Water Polo - Boys & Girls
Water Polo is a commitment. You have to commit to the entire year. You do not have to be on the water polo team to be on the swim team, but you must be on the swim team in order to play water polo.
To create a team spirit in what is essentially an individual sport. The water polo team helps the swim team feel more connected. The swimming on the swim team is conditioning for the water polo competitions.
Water polo season is from August - October. There are varsity and junior varsity sections of water polo. Students sometimes receive college scholarships for their water polo skills. Develop a physical fitness and team spirit through play in water polo, which helps further develop strength in swimming in general.
Students must be passing in order to play. It is an athletic aspect of Lamar and students are given PE credit for participating.
Season and Practice Times:
Our Water Polo season runs from August through October. We do practice before school starts, starting typically on August 1st. Practices are scheduled after school hours once school starts. We recommend all our athletes to maintain a balance between their academics and athletics.
**Schedule is morning and afternoon practices during the season.
- We are incredibly proud of our Boys' and Girls' Water Polo teams. In 2022, our Boys' team outdid themselves, securing victory in the Purple Monkey Tournament and winning District. They also made it to the Regional Quarterfinals in the playoffs.
- Our Girls' team also showed exceptional talent and determination. They secured the 2nd position in District and made it to the Bi-District Playoffs. Their performance was commendable, and we look forward to an even more successful season next year.
- In 2011 and 2012, Lamar water polo achieved amazing results. Girls came in fourth in the state and boys came in fifth in the state. Both boys and girls placed 2nd in regionals. Four players were named to the all-region, all-state, and all-American teams. Both the Lamar girls and boys' teams have made it to state for the past 5 years, and we hope to accomplish the same thing every year!
Do you have the passion and determination to be a part of our teams? If yes, then we look forward to welcoming you.
