MS Water Polo
The Haverford Middle School Water Polo program began in 2003. Since that time, the program has seen tremendous success, accumulating an overall record of 66-5. There are very few schools that field a middle school water polo team, however the Fords compete against Germantown Academy, Penn Charter, Friends Central, Malvern Prep, and the Episcopal Academy. A majority of the athletes that round out the Varsity and Junior Varsity water polo squads began playing water polo in middle school at Haverford.
