Spring Season is here!


Welcome to Spring 2019 Season!

Practices start the week of March 4th!

We just concluded a very successful Winter Season.  Our teams had very successful campaigns, gaining valuable game experience and challenging themselves against some great competition.  Notably, our 14U boys and 12U Mixed teams won their divisions at the Clovis Winter Rumble. Also, our 14U A Boys placed 4th in the Kap7 tournament Gold Division in Irvine.   Our Girls teams competed in the Frozen Cup and State Cup qualifiers.  Most importantly, we were excited to see how much the players and teams improved during the course of the season. Congratulations, and onward!

We are pleased to announce our new Splashball program!

This special program is for beginner players ages 5-9!  Children will be provided basic skills and understanding of water polo in a fun, recreational format.  There will be nine sessions, held on Sundays for one hour. See more details below!

For Spring, we will start the week of March 4, and conclude the week of April 29. Our coaches will be scheduling eval sessions the week of Feb 22nd.   Our coaches will get to know all players and assess their skills. We will be forming the following practice groups: 10U Coed, 12U Girls, 12U Boys, 14U Girls, 14U Boys, High School Boys and 16U Girls, 18U Girls. The coaches will train and form teams for games/scrimmages based on ability.   As a reminder, everyone is welcome, from beginner through advanced! We will form groups that match your child’s level of experience. All players will have opportunities to play in games and tournaments this Spring.  The development teams will play in local tournaments with other development teams. Our competitive groups will compete in local, and 1-2 travel tournaments (being finalized)   Please refer to our tournament schedule for dates.

Registration is now open!  Please do so ASAP! All links are below and on our website under “Registration”.
