The first games of 'aquatic football' were played at the Arlington in the late s the Club was founded in , with a ball constructed of India rubber.
This "water rugby" came to be called "water polo" based on the English pronunciation of the Balti word for ball, pulu. Players held underwater for lengthy periods usually surrendered possession.
The goalie stood outside the playing area and defended the goal by jumping in on any opponent attempting to score by placing the ball on the deck.
The rules of water polo cover the play, procedures, equipment and officiating of water polo. These rules are similar throughout the world, although slight variations to the rules do occur regionally and depending on the governing body.
There are seven players in the water from each team at one time. There are six players that play out and one goalkeeper.
Unlike most common team sports, there is little positional play; field players will often fill several positions throughout the game as situations demand.
These positions usually consist of a center forward, a center back, the two wing players and the two drivers.
Players who are skilled in all positions of offense or defense are called utility players. Utility players tend to come off of the bench, though this is not absolute.
Certain body types are more suited for particular positions, and left-handed players are especially coveted on the right-hand side of the field, allowing teams to launch two-sided attacks.
The offensive positions include: The wings, drivers and point are often called the perimeter players; while the hole-set directs play.
There is a typical numbering system for these positions in U. NCAA men's division one polo. Beginning with the offensive wing to the opposing goalie's right side is called one.
The flat in a counter clockwise from one is called two. Moving along in the same direction the point player is three, the next flat is four, the final wing is five, and the hole set is called six.
Additionally, the position in which a player is can give advantages based on a player's handedness, to improve a shooting or passing angle for example, the right wing is often left handed.
The center sets up in front of the opposing team's goalie and scores the most individually especially during lower level play where flats do not have the required strength to effectively shoot from outside or to penetrate and then pass to teammates like the point guard in basketball, or center midfield player in soccer.
The center's position nearest to the goal allows explosive shots from close-range. Defensive positions are often the same, but just switched from offence to defence.
For example, the centre forward or hole set, who directs the attack on offence, on defence is known as "hole D" also known as set guard, hole guard, hole check, pit defence or two-metre defence , and guards the opposing team's centre forward also called the hole.
Defence can be played man-to-man or in zones , such as a 2—4 four defenders along the goal line. It can also be played as a combination of the two in what is known as an " M drop " defence, in which the point defender moves away "sloughs off" his man into a zone in order to better defend the centre position.
In this defence, the two wing defenders split the area furthest from the goal, allowing them a clearer lane for the counter-attack if their team recovers the ball.
The goalkeeper has the main role in blocking shots against the goal as well as guiding and informing their defense of imposing threats and gaps in the defense.
The goalkeeper usually begins the offensive play by passing the ball across the pool to an attacker. It is not unusual for a goalkeeper to make an assisting pass to a goal on a break away.
The goalkeeper is given several privileges above those of the other players, but only within the five-meter area in front of their own goal: In general, a foul that would cause an ejection of a field player might bring on a five-metre shot on the goalkeeper.
The goalkeeper also has one limitation that other players do not have: The most basic positional set up is known as a "3—3", so called because there are two lines in front of the opponent's goal.
Another set up, used more by professional teams, is known as an "arc", "umbrella", or "mushroom"; perimeter players form the shape of an arc around the goal, with the hole set as the handle or stalk.
Yet another option for offensive set is called a 4—2 or double hole; there are two center forward offensive players in front of the goal. Double hole is most often used in "man up" situations, or when the defense has only one skilled "hole D", or to draw in a defender and then pass out to a perimeter player for a shot "kick out".
Another, albeit less common offense, is the "motion c", sometimes nicknamed "washing machine offence", in which two "weak-side" to the right of the goal for right-handed players perimeter players set up as a wing and a flat.
The remaining four players swim in square pattern in which a player swims from the point to the hole and then out to the strong side wing.
The wing moves to the flat and the flat to the point. The weak side wing and flat then control the tempo of play and try to make passes into the player driving towards the centre forward who can then either shoot or pass.
This form of offence is used when no dominate hole set is available, or the hole defence is too strong. It is also seen much more often in women's water polo where teams may lack a player of sufficient size or strength to set up in the centre forward.
The best advantage to this system is it makes man-coverage much more difficult for the defender and allows the offence to control the game tempo better once the players are "set up".
The main drawback is this constant motion can be very tiring as well as somewhat predictable as to where the next pass is going to go.
When the offence takes possession of the ball, the strategy is to advance the ball down the field of play and to score a goal.
Players can move the ball by throwing it to a teammate or swimming with the ball in front of them dribbling. If an attacker advances inside the 2-metre line without the ball or before the ball is inside the 2-metre area, s he is ruled offside and the ball is turned over to the defence.
This is often overlooked if the attacker is well to the side of the pool or when the ball is at the other side of the pool.
The key to the offence is to accurately pass or "set" the ball into the centre forward or hole set, positioned directly in front of the goal "the hole".
Any field player may throw the hole set a "wet pass". A wet pass is one that hits the water just outside the hole set's reach.
A dry pass may also be used.
