About the Sport of Water Polo
Men's Water Polo was the first team sport at the Olympic Games, in Paris, 1904. The women joined the Olympic family in Sydney, 2000. The sport combines swimming speed, ball handling skills and team play into a game that is played in an all deep pool. Games last about an hour and during a weekend tournament, teams can play 4 to 5 games.
With the Men's National Training Centre located in Calgary, strong competitive programs in Calgary and Edmonton, numerous recreational programs across the province, athletes, coaches, officials and team leaders on the National teams...Water Polo has become the newest, hottest sport in Alberta.
