We are getting close to starting up polo:). Wanted to give everyone a heads up email. The season will start on May 14th through JO's late July. Essentially the summer is 10 weeks long and super important to get everyone prepared for the Fall High School Season Ahead. I have broke the groups down to 2 groups of athletes. Varsity training group and JV training group rosters are below.
Below is some information on the summer, 1st two weeks of practice upcoming summer. Full Summer Flyer - Link
Varsity Group - The varsity group is comprised of 22 athletes who are challenging for 18 ish spots for the summer. I will tell everyone where they are at in the group at the end of the week, especially tell them if we had to cut to 14 (our fall #) where they would be on the list. The reason we do so early it this way is to allow the athletes to make a decision if they want to challenge it out over the summer. Junior and Seniors should make varsity.Depending on #s and athletes will depend on playing JV again.
The Summer Varsity training group is expected for varsity athletes, the expectation extends to all the events and dates.
JV Group - The JV group is the returning JV athletes and incoming new athletes. This group is designed to get the new athletes ready to play and progress the returning athletes for the summer ahead. The best way to have a successful career is to attend all events. We get that the JV group has some other prior summer events. As athletes progress through the program we want them to attend everything:).
Whats Junior Olympics - USA Water Polo host the worlds largest water polo event. This year its at San Jose July 26 - 30th. This is our major event for the summer. This what we are working to do / qualify for in the summer. We will attempt to qualify at the 18s, 16s, and 14s this summer.
