Q: Why play water polo? It is a fun, team sport and a great way to maintain aquatic shape during a slow time in the swim season.
Q: I can’t make all the practices or games, can I still play? A: Yes, this is an informal team and league.
Q: I have never played water polo before, would it be ok to play? A: Yes, we will help you learn the game.
Q: Is there a crash course in water polo I can take before joining to the team? A: Yes, we are running a 2 hour water polo clinic at TAC on Sat 7/14 from 1:00 to 3:00. We will cover basic strategies and skills. The cost is $10.
Q: Do girls play water polo? A: Water Polo is one of the fastest growing NCAA scholarship sports for women. As a relatively new sport for women, it takes less experience to obtain a scholarship in this sport than others. A decent swimmer with some knowledge of the game and natural athletic talent could earn a full ride to college. Trivia: The US men’s and women’s teams won silver medals in the 2008 Olympics. Make sure to watch the Olympic water polo games on TV this summer!
