About MidValley Water Polo Club

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.

Would You Like To Join Our Team?

Whether you're a novice or an experienced water polo player, we would love to have you on our team.

The Game

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

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.

Levels of Play/Teams

"Splash Ball"

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. 

Novice Water Polo Program

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. 

Club Travelling 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:

  • Our High School Boys teams playing in international tournaments in Vancouver and Victoria British Columbia.
  • Our 10 & Under Mixed Team finishing 12th nationally at this Summer’s Junior Olympics held at Stanford University (July-Aug. 2014).
  • Our 12 & Under Boys Team finishing 6th nationally at this Summer’s Junior Olympics held at Stanford University (July-Aug. 2014); 
    2nd at the California State Championships this past Spring; and
    1st at the 2014 Hale Summer Championship.
