We are Pioneers
" We never give up. We're not done until all of us are done. We are accountable to one another."
Pioneer Club Training Camp participation is not required to play water polo on the high school team in the fall. Student-athletes may choose which sessions they attend each day. Players may make a single payment of $200.00 or spread it over two months with a payment of $100.00 in May and June respectively. Financial ability will not prohibit a willing athlete to participate.
This is an important year for our team to recover from missing the 2020 season. CIF is allowing us to practice straight through from June through July and into the pre-season in August.
Because our numbers are low, we will be working out with the SOVA Boys 18U team this summer to ensure we have enough players to scrimmage. They will join our practice at least two days a week during the week.
SOVA Summer Session for Boys 18U starts May 17 - two nights a week and Saturday. Pioneer Polo players can attend those practices
Pioneer Polo Summer Camp fees will automatically enroll you in SOVA at no additional cost. Pioneer Polo players will be able to attend SOVA shooting & goalie clinics on Fridays and SOVA Saturday practices. DO NOT register on the SOVA website. SOVA administration will add you to the SOVA website when we submit your name to SOVA as registered for Pioneer Polo.
To ensure our Pioneer Polo players get many games and tournaments this summer we will sometimes play as Pioneer Polo and sometimes play as SOVA. All tournament fees are separate from Pioneer Polo Summer Camp Fees. We will also seek out scrimmage opportunities with other clubs and high school teams to get playing experience without the tournament costs.
There are two tournaments coming up right away. Arroyo Grande on Saturday, June 5, and the Hardcore Cup at pools in the Fresno-Clovis area on June 12 & 13th. We will go combined with SOVA. If we have enough players, we will bring an A and a B team. We will look for the best competition we can find.
