TPC SHARKS WATER POLO SUMMER OF 2017 UPDATE

2017 National Junior Olympics

The 2016-17 club water polo season came to its conclusion at the end of July. TPC SHARKS U14 & U12 teams have met and exceeded their goals by qualifying to participate in the 2017 National Junior Olympics (National Championship) in Orange County.

The U14 boys team qualified for NJOs for the first time ever! They ended with 4 wins and 4 losses and took 11th place in the bronze group of the U14 Classic division – that means 83rd place in USA out of 120 participating teams! We also ended only 10 places behind our local Marin county rival, Shaq team, that took 73rd place. WELL DONE BOYS!!! Special thank you goes to coach Erik Zech!

We also ended only 18 places behind our local Marin county rival Shaq. WELL DONE BOYS!!! Special thank you goes to coach Jackson Hettler (TPC SHARK Alumni currently playing at CAL Berkeley)!

2017 CROATIA WATER POLO CRUISE/CAMP

The TPC SHARKS U14 team in their preparation for the NJOs participated in our annual summer Croatia Water Polo Cruise Camp during the second week of July. All players and parents alike had a great time and the players came back as a new team with a lot of new knowledge that they put to work at the NJOs. We are already looking forward to next summer and the opportunity to learn more!
