Welcome to Skyline Water Polo!
Skyline Water Polo (“SWP”) is a water polo club located at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Salt Lake City Utah. We play in two Utah leagues, and travel around the country seeking opportunities to play water polo at the highest level possible.SWP supports the notion of scholar-athletes who excel in the classroom, in their communities, in their families, and in the swimming pool. SWP seeks to enhance and develop sportsmanship in athletes.
SWP’s Board, Head Coaches, Coaching Staff and all members support the following priorities:
- Scholastics – Our athletes are students. We support the notion of successful student athletes. Success in the classroom and the athletic field provides many future opportunities. Good students make better water polo players and aquatic sports provide discipline for many facets of life.
- Citizenship – Character matters. Good character provides the model for good citizenship. Amateur sports teach many life lessons – how to win with class or lose with dignity, how to try your hardest, how to fail and try again, how effort makes a difference, how continuous learning fuels a rich life, how to set and achieve goals and how managing mistakes is part of life. We teach respect for ourselves, our teammates, our opponents, the referees and the rules of the game. We seek to build community.
- Swimming – Swimming is a skill that can provide a lifetime of enjoyment. Swimming fast is a fundamental skill of water polo. Good swimmers make good water polo players and vice versa. We encourage water polo players to develop a passion for swimming fast and building their cardio base to play at the highest levels.
