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

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.

Game day on Sunday, September 22, 2018

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.
