Boys Water Polo



MAKE UP AQUATICS TRYOUTS:  December 11th, 2:20pm

To try out for girls’ swimming you must complete 10x50s free on :55 seconds and a legal 100 IM.  Girls’ polo does not test for the 100 IM but does the same swim test and has an eggbeater component as part of the try out.


To try out for boys’ swimming, you must complete the 10x50s free on :50 and a legal 100 IM.  Boys’ polo does not need the 100 IM but does the same swim test.

We highly recommend training for the tryout.  We frequently see kids who think they are prepared who are not.  If you do not have a background in competitive swimming, there is no way to make the tryout without practice.

At the tryout, you will be asked to write a few paragraphs about your commitment, dedication and attitude.  We are looking for athletes that are driven to these sports and are willing to make the team their top extracurricular activity.

Once you make the baseline tryout, the athletes are ranked and we take as many as we can from the ranking.  There is room for about 12 freshman boys and 12 freshman girls in swim, and room for about 8 boys and 4-6 girls on Varsity polo. Not everyone who passes the swim test makes it on to the teams.

Athletic paperwork and this year’s aquatics handbook:


There will be an August tryout for anyone who can not attend in June, or who could not make the June tryout and trained over the summer for another chance.

Thank you again for your interest!
