Water Polo Tryout Information

All interested athletes need to register for a try out before signing up for the two-week trial membership. You cannot show up to a practice asking to tryout and you cannot sign up for a two week trial without attending a tryout. Trial membership are for those brand new to the sport of water polo. There are three tryout group options. 

Tryout Groups

Grades K-6th Boys and Girls Boys 7th-8th Our primary goal for this age range is to introduce water polo to kids and expose them to a positive team environment. Beginner level water polo practices include a lot of swimming because you have to be a strong swimmer to be able to perform water polo fundamentals.
For 7th-8th graders, previous summer swim league or club swimming experience is recommended for this age group, but not required. See below on how to register.
Grades 7th-12th Girls Contact Coach Courtney Johnson with a tryout request at [email protected].
Grades 9th-12th Boys Contact Coach Carl Matthews with a tryout request at [email protected].

What To Wear: Your child should arrive in their swimsuit. Bring a towel and goggles.
