BOYS Water Polo | Varsity

Water Polo began as a sport sometime in the 19th century in England, although the early versions of the activity bear little resemblance to the modern day version played today. The origins of water polo are obscure to say the least but we do know that the word "polo" is the English pronunciation of the Indian word "pulu," that means ball. Just as the ball game that is played on horseback became known as "polo," the ball game played in the water became known as "water polo," the name is the only connection between the sports.

The game of the day featured set plays like the "flying salmon," where the player with the ball leapt through the air from the backs of his teammates to score a goal. Violence was the game's main attraction. By 1900, water polo was so popular it became the first team sport added to the Olympic Games program and has remained an Olympic sport ever since. Great Britain won gold at each of the first four Olympic Games. Over the years the game has evolved to more of a soccer style in which an opponent could only make contact if a player held the ball. In addition, the evolution of swimming changed the game from brute strength underwater to one of passing and speed above the surface.

Water polo within the United States was adopted as a championship sport for men in the collegiate system in the early 70's, while women were added about 30 years later. Today, collegiate and high school teams can be found throughout the country. Niles West started thier boys team in 2010.
