Try Us Out

Love being in the water? Love to swim and play in a team environment? Want to achieve your personal best? Want to be part of a passionate community of coaches, athletes and parents? Try water polo with Scarborough Shadow Water Polo Club. As part of our “Try Us Out” program, you can attend up to two water polo practices for FREE. Alternatively, join us for the Summer and have a great time playing in an outdoor pool.

The program you choose to attend depends on the age and swimming experience of the player. Contact us to find out more.

Prior to trying us out, a registration form must be completed.

Mini Water Polo

The Mini Water Polo program is our entry level recreational program. It is a great way to be introduced to the basics of the water polo sport. Children who join us have a love of water and a joy of play. Their ability to understand the rules of the game and core skills gives way to them being able to move into one of the competitive programs.

Recreational & Competitive Programs

Our recreational and competitive programs are designed to meet the interests and abilities of the children. Every child who loves to play in water has an opportunity to participate in water polo. Participation can range from one to six practices a week. Invitation to the competitive program depends on many factors that will be discussed with parents and determined by our capable coaching staff.
