|Blazer Water Polo Team for ages 11 and Up Offered Starting Sept. 5|
A Water Polo Team for ages 11 and up is being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District beginning in early September.
The program is called the Blazer Polo Team and is for both people who played the sport as a kid and for strong swimmers looking for fun. In addition to being a great competitive team sport, water polo is also a great way to stay fit. Practices last 90 minutes and are offered three times per week.

September practice sessions begin Sept. 5. The cost for twelve 90-minute sessions is $40 for residents or $44 for nonresidents.
