Welcome to ORCA Water Polo!
The mission of ORCA WATER POLO is to develop young players’ water polo skills so they may participate in high school and collegiate water polo at levels commensurate with their fully developed talents.
ORCA WATER POLO supports the notion of the scholar-athlete; individuals who excel in the classroom, in the swimming pool, in their communities, and in their families.
ORCA WATERPOLO seeks to enhance and develop sportsmanship in athletes. Not only does our program seek to be a winning program, but ORCA WATER POLO also wants to be respected for having class.
