Season Updates


Date: May 19, 2017

Villanova Pool Renovation
As most of you know, the Villanova pool is currently empty and they are doing a number of renovations including replacing the filter system. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month, but nothing is ever certain in these situations. We have been reaching out to other pools and La Salle said they are available. We know that is not convenient for everyone, so we are trying to get into Haverford. We will notify you once we a location finalized.

Summer Schedule
As the Eastern Water Polo League has become smaller and the teams more competitive, it provides little parity for many of our members to play games. This year's lineup includes Northern Virginia, Kingfish Vets, Greenwich Masters and the HAWCS. There may be one additional team from Arlington as well. However, for our "B" team players, it would not be an enjoyable experience playing against these opponents. Therefore, we have decided to expand upon what we experimented with last summer.

We are going to divide our club into three or four equal teams. We are hoping to get enough players to field at least six on six. The teams will be set by the beginning of the season and only one roster adjustment may be made (by our office) in July, depending upon attendance. Each team will play 1-2 games on Tuesday nights and standings will be kept throughout the season. The winning team will receive a free round of drinks at the team social on the last night.

This will meet two important needs for our club. First, it will give some meaning to the open scrimmages. Second, it will provide an avenue for our less experienced athletes to compete against similar competition.

Eastern Water Polo League
This year the Eastern Water Polo League will only take place on one weekend due to team availability. The date is July 8-9 and we will still enter a team comprised of experienced athletes interested in competing.
