Utah High School Tournament (Feb 25-27)

California Republic Water Polo Club is thrilled to announce that we’ll be participating in an water polo tournament in Ogden, Utah this February 25-27, 2021. This tournament is open to high school age boys and girls.

It’s been almost a full year since our club last competed in a tournament, and, like many of you, we can’t wait to see a real water polo game again! Currently, COVID-19 restrictions across the state of California are preventing anyone from hosting a tournament in our state. But others states, like Utah, are allowing tournaments to held under strict COVID-19 guidelines. Many of our club members have expressed tremendous interest in out-of-state competition, so we’re going to enter this tournament in Ogden, Utah.

If you are interested in participating in this tournament, please read carefully through all of the details below. If you wish to participate after going through all the details below, please use the registration form at the bottom of this page to sign-up.
