    Team Competition
    Suffield's Varsity Water Polo team plays a mixture of single games and mini-tournaments throughout the season against New England Prep School league schools such as Deerfield, Exeter, Andover, Choate, Brunswick, Williston, Hopkins, Hotchkiss and Loomis Chaffee, as well as non-league competition from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Aside from the season-ending New England Prep School Championship tournament, the most competitive tourney of the season is typically the Cardinal Cup Tournament, hosted by perennial powerhouse Greenwich High School, which includes teams from New England, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Canada.

    Team History
    Water polo was established as a varsity sport at Suffield in 1979. The team has generally been built around a combination of experienced players and athletes new to the sport when they arrive at Suffield. The Tigers' competitive teams have qualified for the New England Prep School Championship tournament (aka “the Liquid Four”) in eight of the last ten years, including a second place finish in 2015 and an undefeated championship season in 2009. Hard work, perseverance and camaraderie, as well as respect for teammates and competitors are traditional hallmarks of the water polo team.
