Venice High School will introduce a boys and girls varsity water polo team in spring 2018.
The team will be funded through the Southwest Florida Water Polo Foundation and the home games will be held at the Venice High pool.
“We are excited to add water polo to our lineup of sports for students at Venice High. This will grow our already strong aquatics program and give more athletes the opportunity to be part of our proud athletic tradition,” said VHS Athletic Director Pete Dombroski in a press release.
According to the Sarasota County School District, there are over 80 high school programs in the state of Florida and USA Water Polo has taken notice.
“We believe Sarasota County has the potential to have some of the state’s top water polo athletes,” said Mark Carney, director of sport growth at USA Water Polo. “We are working closely with the Southwest Florida Water Polo Foundation to support the Venice High School program in its first year.”
Students attending Pine View School, Sarasota Military Academy, and Suncoast Polytechnical High School may be eligible through the Sarasota County Athletic Choice Program.
