PRACTICES

HOPS is a Masters water polo club team in the Houston area. We are a competitive polo club, with most of our members playing at the high school level and above. The club is about 80% male, with typical ages ranging from early 20s to late 30s. Playing experience is required as we do not have a dedicated coach on deck for practices. HOPS practices are Saturday 4-6pm and Sunday 1-3pm.  


With all new members, there is a brief trial period to assess that HOPS is a good fit for you. If you are invited to join the team after this period, we will set you up with an app that allows you to receive team announcements and practice updates automatically. 


The pool is at Swim Houston Aquatics Center (SHAC) located at 8454 W Airport Blvd, Houston, TX 77071. All new players must sign the SHAC liability waiver before entering the pool deck. Ask to speak to a HOPS Board member and they will show you what to do.
