Last Thursday, USA Water Polo announced their plans for the 2022 Junior Olympics this summer (see email below) and so we are beginning to make our training plans accordingly. If we have enough interested players to enter teams into the Junior Olympics, we will choose to compete in Session III: July 28-31 in Dallas, Texas. The age category of the teams we will enter is based on those who sign up (Relevant Divisions are Girls & Boys 14U, 16U, 18U). The training portion of the trip will be roughly the 2 weeks leading up to the Junior Olympics – there is flexibility on the exact dates based on players’ availability. Raider WP organizes flights, hotels and transportation in Dallas.

This is a reminder that players should bring a workout outfit and sneakers each day in case there is lightning. If the school’s lightning alarm sounds, our coaches will run a dry land workout in a safe area on campus (ie. body weight exercises, passing on land,etc) until the all clear alarm goes off or until the end of practice. They will continue to practice as usual in rain and only clear the pool deck if there is lightning.
