Splashball: The Splashball program is led by Coach Brad Gould and is intended for players in 5th grade or younger. This program focuses on introducing the sport to players at a young age and focuses on learning the fundamentals.

DUES:
As this club has no affiliation to Ransom Everglades School, our club charges annual dues to cover basic operation costs: pool rental fees, equipment, coaching fee, tournament fees, and all other club costs. In January, we send electronic invoices via Square so you can pay online with a credit or debit card, or you have the option to mail a check. Dues vary in amount based on the age of the player and prorated amounts are available.

What to bring to practice: suit, towel, goggles, water bottle, full workout attire, socks and sneakers.


Weather Policy: The lightning radar alerts us when lightning strikes within an 8 mile radius. At that time, everyone needs to exit the pool and clear the pool deck. If that happens, practice moves to the gym where we do a dry land workout until the all clear alert is given (30 minutes after the last lightning strike within 8 miles). If we do a full hour of dry land, and the lightning is still within 8 miles, we will let the kids leave at that time.
