Westminster was excited to add boys’ water polo to its offerings in the fall of 2018. The addition of this sport was part of the original vision for Hibbard Aquatic Center when it was constructed in 2003, with an eye to building upon the tradition of aquatic excellence on the “Hill.” With its elevated viewing area for fans and its wide-open windows letting in natural light, Hibbard is the perfect venue for the Martlets to compete and develop a tradition of success within the water polo program.
The water polo team competes against many of the traditional water polo strongholds in New England in the Founders League and NEPSAC, including teams from Exeter, Andover, Suffield, Loomis, Deerfield, Hotchkiss, Choate, Brunswick, Williston and Hopkins. Matches are either single game or scheduled as mini-tournaments involving three teams competing at a host school’s pool. The championship tournament, known as The Liquid Four, takes place at the end of the fall athletic season in November.
Westminster’s team is made up of both experienced players and strong swimmers who are new to the game. The team is open to all interested athletes. Many players are new to the sport when they arrive at Westminster. Practices are tailored toward developing individual fundamental skills and broader team concepts. Water polo suits students who model the Grit & Grace motto through perseverance and dedication to their own improvement and learning as well as the team’s.
