Background Information:

Jersey Wahoos has been the region’s premier year-round aquatic club for over 40-years and the AWP is highly regarded for promoting organized competitive age-group water polo throughout the United States! Together we are truly excited to offer this wonderful opportunity to enhance and expand the scope of aquatic sports in the South Jersey region.


In 2017 the Jersey Wahoos Swim Club launched its water polo program with the assistance of the AWP and our friends at KAP7. The program was a big hit and in early 2018 Wahoos was very proud to be South Jersey’s first aquatic club to enter an age-group water polo team in the AWP’s Mainline Water Polo League!
