Introduction Water polo first emerged in the United Kingdom at the end of the 19th century as an alternative to football during the summer months, and it was the first Olympic team sport. This young sport discipline has undergone major changes to its rules over time since the first official regulations in 1876; the changes are ongoing, with the latest amendments made by the International Amateur Swimming Federation (FINA) in 2013. These changes have led to the emergence of three very distinct stages in the game. Scientific interest in water polo tends to focus on

Introduction High-level water-polo players participate in a prolonged competitive period including pre-season and in-season training. Especially during the in-season period, high-level players participate in an official match almost every week and train up to nine times per week ( Lupo et al., 2014b ). In most of the European Leagues, the competitive period is organized in two phases. In the first phase, all teams compete against each other twice, aiming at adding victories to classification. In the second phase, only the top classified teams compete in a play

Introduction Water polo is a sport with a growing worldwide interest, particularly for research purposes, with a noticeable increase in the number of recent publications ( Prieto et al., 2013 ). The available research has tried to identify the performance characteristics of the game for both men´s and women´s competitions ( Escalante et al., 2011 , 2012 ; Lupo et al., 2010 , 2012 ). The main aim of the performance analysis is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the water polo teams in order to improve their performance ( Carling et al., 2005 , 2009

Introduction Water polo is a highly demanding and complex team sport, requiring repeated sprints at maximum speed interspersed with swimming at lower speeds during the game, often with changes of direction. Furthermore, it requires technically skilled movements and contact with the opponent involving changing from a vertical to a horizontal position while playing ( Galy et al., 2014 ; Melchiorri et al., 2010 ; Smith, 1998 ). Change of game rules by Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA) in 2005 made playing even more demanding ( Melchiorri et al., 2010
