Jersey Wahoos 2020 Winter/Spring

Competitive Water Polo Session

 

Jersey Wahoos is pleased to announce the launch of the 2020 Winter-Spring Competitive Water Polo Session for young athletes {Boys & Girls ages 8-14}.  While the focus of the current Fall Session has been to teach the fundamental concepts, rules, and skills for playing one of the country’s fastest growing sports, the 2020 Winter-Spring Session is for the more experienced players who want to compete in travel league games.

In 2017, Jersey Wahoos proudly introduced this exciting aquatic team sport to the Tri-County region.  Wahoos also was South Jersey’s FIRST aquatic club to enter age-group water polo teams in the American Water Polo Association’s Mainline League.  This year Wahoos continues to support the expansion of this popular sport by entering U12 and U14 co-ed teams in the Mainline League.  These teams will each participate in three AWP tournaments where they will play a minimal of 6 games.  The tournaments are hosted at locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania {generally no farther than 60 miles from our club}.

NOTE:  Tournaments generally fall on practice dates between March and May.  Actual game dates will be announced in the near future.

IMPORTANT:  The 2020 Winter-Spring Competitive Water Polo Session is for the more experienced aquatic/water polo athletes.  The AWP games each consist of two 18-minute halves and each team is only allowed a maximum of 7 players in the water at a time.  Players must swim and tread throughout the games without standing on the pool bottom or holding onto the walls, goals, or field of play lines.  Do not be alarmed, numerous substitutions and lineup changes are common in water polo!

While playing time is generally very equal among our club players during the regular practices, please note that less experienced players will likely receive reduced playing time in the AWP travel league games.  

Participants in the 2020 Winter-Spring Competitive Water Polo Session should try to attend all practices and games.  Additionally, all players are expected to be focused, committed to learning, respectful and supportive of teammates, coaches and officials, and demonstrate positive behavior throughout the season.  By doing so, our youth teams are sure to have a safe and fun time playing this awesome competitive aquatic sport.
