2019 JERSEY WAHOOS FALL SESSION WATER POLO 

In 2017 the Jersey Wahoos Swim Club launched a youth water polo program specifically designed for boys and girls, ages 8-14. The program was a big hit and in 2018 Wahoos proudly became South Jersey’s first aquatic club to enter an age-group water polo team in the American Water Polo Association’s Mainline League. With the continued growth of the program in 2019, two Jersey Wahoos age-group teams competed in spring league play with very favorable results.

This coming September Jersey Wahoos will continue to embrace one of the country’s fastest growing sports by hosting another Fall Water Polo Session. Coaches & clinicians with years of experience will guide each participant as they learn the fundamental concepts, rules, and skills for playing water polo.

Besides being a really fun sport, water polo can compliment competitive swimmers by offering many opportunities and benefits, including:

  • Learning new swimming strokes and aquatic skills for a sport that is played in many high schools and colleges across the United States

  • Increasing fitness, strength & stamina

  • Building friendships while sharing the values of teamwork & sportsmanship

  • Training in a safe, respectful and positive environment

 

The Fall Water Polo Session practices focus on the following:

  • Beginner Group - Athletes will be introduced to the action-packed team sport of Water Polo.   No prior competitive water polo experience is required.
