Waterpolo / Diving events are TBD
Water Polo is a high energy, fast paced team sport. You will be coached to develop great ball handling skills and stamina. Although swimming is essential to this sport, you do not need amazing swimming technique as you will be taught to “swim waterpolo”.
The goal of the game is to score on the opposing team and to keep them from scoring. The summer season is 2 practices a week with games and tournaments on some weekends.
If you love team sports, water, lots of fun and making new friends, you will love Water Polo.
Practice dates and times are TBD, depending on the number of athletes that register for each activity. More details will be shared on the website once the Coaches Committee has assessed the information required to make those decisions.
