WATER POLO 101 WITH JAMEY WRIGHT

 

Why is the whistle constantly blowing in a water polo game? What does it mean to drive? What are the roles of the drivers and hole-set? What is the eggbeater?

If you are unable to join us, below are also links to some online resources. Each year there are a few changes to the rules, but the older resources still provide a good overview of the basics.
