Water polo is one of the fastest growing sports in Chicago and the western suburbs. Water polo is a competitive team sport that mixes the best of basketball, soccer, and hockey (not to mention swimming!). Huntington Estates Water Polo strives to introduce players to the sport and develop their skills through four practices a week and games against other subdivision teams in Naperville.
Our league, the Naperville Summer Subdivision Water Polo League administers the program and runs a season consisting of 6-8 games and a championship tournament in mid-July. The league consistently stresses an instructional, fun, and competitive approach to the game.
If you like to swim and have fun on a team, come join our Water Polo team! No experience necessary!
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE WATER POLO TEAM:
Players must be a member of HEBT. If there are unfilled spots on our team (less than 40 players), after May 25th, we will open membership to members of neighboring pools which do not have polo teams until we have 40 members.
AGE: 8-14 (you must be 8 yrs. old by May 31stand may play through 8th grade). Players must be able to swim at least 25 yards freestyle without stopping.
The league is divided into two age divisions, 8-11 & 12-14. U11 Coed, U14 Boys (Coed only when there is no U14 Girls team from the opponent side) and U14 Girls. We are hoping to have enough players for a U14 Girls team this year!!
