20th reunion alumni reports

2015 is the 20th year of the Stanford Girls Water Polo Club and we’re going to celebrate next month! Our reunion weekend will take place on Friday June 26 and Saturday June 27, and all the current club members will be involved.

Our summer tradition of club players doing reports on the USA National Team or players from international teams is taking a twist – we are going to do reports on our club alums!

Many of the alums have been in touch about the reunion and they are so excited to see their teammates and coaches – and play some polo as well. They can’t wait to hear from you and share their water polo stories and talk about their lives beyond the sport. These women are great role models and will inspire you as you think about your future in athletics, academics, and career.

Contact Coach Kyle (kyle@stanfordwaterpolo.com) to be assigned an alum to contact, interview, and report on. Be sure to include your age. Kyle will give you the guidelines for the interview and contact info.  All 2015 Cal Cup team members are required to participate in this activity.

If your alum is attending the reunion, there will be a brunch on Saturday June 27 for you to meet up with them before the alumni games!

Winter 2014-15 info coming soon

We are working on finalizing the information for the winter season. The info and registration instructions will be posted on the website (late October/early November). Registration is first-come-first-served. If you would like an email alert, subscribe on the right side of the home page.
Here is the link to last winter’s information. Not all the details will be the same, but we hope to have a good amount of continuity in terms of practice days/times.
For tournament dates, you can look at the Calendar link on the front page of stanfordwaterpolo.com. They are current for the 2014-15 winter season.
There will not be separate tryouts for high school athletes – simply register for the winter season and the coaching staff will evaluate all athletes at workouts to place them in appropriate training groups. Evaluation by the staff is ongoing throughout the season.
