LSU Water Polo has moved up from Student-Association status to Club status. We are now eligible to compete at the national club level. Currently, there are only two (2) university teams in the State of Louisiana. USA Water Polo has heard about what we are doing, and they are trying to help us start high school water polo state-wide. If we can accomplish this goal, LSU could reach varsity status within 5 years and have a solid recruitment platform both within and from surrounding states. This means, we could theoretically have the opportunity to not only compete in the NCAA championships but also establish LSU as the dominant force in the South. One of the biggest challenges with improving our level of play is having enough funding to pay for travel and equipment...particularly water polo cages, which cost about $1,500 each. Additionally, water polo balls and caps cost over $30 each, and we need a new set of 10-20 balls and about 30 caps on an annual basis. These costs don't include speedos, shirts, and backpacks...let alone the annual water polo clinics we will be holding annually and, hopefully, more frequently in the future. Ideally, we would like to visit swim teams across the state and hold clinics in their pools.

On a side note, LSU water polo has begun a philanthropic arm of the team with several volunteer activities occurring annually. We believe that, by doing so, LSU water polo will be able to raise the bar for athletes in other sports as well.
