Originally founded in 1999, MidValley Water Polo started with 8 girls. We have grown, and in our 2014 Summer Session, we had over 220 kids aged 4 -18 playing at various skill levels, from beginners' “splashball” to competitive travelling teams that competed in the USA Junior Olympics held in Stanford, Northern California. We hold practice year-round.
Whether you're a novice or an experienced water polo player, we would love to have you on our team.

Water polo has a reputation as one of the toughest, most physically demanding team sports in the world. It is a game that combines the tactical elements and the physical demands of such diverse sports as swimming, soccer, basketball, ice hockey, and rugby.
Our mission is to introduce kids 4-18 to the sport of water polo, and teach them the swimming skills, stamina training, and other skills necessary to excel in this demanding sport.
The mental aspects of water polo often times determine the outcome more than the physical play.
Accordingly, as part of our program, we teach kids to set high expectations for themselves, work hard to meet them, and push them to challenge themselves not only in the pool, but in their day-to-day lives.
Our Splash Ball Program serves as an introduction to water polo. It teaches kids 4-10 the basics of water polo and swimming, and basic water safety skills.
By way of analogy, the Splash Ball Program is to water polo as T-Ball is to Little League Baseball.
Our Novice Water Polo Program is focused on developing endurance and teaching fundamental water polo skills to kids 8-11. It serves as the bridge to our competitive travel teams.
Our Club Travelling Teams Program competes locally, nationally, and internationally at the 10 & Under, 12 & U Boys, 12 & U Girls, 14 & U Boys, 14 & U Girls, 16&U Boys, and 18&U Boys levels.
Our Travelling Teams' recent accomplishments include the following:
