Description of 8U and 10U Age Groups


8U Water Polo Fall Session: Mondays 6:10 - 7:10, 9/11 - 10/16

This group is for players who are 8 or younger, or who will be in Kinder - 3rd grade this year. Players will learn a modified version of the game and develop many essential water polo skills that will get players ready to join the 10U group at some point. Practices will be held at the instructional community pool.
8U players will be invited to participate in scrimmage nights and any clinic nights we organize in the Fall.  We will send dates out for those as they become finalized.
10U Water Polo Fall Session: Tuesday/ Thursday 6:00 - 7:00, 9/12 - 11/16
This group is primarily for players who are 9 and 10 years old and/ or starting 4th or 5th grade. This group will be learning to play water polo according to the 10U water polo rules.  Players in 3rd grade who are strong enough swimmers to participate in the 10U practice at Schaal Pool, are welcome to join the 10U group, but be aware 10U players will also practice with 12U players frequently.
Players will have the opportunity to compete in one or two day tournaments during the months of September, October, and November.  There will also be scrimmage nights and clinic nights that we will provide more details about as they become finalized.
If you have any questions about what group to sign your child up for please contact and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have.  We can also make appropriate adjustments during the season if needed. Please keep us aware of any questions or concerns you may have.
