Water Polo, Girls
2015 Western New England Prep Semi-Finalists
Girls water polo at Loomis dates back to the late-1970's, when Coach Bob Hartman created one of the first high school programs in New England. Splitting into girls and boys programs in the mid-1990s, both teams have enjoyed consistent success in their respective leagues. The girls have won three New England Prep School Championships and finished second six times.
The daily focus on individual skill development and the ability to play as a team is at the core of the program. With growing enthusiasm for the sport and the joy that the team members share by being with each other every day, Loomis Chaffee water polo continues to thrive as it competes in both the Founders and Class A New England leagues against skilled opponents who help to challenge and refine our play. Each year Loomis participates in the Choate Invitational, competes in several tri-meets, and contends for a New England Tournament berth. We look forward to welcoming you.
