Saint John: Youth water polo
If you love swimming…
If you love action…
If you love games…
Then waterpolo is the sport for you!
Water polo involves three components: fitness, skills and the game. Water polo allows kids to have fun while learning basic skills, tactics and rules of the game. We provide a positive environment that promotes fitness, friendship, teamwork and sportsmanship. Water polo is the perfect answer for those parents who want to involve their children in a sport that promotes total body fitness with very little impact on joints. Injuries are rare at this level of play. Kids like water polo so much because it’s fun and it’s unique. It’s like soccer in the water, played with 7 players on each team, including the goalie. You swim with the ball or pass it and try to score on the other goal. No water polo experience is necessary, but players should be comfortable in deep water. We recommend Red Cross Swim Kids 7 or equivalent. Our water polo is an introductory, recreational water polo program for boys and girls. Tournaments are planned every season, for those wanting to progress to a more competitive level. We have different age groups, U12 born 2003 & younger and U14&U16 born 2000-2002. U18 born 1999 and older.
Come join in the fun!
