Water Polo/Girls

For students looking to make a splash during their time at HPA, water polo is the sport of choice. Equal parts ferocious and tactical, water polo is a unique experience that is built upon teamwork and discipline in the pool.

While water polo is traditionally an activity that caters to strong swimmers, all are welcomed to take a dip into the sport at the solar-heated Dowsett Pool.
