Summer Polo

Update: May 19, 2020

Due to the virus, TUSD has announced it is closing all facilities to outside user groups for the duration of Summer 2020. This means that unfortunately we will not be offering any summer programs. TU hopes to return to action in the Fall for our pre-high school mixed group.



Turlock United will look to participate in as many tournaments as possible during the summer. Listed below are the events TU participated in 2019 with *anticipated* dates.

For 2020, TU is looking to participate in the US National Junior Olympics which will be hosted in the Bay Area. JOs is the premier summer event for youth age-group water polo. As a national event, participation requires early commitment, extra time and additional expenses.

2020 SUMMER PROGRAM FEES – includes practices only

  • $250 – High School Program
  • $200 – Pre-High School Program
  • $50 – Intro Clinic Session (one week)


  • New for 2020, TU will charge athletes for each tournament attended. While this creates more paperwork, it makes the distribution of expenses more fair. Costs will be determined by each individual tournament entry fee as being divided among the players participating. Each tournament has a different fee with the regional (Golden State) and national events (Junior Olympics) having significantly higher fees than local events.
  • Anticipate $15-30 per tournament for local events, higher for regional and national events.

Please mail checks payable to: Turlock United Water Polo Club | 2713 Lester Road | Denair CA | 95316   On the memo line, please write player(s) name(s) & playing age(s).


  • Based on previous years, we anticipate that Pitman Pool will be closed June 1 – 12, so all practices are likely to be at THS during these first two weeks.
  • USWP membership required for all athletes and coaches. See Registration page for more information.
  • First-time players can take advantage of USWP’s new free 2-week “Trial Membership.” This is only for first-time players and can only be used once in a lifetime. Trial Membership good for Phase 1 (Weeks 1 & 2) only.
  • Group placement for Phase 2 is determined by coaches during evaluation phase. Player evaluation and placement will continue throughout the training/comp phase and may change during the season.
  • Athletes must be able to swim four (4) pool lengths without wall, lane-line, or other assistance.
