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.
