Masters Water Polo Club 

Downloads at Bottom of Page

       The Sarasota Sharks Masters Water Polo Club is designed to provide training and playing opportunities for athletes with a wide variety of goals and backgrounds, from learning and improving skills, remaining competitive in practice and game situations, staying physically fit, and enjoying the camaraderie of participating in a team sport.  

       All Athletes from age 18 to 80+ are welcome! All levels of experience welcomed and encouraged, from beginners to seasoned veterans. Do NOT be intimidated or afraid to come out and play because you think you are out of shape, have not played for years, or have never played at all! We support all levels and ages of athletes on their water polo journey. 

       As with any “Masters” program, there will be a wide spectrum of abilities, experience and conditioning that show up on deck. No Problem! We can all learn something every day. This club is about having fun, enjoying the ride, and practicing at the best aquatic center on the southwest coast of Florida (The Shark Tank). There will also be opportunities to participate in tournaments. 

       Practices will consist of a light swimming warm up, passing to warm up arm and legs, drills, and then scrimmage. As a “Masters” athlete, you can do as much or as little as you feel comfortable with in any given practice. 

A USAWP bronze (or higher) membership is required!
Go to: to sign up.

The Sarasota Sharks are club #35419. This is an insurance issue and mandatory! You will also get a cool magazine, get connected to the greater water polo community, and are eligible to play in tournaments. All of this for approximately $45 per year (as a bronze member). Please bring a copy of your membership card to your 1st practice. 

         Practices are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 until 8:15 PM at the Selby Aquatic Center (aka, The Shark Tank). The cost is $35 per month, with current monthly Sarasota Sharks Masters swimmers paying just $18 per month. A great incentive to join the Sarasota Sharks Masters swim team, get in great swimming shape, and play water polo! A drop-in fee of $12 is available, but we strongly encourage signing up for the monthly membership fee.  


        Please contact Coach Bergquist before showing up for the first practice so that we can have all the necessary paperwork completed. That way, when 6:30pm Wednesday evening rolls around, you will be ready to go!
