Shark Water Polo Programs


Year Round 

  CFWPC Sharks compete each season of the year with various age groups and divisions (a little different each season).  Which will also include different practice locations throughout CFISD pools.

 CFWPC age groups follow the USA Water Polo age divisions.   

  • High School - 9th-12th Grade Athletes, 18U and 16U Age Groups
  • Age Group - 8th Grade & Under - 8th/6th Grade & Younger, 14U, 12U, and 10U 

Fall,  Winter, and Spring Season (the school year), age groups are based on an athlete’s year in school (Example: 8th Grade & Under).  

Practice Locations:  We have various pools; CFISD Nat, Cy Ranch, Bridgeland and a Conditioning Pool.  As of August 8th  2022,we moved athletes to Bleyl Middle School 10800 Mills RdHouston, TX  77070 on Monday & Tuesday from 5:30-7:30pm and                                                            CFISD Natatorium 12550 Windfern Rd, Houston TX 77064 on Wednesday & Thursday from 5:30-7:30 pm                                                      Currently due to the active High School water polo season we do not have practice on Saturday.

Practice Frequency: Generally, we have always tried to accommodate athletes and their families' commitments. We have server athletes that participate in other sports and clubs. Training sessions can be broken down by skill or commitment . We offer two programs during the Summer; Summer League and JO Training while our Fall/ Winter and Spring Session we offer 4 options. For High School; 4 days or 2 days. For 8th grade and under 4 days or 2 days. For the ones choosing 2 day option; athletes are allowed to train on the days of their choice.

Additionally, there will be opportunities for common training for all the athletes.  Common training is an opportunity for players to train together within their own gender and age groups. These trainings are some of the most important to attend, as you will be with all of the players from your age group in addition to your head coach for each age group. These trainings are held periodically each season.

Tournaments:  Are a vital part of our training, we train and condition to compete. We encourage all Sharks to participate in local and state tournaments. Register under the Event tap to declare your willingness to participate in a particular tournament. Once we have enough athletes to compete a few teams we will open registration and announce payment deadlines. 2022- 2023 Tournaments for all athletes registration is under the event tab.
