Hello Forsyth Water Polo Players and Parents!

Welcome to all the new Forsyth Tritons that have joined us this year. We hope you are enjoying this Spring Season of water polo. Our returning Tritons are showing lots of energy in the water, and our new teammates are already learning the key skills they’ll need to be great water polo players!

Next Parent Meeting

Please mark your calendars for our next Parent Meeting on Monday, Mar 5 at 7:30 pm. We will meet upstairs at the Cumming Aquatic Center in the stands nearest the doors. During the meeting:

  • Our coaches will talk about the Spring season teams, practices, scrimmages and more
  • We’ll go over player and parent expectations
  • You will have an opportunity to ask important questions

Water Polo Game Suits

Specially designed water polo suits are recommended for all scrimmages and games. These suits are designed to provide the appropriate coverage and freedom of movement required by this rigorous sport, while minimizing the opponent’s ability to grab and manipulate players in the water.

Water polo suits are available from a variety of online sources, including:

Girls:  For girls, we recommend the black TURBO Women’s Comfort Water Polo Suit, the TURBO Basic Dual Layer Women’s Water Polo Suit, or the Nike 93210 High Neck Tank water polo suit. However, any solid black water polo suit is acceptable. NOTE: For safety reasons, all girls need to wear a swim cap underneath their water polo caps.

Boys: For boys, the Turbo Basic Water Polo Suit (worn by our boys last year) or TURBO Dual Layer Water Polo Suit in black are good water polo suit options.
