Teamwork in the Water

Water polo is a hard sport! In water polo, you are in a pool. You can’t touch the bottom of the pool. You have to keep swimming the whole game!

There is one net at each end of the pool. Both teams try to get the ball into the other team’s net. Most of the players can only hold the ball with one hand. Only the goalie can use two hands. The goalie tries to stop the ball from going into the net.

Everyone on a water polo team has to work together. They pass the ball to each other. They shoot it at the net. They score!
