Welcome to Water Polo

Water Polo at AHSTC is a growing team. Kids 9 years old and up are invited to join. Each year, Arbor sends teams to the All-City Championships! Come and be part of the fun!

Age Brackets: Players may play UP one age bracket, players may not play DOWN without a league approved reason. Each game day will offer a mixed girls game and if we have enough players, we can enter a girls team in each age group for the city-wide league finals.

Practices begin mid-July and matches are during the month of August. The All City Champs Prelim Week is the final week in August and culminates in the teams’ ultimate goal… the ALL CITY CHAMPIONSHIP CUP!

2022 Water Polo Registration

Please note: The board has decided that since water polo is a close contact sport, proof of vaccination will be required. An upload of vaccination card will be required at registration.
