Our New Home


The Des Moines Water Polo Club practices Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 8:00 – 9:30 at the MidAmerican Energy Company Aquatic Center & Prairie Meadows Pool at the Wellmark YMCA, 501 Grand Avenue. New members are welcome to join the club.
The fun, Olympic sport of water polo emphasizes swimming ability, conditioning, ball skills, and teamwork and is considered by many as the ultimate team endurance sport.


Strong swimmers of all abilities are welcomed, including those new to the sport. Practices begin with drills for swimmers with no water polo experience.

Teams of one goalkeeper and six field players play in a water polo match. Players are not allowed to touch the bottom or side of the pool during a match and only the goalkeeper is permitted to touch the ball with two hands. Shooting the ball into the opponent’s goal scores a point. Each team has just 30 seconds to score before the possession goes to the opposition.


The Des Moines Water Polo Club will host its 33rd Annual Midwest Tournament at Ashworth Pool July 6-8, 2018.
