Ohio Squirrels hosted the Sycamore High School Aviators and the University of Cincinnati this past weekend in a Mini Harvest Classic at the University of Cincinnati Keating Aquatic Center. The Squirrels went split squad and put up quite a competitive battle against the Aviators and the Bearcats. See results below. Thank you to both teams and all who attended! Good luck to both of the clubs as Sycamore heads into the Ohio High School State Championships and University of Cincinnati heads into the CWPA Great Lakes Championships.

Powel Crosley YMCA – Sunday’s. Evendale Recreation Center – Wednesday’s
For the first summer, Cincinnati Splash Water Polo was a great success. During 2 sessions, we had 15 kids attend and learn the fundamentals of water polo, being a team player and water safety. With parents in the water to assist, they were able to get a great understanding of how much fun the game is. Would like to thank American Water Polo (www.americanwaterpolo.org) for their assistance in helping us get this off the ground. Also, can’t thank the Village of Evendale (https://www.evendaleohio.org/) for their work in providing the facility, lifeguards and opportunity. For more information on our next one, email us at ohio.squirrels and keep an eye on our Facebook pages and Twitter (@ohiosquirrels) for more upcoming events. -OSWPC 2019 Cincinnati Splash Water Polo.pdf
