Great Lakes Water Polo is the Midwest's largest and most successful youth water polo club. Founded in 1999, GLWP has trained over 300 athletes and has placed numerous athletes on Midwest Zone, Michigan High School All-State and collegiate varsity teams. GLWP has also had three athletes represent the United States on National Youth teams.
GLWP offers both high school programs and "age group" programs for younger children. As stated in our mission statement (PDF 39K), Great Lakes Water Polo seeks to develop recognized club teams that proudly represent Michigan and northwest Ohio in state, regional, zone and national competition. Two competitions in which we regularly compete are the Speedo Cup and National Junior Olympics. GLWP and club members also join American Water Polo.
