Boys Water Polo uses email for it’s primary form of communication so please include any parent and/or athlete email addresses that you’d like to receive correspondence.

July 20 remains the all-important date in which we will learn about the future of Fall Sports for the 2020-21 school year. That said, athletes will need their Sports Physical Packet turned in before the start of official training. Packets are available at the back door of the main office and must be turned in directly to the Athletic Trainer – Mr. Collins – at the following times: July 13-17 | 20-24 | 27-30 | 12-6pm. Packets must be hand-delivered to the athletic training room (next to the boys locker room). Do not turn into office, mail, or email. A checklist of what needs to be returned is on the front page of packet. Masks will be required and physical distancing must be maintained. Only one family unit (athlete and/or one adult parent from same household) will be allowed at a time.
The CIF announced today that on July 20th they will release details for the start of Fall Sports.
TUSD announced today guidelines for Fall Sports to begin summer conditioning on Monday, June 15. Unfortunately TUSD will not allow Water Polo to use the pool for conditioning. On-land work is our only option. Because of this, Boys Water Polo will not begin conditioning yet. Please stay tuned for more information. Athletes are encouraged to maintain a personal training program similar to what we did during the school closure last spring. There are plenty of water polo specific workout options in the Boys Water Polo Google Classroom.
Due to the virus, TUSD has closed all facilities to outside user groups for the duration of Summer 2020. This means that unfortunately Turlock United Water Polo Club will not be offering a summer program.
