  • 3. When it was invented?
  • 4. When it was invented <ul><li>The game was invented in 1969 by now retired UC Davis associate athletic </li></ul><ul><li>director of intramural sports and sport clubs, Gary Colberg. Noticing how </li></ul><ul><li>much fun the water polo team was having, Mr. Colberg thought up the idea </li></ul><ul><li>of using tubes so that people with no experience in water polo could still </li></ul><ul><li>enjoy the game. </li></ul><ul><li>Water polo is a rapidly growing sport in the United States and </li></ul><ul><li>internationally as well. </li></ul>
  • 5. Introduction
  • 6. Introduction <ul><li>Water polo is a team water sport that combines some elements of </li></ul><ul><li>swimming and basketball. Teams are composed of about 12 players, </li></ul><ul><li>depending on rules of the league. Seven players are in the pool at a time, </li></ul><ul><li>which includes one goalie and six field players. </li></ul><ul><li>The winner of the game is the team that scores the most points, with </li></ul><ul><li>each goal being worth one point. </li></ul><ul><li>-One player on each team is designated the goalkeeper, assigned to </li></ul><ul><li>deflect or catch any shots at goal. The goalkeeper is the only player </li></ul><ul><li>who can touch the ball with both hands at any time. </li></ul><ul><li>- Players are not permitted to push the ball underwater. </li></ul><ul><li>-There are seven players in the water from each team at one time. </li></ul><ul><li>There are six fielders and one goalkeeper. </li></ul><ul><li>Usually, men play four 7-minute quarters while women play four 6-minute </li></ul><ul><li>Quarters. </li></ul>
  • 7. Rules of water polo
  • 8. Rules of water polo <ul><li>There&apos;s no intentional contact with any other player allowed. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Players aren&apos;t permitted to touch the ball with two hands. </li></ul><ul><li>3. There are only two fouls allowed during a game, more than this and the referee will eject you. </li></ul><ul><li>4. There is no hitting another players arm while he is passing or holding the ball. </li></ul><ul><li>5. No player may push off from a defensive player. This will result in the referee in calling a foul on that player. </li></ul><ul><li>6. There&apos;s no touching the bottom or sides of the swimming pool. </li></ul>

  • 10. Starting play
  • 11. Starting play <ul><li>At the start of each period, teams line up on their own goal </li></ul><ul><li>line. Three players go to both sides of the goal; the goal- </li></ul><ul><li>keeper starts in the goal. At the referee&apos;s whistle, both </li></ul><ul><li>teams swim to midpoint of the field (known as the sprint or </li></ul><ul><li>the swim-off). </li></ul><ul><li>In International competition the ball is placed in the middle </li></ul><ul><li>of the pool and is supported with a floating ring. The first </li></ul><ul><li>team to recover the ball becomes the attacker until a goal </li></ul><ul><li>is scored or the defenders recover the ball. After a goal is </li></ul><ul><li>scored, the teams line up anywhere within their halves of </li></ul><ul><li>play, but usually along the midpoint of the pool. </li></ul>
  • 12. Water polo equipment
  • 13. Water polo equipment <ul><li>- Uniforms consist of swimsuits for both men and women, as well as a cap on </li></ul><ul><li>the head with plastic ear protectors and the player&apos;s number on both </li></ul><ul><li>sides. Away teams wear lighter color caps, while home wears the darker </li></ul><ul><li>color. </li></ul><ul><li>-Ball: A water polo ball is constructed of waterproof material to allow it to </li></ul><ul><li>float on the water. The cover has a special texture so it won&apos;t slip from </li></ul><ul><li>the hands of a player. The size of the ball is different for men&apos;s and </li></ul><ul><li>women&apos;s games. </li></ul><ul><li>-Caps: A water polo cap is used to protect the players&apos; heads and ears, </li></ul><ul><li>and to identify them. Home team field players wear numbered light or dark </li></ul><ul><li>caps, and visiting team field players wear contrasting caps. Both starting </li></ul><ul><li>goalkeepers wear (quartered) red caps, numbered &amp;quot;1“. </li></ul>

  • 15. <ul><li>Water polo is a growing sport for good reason, and it may soon be one of </li></ul><ul><li>the leading sports for both men and women&apos;s athletics. </li></ul>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tY31Ukzn0_c
