SJA Winter Registration Now Open!
Welcome to SJA Winter 2019 Season!
Practices start the week of December 2nd!
SJA Water Polo is excited to announce our Winter Season! Congratulations to all of our high school members on their school seasons! We saw a lot of great water polo being played! We also enjoyed a very successful Summer Season, highlighted by record finishes in the USA Water Polo National Junior Olympics. Our 14U Boys, 12U Boys and 10U CoEd teams competed in the top Championship Bracket, finishing 33rd, 41st and 26th (Silver Medal in Gold Division!) in the nation. Our 14U Girls competed in the Championship bracket, finishing 33rd in the nation. This was truly a banner year for our age groupers, and we are very proud!
Led by Eric Rise (Leland High School Varsity Girls Coach, 4-time CIF-CCS Champion coach) and Cyrus Kahangi (Leland High School Varsity Coach, USA Water Polo Olympic Development Program Coach and CIF-CCS Champion coach), our club offers programs for all levels of play, from beginner to top-level competitive teams.
