Testimonials

My son has attended five water polo clinics/camps in the last year and he enjoyed the Azevedo Academy the most. The coaching staff of Tony & Rico Azevedo, Merrill Moses and Brenda Villa was the best. When Tony was in the water demonstrating skills and techniques and also during his talks with the players, his passion and love for water polo were apparent and infectious. Tony is inspirational and made my son believe that if he works hard, he can achieve his dreams. This belief is the key to succeeding in athletics as well as in life. My son is definitely looking forward to attending the next Academy. Dennis Knaus Father of 2016 Winter Academy Participant
I wanted to say how grateful I am that the Azevedo Academy donated a spot in the clinic to USA Water Polo. The opportunity this donation provided me with was fantastic! I can't say enough about how much I learned. Although tough, having four days in the pool to build on was really super. For me as a goalie, the highlight was spending so much time in the water with Merrill Moses. He not only improved my technique but gave me the chance to play with the guys and face more difficult and different shots that I had ever faced before. Rachel Anderson 2016 Winter Academy Participant
Lauren thoroughly enjoyed the Academy and meeting new players. It was fantastic to see so many of the best water polo players and coaches in the world on deck and in the water with the players. We really got a lot from the talks about good nutrition, time with the trainer, dry land workouts, and advice about balancing sport with other interests and school. Hearing from Tony and Brenda that it is possible to have a thorough high school experience, and still stay focused and achieve longterm goals was very inspirational. Having multiple days of constant interaction with the coaches meant plenty of time to focus on different skills, and an invaluable amount of individual feedback for each player. Best of all, it was a great combination of competition and fun. Thank you so much! Jen Gaudry Mother of 2016 Winter Academy Participant
