Although not as well known in Canada as other sports, water polo is popular internationally and is recognized as one of the most demanding team sports for developing well-rounded, physically fit athletes in both strength and endurance. Teams consist of six players and a goalie. Game play involves swimming, treading water (using a kicking motion known as an eggbeater kick), passing a ball about the size of volleyball, and scoring by getting the ball into the opponent's net.
