The FLORIDA GATORS ARE
2019 CWPA CLUB NATIONAL CHAMPIONS
Since the team's start in 1993 with only six Players, UF Women's Water Polo has grown to become a very successful program with more than 30 active participants.
The University of Florida Women's Water Polo team competes in the Collegiate Water Polo Association's Southeast Conference (CWPA). We have won all but five of the conference championships.
Our A team attends travel tournaments from coast to coast and competes for the CWPA national championship every year. We are consistently successful on a national level and have made more than a dozen appearances at the National Collegiate Club Championships in the last 20 years. We also encourage new players to join and play on the B team, which is less demanding and offers more of a learning experience.
Continue your water polo career by joining the University of Florida Women’s Water Polo team. Long lasting memories will be made, lifelong friendships will be started, and championship runs will be fought for as you enjoy the competition and lessons learned by being part of this sports team.
We encourage anyone who has an interest in playing to reach out to us or come try out a practice at Florida Pool. Check out the contact or recruitment tabs to learn more and get in touch!
