Ernest Hemmingway, the famous novelist, played on his high school Water Polo team
In 2010, the Navy, with the help of Gallup, identified seven sports that breed athletes who have the highest rate of becoming a SEAL—water polo, swimming, triathlons, lacrosse, boxing, rugby, and wrestling. Of that group, water polo players had the highest odds of making through SEAL training, odds that doubled if they played the sport in college.
You can practice with the Polo Bears for 4 full sessions for $25 to see if water polo is right for you. If, after the 4 sessions, you want to join full-time the $25 fee will be applied to your pro-rated registration fee.
You can also join for the rest of the season at any time with a pro-rated cost. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and/or for more information.
We practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays with games on Sundays at the Tri Leisure Centre in Spruce Grove. There will be times where games will be also be played in Edmonton on Saturdays. Game schedule is in the works.
