Pool Classes

Inner tube Water Polo

Want to try something new and different at the War Memorial Pool?  So do we!  Water Polo is a very strenuous sport, so why not add inner tubes and make it available to everyone?  By playing from an inner tube, it's a less rigorous game with limited player contact.  Plus it's a good way to get in some exercise in a laid back and casual environment.  How can you go wrong being outdoors in the summertime in a pool with a ball, friends and inner tubes?!?  Call or send us an email if you and your friends would like to see this league become a reality!  

Below you will find the classes that were offered in 2015.  Check back in the spring of 2016 for available classes.
