American Water Polo and the Collegiate Water Polo Association are sponsoring a clinic on November 17, 2018 during the Men’s Mid Atlantic Championship. The clinic will take place at Fordham University from 9 AM to 11 AM and will feature Olympian Brad Schumacher.

Immediately after the clinic there will be a high school all-star game, followed by the second round of the Mid Atlantic Championship, involving the some of the top teams in the country.

We are offering an opportunity for your athletes to participate in the clinic at a group rate. Normal price is $65 and the discounted rate if a team registers three or more athletes is $50/athlete. Price includes four tickets to the collegiate competition, a picture with Brad Schumacher, and a souvenir mug ($180 value). This is a great chance for your athletes to meet an Olympian, watch high quality collegiate water polo, and enjoy a great clinic.

Tuesdays, water polo and SKWIM at Chartiers Valley

Update: No water polo practice at 7:30 pm on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6. School is closed. See you the following week.

However, a possible day-time water polo game is being scheduled, we hope, for another venue on the same day, Tuesday, November 6. 

Join in: 7:30 to 9 pm on Tuesdays

First practice was Tuesday, October 2, 2018. Gather every Tuesday, (except election day). Come out and support the program to Thanksgiving. Then we'll see how the schedule stacks up with the high school swim schedules and adjust as needed.

Arrive and be ready to meet and then swim at 7:30 pm as we need to be out of the locker-rooms by 9 pm.

Drop ins okay and the first visit(s) are without any charge as a try-out. A modest fee structure is to be posted soon.

RSVP: Let us know your attending.

Swim pools are across the hall from the main gym

Beware of construction at the site. Plenty of free parking near the football field on the side of the building. Enter the school hallway near the football field and walk to the school gym, and the swim pool is on the other side of the hall.

Go to Chartiers Valley, 7:30 pm Tuesdays, to swim, play SKWIM and get ready for water polo games with other teams and the masters squad. Join us! #Pittsburgh #waterpolo

Join us at 7:45 pm on Friday, October 12, 2018, as we grow a new tradition of Friday night aquatic game play that includes kids as well as their coaches, guardians, parents, mentors and other adults. This community practice features some swim instruction and lots of fitness, teamwork, sportsmanship and fun competitive aquatic games. 

Water polo is being introduced as well as SKWIM, a game that is played with fins and without contact. Come by and check it out. 

First day, no charge. Later, expect to have a drop in fee, perhaps $5 per person. And, we'll also have an RSVP system in the weeks to come to capture names for our in-house games.

First games of the season

Water polo squad in team photo with Pittsburgh Combined

Team photo after our first two games of the new year.

Lots of players enjoyed their first encounters with water polo in their first games on Sunday as the Pittsburgh Combined squad was able to fill a slot in the weekend action hosted at North Allegheny Senior High School in Sunday’s play with two games with Cumberland Valley.

Only three of the players had prior water polo game experience.

The team played in two games, both with 12-minute halves, running clock. One was with the CV boys and the second was with the CV girls.

Players formed the team from various school districts:

  • South Park,
  • Mt. Lebanon,
  • Pittsburgh, (home schooled)
  • Elizabeth Forward,
  • Ringgold, and
  • Keystone Oaks.

Renegades invited to return to South Park – with developmental game night

Pittsburgh’s masters water polo team has been invited to join the Pittsburgh Combined teams for a game day at 7:30 pm on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

However, everyone who plays needs to be a current member of American Water Polo. Sign up with the team, Pittsburgh Renegades.

Without being a member, you won’t be able to play. The membership is visible on mobile devices. The Redegades squad did hold a few practices, along with CMU players, in the fall of 2017. However, at that time, there were not any youth water polo players at South Park.

Even if only five or so players attend, the evening practice will still be a success. The Pittsburgh Combined team has averaged about 8 players per practice, and the numbers are growing. So, getting a few more players should insure a full-pool scrimmage.

Heja, an app that can handle RSVPs

We are using a new app, Heja, for our team communication and activity planning. Click the link, download the app & join Water Polo, Pittsburgh Combined now!

Code is GUZJ

This is for Pittsburgh Combined Water Polo.

Cost is $0.
