USA Water Polo has released details about Junior Olympics this summer!
LOCATION: Orange County, Irvine, CA 92604
2021 Session 1- July 17-20 includes Boys 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U
2021 Session 2- July 22-25 includes Girls 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U & Mixed 10U, 12U
As of now only 48 teams for each age group are able to participate. Our NEZ zone is only getting 2 or 3 allocations per age group. For example, for 16U, there are 7 teams that would like to go, but there are only two spots as of now. On Wednesday, all the head coaches in our zone will meet and discuss what is the best way to decide which team can go. Typically, we hold JO qualifiers to decide this, but as of now we are not sure if we will be able to have them. Our first step is to see how many of our players are interested in going for each team. Please respond on our website by Wednesday 4/14, you will see a notification for this soon. If you respond yes, this is not a final response, we are just trying to have an idea of interest. If you are not sure, but are considering going, please choose yes. If you are sure you will not go, please select no, so we have a better idea of participation. Also, if we do not have enough players in a specific group, we may be able to combine with another team. I apologize for short notice, this information was just released to us.
I will be holding a parents meeting over Zoom on Sunday 4/18. 12/14U parents will meet at 9 to 945 am. 16/18U parents will meet at 945 am to 1030 am. I will discuss all the details from the meeting with the head coaches in our zone. The link will be sent out in the next few days.
