Suggestions for Start-up Program (East Coast)
I'm running a small start-up program, playing out of community pools in an attempt to build interest in the sport. Slowly we're growing, but each year I'm investing too much of my own cash to finance equipment and pool fees.
Any other east coast folks building/built a club from the ground up and how are you/did you finance your endeavors?
Have you tried partnering with a local swim club? When I was swimming, my year around team hosted a water polo clinic at the pool, which got tons of swimmers interested.
Just an idea— see if any swim clubs are interested in organizing a water polo camp. They might be able to help raise some money.
