USSC, Nike and 5 Meter Water Polo have teamed up with one of the greats of world water polo, World and Olympic gold medallist Tamas Marcz, to bring you an experience of a lifetime on the enchanting island of Malta in the Mediterranean. 

The camp will consist of no more than 22 participants as we want to make sure that each and every camper gets the personal attention he or she deserves. Campers will train each day at the Birzebbuga Pool in Pretty Bay, Birzebbuga and the hotel where campers will reside is called Water’s Edge. The hotel and pool is a 5 minute walk away from each other across the beach. 

Camp co-ordinator Richard Micallef said “We are proud and excited to have been chosen by Nike and 5 Meter Water Polo as their first partners outside the US. The name Nike is a guarantee of excellence and we are geared up to provide such a service, both from the coaching and the organisational point of view. We have hosted campers from all over Europe in the past and we now look forward to welcoming young US water polo players to our country and our camp. Tamas is an outstanding coach and a dream to work with. His experience, love of the game and his winner’s mentality is bound to have a long lasting effect on our campers.”

CAMP DETAILS

PRETTY BAY, BIRZEBBUGA IN MALTA

This is a camp with a difference. Besides getting to train with one of the top coaches in Europe, campers get to enjoy the incredible attractions you can find in Malta – seven thousand year old buildings, a capital city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and St. John’s Cathedral, considered by many as the most beautiful church in the world. And then there is the snorkelling in crystal clear waters and the 600HP speedboat rides.

But first and foremost it’s about the water polo. This is an intense ten day programme in which campers cover all aspects of the game of water polo with a legend who has done it right at the very top. Besides the daily pool sessions, campers get to scrimmage with local water polo teams and watch top European pros in action in the Maltese Premier League.
