What is the Tony Azevedo Academy?
A school of the sport that is more than just a clinic. The Tony Azevedo Academy aims to be an entire life experience that will change the way you play water polo. Learn unique international training drills used in the top water polo powerhouse countries such as Serbia and Hungary. For the first-ever Summer Academy, Tony is partnering with UCLA Men’s Head Coach Adam Wright to ensure athletes will be exposed to the latest trends in college recruitment and networking.
At the Summer Academy 2017 Tony & Adam introduced their first Combine. A Combine is combination of certain sport specific conditioning drills to determine speed, strength and skill level. The Winter Academy team will again run 6-8 water polo specific drills where participants will be videoed and have their times recorded. The results will be added to an online database/app for all athletes to download and compare stats.
