Join the HCY Water Polo Club!
Water polo at our Y offers the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of water polo in a fun, supportive environment that emphasizes skill development, teamwork and physical fitness.
Water polo is a sport enjoyed by girls and boys who are looking to increase their stamina, endurance and overall swimming skills. We teach kids and teens the basics of the game, with an emphasis on the fundamentals of treading water, passing, catching, shooting, and offensive/defensive game strategies. Our approach is to nurture team players, always instilling our core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Kids learn drills, the skills and water polo rules, as well as healthy competition.
