About this trip

Individual athletes are placed on a water polo club team and become part of this team for the duration of their stay. We find that athletes develop close friendships and are taken under the wings of their Italian teammates. Each training trip is a high-level professional experience and cultural immersion; athletes train/ scrimmage with local clubs and participate in daily activites with their teammates. Clubs in this region are considered to be some of the best in the world.


Cancellation Policy

Why is the trip deposit non-refundable?


 There is well over a year’s worth of time and planning that goes into making these events successful.  There is a nonrefundable deposit at the time of sign up to make sure those signing up are serious about securing their place, this deposit is used immediately to secure our lodging, shuttles, etc.   The event venue, hotels, excursions, and classes are planned well in advance and do have specific deadlines and/or policies and therefore are not refundable after a certain point. (Similar to Airbnb)  We understand that things come up and something may happen to prevent you from attending. For this reason, we also STRONGLY suggest trip insurance.

My name is Cassie Azevedo Maggiolo. I’m the European coordinator for Azevedo Water Polo’s travel trips. I have led team and individual training trips for the past eight years. After finishing college I moved to play professional in Dunaújváros, Hungary. After Hungary I played in Italy for 5 years. Once in Italy I saw the opportunity to show what other countries could offer. To expand your style od play. On these international trips we give young athletes a combination of high-level professional experience and cultural immersion. A fun fact is that Italy was the only country in the world to medal in both men’s and women’s water polo in the 2016 Olympic games.
