Oct 2014: Bushido Water Polo affiliates with H2O Academy.

The H2O Aquatic Academy develops aquatic literacy in children aged 6 months to 12 years old. Their program is holistic and more than a "learn to swim" program - They develop fundamental aquatic skills, knowledge, and attitudes in the physical, mental, and creative domains.

The Academy builds the foundation so that if your child decides to go down the aquatic sport pathway, they will have the necessary skills and knowledge required to set them up for success as an elite athlete should they choose to be. The Academy works in partnership with 3 aquatic sport affiliates to identify early talent and ensure seamless integration into the aquatic sport pathway. Bushido Water Polo is one of these affiliates.
