What a great first session of Winter Intro water polo. We’ve had an awesome turnout and it was a pleasure to see so many smiles. Looking forward to the January session. Look for more information about the Clovis Winter Rumble near the end of January.
As we head off to the Holidays for a couple of weeks, here are a few reminders…
USA WATER POLO
All players must be renewed for 2019 in order to resume on January 8. Bronze level membership is appropriate.
CLOVIS WINTER RUMBLE: January 26
Stay tuned for more information.
Below are two YouTube videos that cover how to tread water. Please view these videos with your young players. Please ask your young players to explain to you what they are learning in an attempt to reinforce their understanding of things. Also for those who are not yet there, these are leg motions that can be done without any water and simply by sitting on the edge of a chair.

Congratulations to both Pitman and Turlock on their outstanding 2018 seasons! Following a 1-2 CCAL finish, the #6 seed Bulldogs handled Armijo of Fairfield while the #10 Pride upset #7 Lincoln to advance to the Quarterfinals. Pitman then fell to #2 Jesuit and Turlock was outmatched by #3 Davis, both games ending with the same score, 16-3.
2019 looks to bring these two squads together for a Summer Polo run that will help elevate the level of play for both schools and all the student athletes. Bring on 2019!
The North/South Senior All-Star Game is set for Saturday, November 17. The South will feature seniors from Turlock and Pitman, and should put up an exciting display for their final high school competition.
