"The Navy SEALs have produced data that indicates young men who play water polo succeed more often in SEAL basic training than other candidates. Consequently, the SEALs formed a relationship with USA Water Polo to raise awareness about Navy SEAL careers among water polo athletes.

"The sport of water polo produces mentally and physically tough athletes," said Navy SEAL Capt. Adam Curtis, director of the SEAL and SWCC Scout Team. "That toughness coupled with water polo players' affinity for the water makes them viable candidates for Navy SEAL Teams."
