  • Summer Practice Schedule - our practice times will remain generally the same for June, July and August. We will keep evening and Saturday/Sunday practices. We will NOT be holding practices August 6-22, 2021, to give our athletes a well deserved break and the  coaches a chance to regroup  and prepare for the upcoming new school year/season. All athletes will need to re-register in mid-August for the 2021-22 school year once we announce the new registration is open.
  • New Parents - Tournaments 101 is a web page under the Youth Water Polo tab! If you are new to the team or need a refresher on how game days, tournaments, USAWP, tournament registration, etc. works please read it.
    This should help alleviate the many questions. Let us know if you think it’s helpful!
  • Junior Olympics News
    We have 87 athletes signed up to go to the Junior Olympics!  We plan to take 6 teams: 18U boys, 16U boys, two 14U boys, 14U girls, and one 12U boys.  We’ll have the Qualifier in Texas in mid-June, and hopefully all of our teams will qualify to go to the NJO tournament in July.  Traditionally this tournament takes place in California, but just recently, USA Water Polo announced some of it is being moved to Dallas due to continued California COVID restrictions.
