A New Milestone For The Jersey Wahoos Swim Club

On 3/18/18 the Jersey Wahoos Water Polo Team played its first competitive water polo game against a team from Bergen County.  The young players performed exceptionally as a cohesive team and were VERY EXCITED about the positive outcome!!!    

The team is looking forward to playing more games over the next 3 months!

Congratulations to the players & Best of Luck with the remainder of the season!!!




The Fall Water Polo Session wrapped up on Sunday 12/10/17 with extensive skills training and an exciting scrimmage game. Over 20 young athletes participated in this session and they truly had a blast!

The Winter Water Polo Session began on January 7th, 2018 and our growing water polo group is working hard in preparation of the upcoming Spring Competitive Session.  

In fact, Jersey Wahoos is very proud to be South Jersey's FIRST aquatic club to have an age-group water polo team participating in league play!!!   The club's young co-ed team is scheduled to compete in the American Water Polo Association's Mainline League throughout the 2018 spring season.  

These are very exciting times for the Jersey Wahoos Swim Club and the entire aquatic community here in southern New Jersey.











On September 10th, Jersey Wahoos and the American Water Polo Association co-hosted JW's inaugural Water Polo Kickoff Clinic which introduced the fundamental concepts, rules, and skills necessary to play this aquatic team sport to 20 young athletes from the South Jersey region. Participants had a blast!

A special thanks to Dan Sharadin (Villanova Univ Men's Water Polo coach), Damon Newman (Villanova Univ Women's coach), Alex Stankevitch (NCAA Collegiate referee), and several members of the Villanova water polo team for helping to make this event a big success!
