DWPC Youth coaches combine for 150+ years of experience, are USAWP & SafeSport certified, and trained in coaching the USAWP system.  They combine to be the largest, most experienced, and most recognized coaching staff in Georgia - and beyond.  Their #1 priority is the development of whole people, not just water polo players.

We are excited to announce additional coaches soon.
