Two aquatic sports will be offered at the Santa Monica High School aquatics center this summer and these popular water sports are none other then Splashball and U10 Youth Water Polo. Splashball and U10 Youth Water Polo head coach Matt Flanders said that the program has been successful since it was first offered to children two years ago. "This is the second year Santa Monica High school has offered the U10 Youth Water Polo program," said Flanders. "We run two programs right now. Splashball, which is Water Polo modified for the kids at the shallow end with smaller goals and smaller balls non contact, and U10 Water Polo which is full Water Polo rules with smaller balls and smaller goals but with all the deep end."
