Our team: Norwood teams up with Triangle and Overlake swim clubs to form one team for Water Polo to compete against other Midlakes Water Polo teams! Our combined team creatively call themselves Tr-over-wood.  Below is information regarding scheduling of practices and games.  This is a co-ed program, there is not a separate team for boys and girls. Each age-group has their own team.  Some playing-up to an older age group is a great way for more playing time and helps to support the team.
 
Coaches:  2018 TBD!!
 

Practices: Starting Monday, July 23rd 2018 regular season practices will start. Because games also begin this week Thursday-Saturday, Practice will be on MondayTuesdayWednesday. They will take place at Overlake Golf and Country Club and will be at the following times:
