The South Florida International Water Polo Tournament, hosted by the South Florida Water Polo Club of Fort Lauderdale, will run Friday, February 15, through Sunday, February 17 at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex. Admission is $7 per day or $15 for a three-day pass.
In six short years, the South Florida International Water Polo Tournament has become one of the most prestigious age group tournaments in North America, drawing college scouts and some of the best age group players in the world to Coral Springs and Broward County. Among the college programs sending representatives are three of the top five Division 1 programs in the nation, including Stanford, UC Santa Barbara and Loyola Marymount.
This year’s event will have 54 teams, representing seven countries, competing in 3 divisions: 19 and under for girls and boys, and 16 and under for boys. International teams participating include Israel, Hungary, Slovenia, Russia, Canada and Puerto Rico. California has the most entries, with 20 teams coming from the Golden State.
This year, the City will webcast the tournament for those who cannot make it out to the complex to watch it in the convenience of their own home. Cost is only $35 for a day pass, or $5.50 per game. To view the webcast on the date of the event, please visit aquaticcomplex.com.
“This is a great opportunity to see junior water polo talent from around the world,” Aquatic Complex director Mike McGoun said.
