The USA Water Polo Holiday Camp was started in 1985 and remains one of the USAWP’s greatest annual events. Each year athletes and coaches from across the country have convened at the USA Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado to learn from the top coaches in the country. In 2009, the Holiday Camp was moved under the auspices of the Olympic Development Program (ODP) with the intent of continuing the tradition of conducting the Holiday Camp with an emphasis on the long-term development of athletes and coaches. In 2009, referees were added to the Holiday Camp.

In 2010 the Holiday Camp was divided into a Boy’s and Girl’s Camp in order to increase the number of athletes, coaches and referees participating in this special environment conducted by the best in our sport at an Olympic Training Center.
