I would first check the strength and flexibility in their hamstrings to see if that is contributing to the problems. If not, reverse flys, seated rows, and skiiers (the arm movement a skiier would use to propel themselves forward using tubing as resistance) should help.

I would agree with Jeremy with his choice of exercises and also consider core stabilization exercises to strengthen the low back and abdominal muscles along with consideration of lats and lower traps. hope this helps

Let me introduced myself, I am Dr. Oswaldo Ponce and currently I am doing a fellowship in Alabama Sports Medicine and Orthopedics Center (ASMOC) and the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) with Dr. James Andrews. First at all ASMI and Champion Sports Medicine have a Scapular protocol for water polo players, but I think your teammates first have to be seen by a Sports Medicine Physician in order to be sure you do not have a primary injury in your back. Whether or not it turns out that they have back problems, they are probably better off doing the exercise program under the guidance of a physician or athletic trainer.
