South Salem Saxon Water Polo
On July 30, 2020 the Oregon High School Water Polo board elected to cancel the fall water polo season. This decision was not made lightly. In the coming months efforts will be made to explore other options for the 2020-2021 school year. As this information becomes available, we will communicate it with our member families.

Fall Polo Opportunity
Willamette Valley Water Polo will be starting fall polo on September 19th open to all ages at the Albany pool 10 am to 12 pm.
With the postponement of the high school polo season there is a need for the kids to get in some much need physical activities as well as some mental relief. Practices will be managed under all current guidelines of the State of Oregon, Albany Pool and the CDC so as to maintain a safe and fun place for the kids to come each Saturday. These practices will focus on fundamentals, which EVERY player needs to work on, thus providing a solid base that is sometimes hard to build even in a normal high school season.
Cost: Free to all current WVA members; for non-members wishing to get a little pool time or preparation for the “spring” High school season a $25.00 per month fee will be assessed. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Player Registration Process
Player registration is a 2-part process.

Annual Saxon October Tournament
Our annual October tournament is tentatively scheduled for October 16 - 18, 2020. As more details are determined in regards to what the season will look like more information will be provided. Registration will open AFTER a determination of the season takes place. For more information, visit the tournament web page.
TeamApp is how we, as a club, communicate on a regular basis. If you have not yet signed up for TeamApp, please do so.
When signing up, select the appropriate group (there is now an alumni section as well).
Throughout the season there is a need for volunteers. At all of our home games we need at least 3 people to work the table (no table workers - no game). There will be a training event at one of our early season practices and opportunites for training throughout the season. There are also other opportunities throughout the season at various events. If you are interested in helping out, please speak to one of our board members and we can get you taken care of. Volunteering is a GREAT way to help to provide a positive experience for all of our players.
Not Yet a High School Player...
If you are not yet a high school player, there are area water polo clubs that run spring and fall leagues. Many of our players participate in club polo as a way to enhance their skills.
