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.
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.
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
Help us launch new community programs at the wonderful, recently opened, indoor swim facilities at Moon High School.

Who else wants to join us at the community SKWIM games at Moon High School pool on Sunday(s) from 2-4 pm? Great fun and fitness.
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.
Tip: The indoor swim pool is directly behind the main school building. Park in the big parking lot to the side of the school.
Sessions are held on Friday evenings when there is not a home football game.
Friends in #Pittsburgh, especially #Lebo and south hills, great new family activity starting on Fridays, kids and guardians. Check out SKWIM & Water Polo.
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:
Welcome back to game play within Pennsylvania Water Polo for Pittsburgh Combined! https://waterpolo.CLOH.org. #PAwaterpolo #Pittsburgh #renewal
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.
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!
This is for Pittsburgh Combined Water Polo.
Cost is $0.
Our first game is at 11 am. Be there, ready to play about 10:45 am.
North Allegheny Senior High School swim pool. Park between the football field and the school. Enter on the side door of the school. Go downstairs to the pool locker-rooms and pool deck.
