BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — Former St. Francis College Brooklyn men’s water polo coach Carl Quigley and former Terriers’ swimming coach Gary Walunas led 50+ athletes ages 5 to 15 through water polo drills, skills and game play over two hours at the York College pool in Jamaica, Queens, on Sunday, May 19.

The event, sponsored by Black People Will Swim, Inclusive Community Wellness, and USA Water Polo brought together swimmers from local programs eager for an introduction to polo, considered to be the most exciting sport in the water.

Plans are underway for a regular polo practice schedule at York as well as joint programming with Commonpoint Queens, which offers water polo training in nearby Forest Hills, to grow the sport in New York City’s most diverse borough.
