Top US Prep Programs Represented on Youth Championships Rosters

The World Youth Water Polo Championships begin on December 1 in Perth, Australia. The US selections have been set with both squads choosing representatives of some of the best high school (and collegiate) programs in the nation.

Both teams begin play on the 2nd with very different opponents: the men against powerhouse Hungary, and the women against India. Here are the final rosters, and the schools each player and coach represents.
