Is your child bored of swimming laps but really loves to swim?
Consider water polo, the most exciting sport in the water. We welcome all interested boys and girls who wish to join our growing club.
The mission of the Brooklyn Water Polo Club is to support young players, ages 8 to 16, in learning, playing and competing in the sport of Water Polo through structured coaching, swimming development and competition opportunities, locally, regionally, and nationally at 10U-18U levels.
Brooklyn Water Polo Club competes in the Tri-State League (Connecticut, New York, New Jersey), the most competitive youth league on the East Coast. We also compete in the American Water Polo League in Pennsylvania.
We hold six practices a week with league matches twice per month. Girls and boys ages 8 to 16 who are proficient swimmers are encouraged to tryout for our Development and Competition teams.
