We practice year-round with some breaks. Our general yearly schedule is as follows:
Fall Season: September through early November.
Winter Training: November through January.
Spring Season: February through early April.
Summer Season: Mid-April through July.
Our Fall and Spring seasons includes weekly Saturday games against other teams in the area.
Please see the schedule page for our current practice schedule.
As the only water polo team in the Denver metro area, we have a variety of practice locations so that our member families hopefully have one closer practice location. We generally hold four weekday practices and a practice on Saturday.
Though we do not have practice requirements, we encourage our 12U athletes to attend a minimum of one weekday and the Saturday practice. Older athletes are encouraged to attend a minimum of two weekday practices and Saturday.
We travel to tournaments in New Mexico (mid-September and early April) and California (mid-February) and late July. We travel to two tournaments that rotate sites, the 12U National Championships in late October and the Mountain Zone Championships in late June. We also host a tournament in Colorado in the first two weeks of November. The cost of these trips is not included in the fees stated above. It is not required to travel to these tournaments.
We receive a number of inquiries from athletes who do not have much swimming experience. We work with athletes on their swimming, but we are not a learn-to-swim program. Athletes will have much more fun and practice will be much more productive if they can swim at least one length of the pool unaided.
We provide all of the equipment necessary to play. We recommend athletes bring goggles and a speedo or jammer swimsuit.
