A Letter to Class of 2026 Freshmen from Loyola Varsity Water Polo Coach Erik Healy
Dear Member of the Class of 2026:
Congratulations and welcome to Loyola High School! The Water Polo program will be conducting workouts for incoming freshmen during the summer and you are invited to join us.
The days that freshmen will work out on campus are June 22rd, June 29th, July 6th and July 13th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Please join us at Conn Pool (located on the east end of campus, next to the gym) and be sure to bring a swimsuit, goggles and a towel.
Though these workouts are not mandatory, they are highly recommended for any Cub that is interested in playing water polo during the upcoming fall season. These workouts will give you a chance to meet other freshmen and our coaches, learn and enjoy the game, as well as prepare you physically and strategically to contribute to the Loyola Water Polo program in the fall. Student-athletes who demonstrate skills beyond the freshman level may be asked to workout with the JV team during the summer as well. The schedule for the JV team this upcoming summer is from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m on Mondays and Wednesdays; and 6:00 to 8:00 a.m on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Our 2021 season was one for the record books, as the Cubs won the first CIF Southern Section Division I Water Polo championship in school history last November. We are returning an experienced team with strong players who will look to make a major impact this fall of 2022. Our 2022 schedule is also very competitive, with prestigious tournaments lined up and multiple opportunities to play against some of the top teams in the nation. I am very excited for our Cubs to step up to this challenge and I look forward to seeing you in our pool.
The Varsity and JV teams will begin fall tryouts on Monday, August 8th. The first day of Frosh tryouts is Monday, August 15th, and it is MANDATORY for all student-athletes interested in playing Loyola Water Polo. Tryout times and other important information will be made available at a later date on the Loyola website.
All necessary paperwork must also be turned in prior to working out. Any questions regarding this paperwork should be directed to Head Athletic Trainer, Tim Moscicki at email@example.com.
Additionally, there is a strength and conditioning component to help prepare you for the upcoming season. Loyola High School offers a weight lifting and conditioning course through the Summer School program, and we encourage anyone who plans to play water polo to participate. (This class begins on June 20th, 2022, and will end on July 22nd, 2022). *Please try to avoid taking this class during the “Zero/0 Period” of the Summer Session.
