ages, with programs listed below:
Designed for ages as young as 5, the Little Thunder players learn Splashball. Designed by USA Water Polo, Splashball is a fun and non-competitive way to get kids excited about the sport and learn basic skills. Splashball is played in a shallow pool, so advanced swim skills are not necessary.

Teen level I – ages 12-17. For developing high school athletes.
Teen level II – ages 14-18. Our most advanced team level. For strong, high school Varsity level athletes.
