  • Attention Ripon Aquatics Water Polo Players:

    There has been talk about combining area teams to make an are All-Star Team for Junior Olympics. This will most likely happen in the 2016 season. As of now, we are working with Big Valley in Stockton for the boys and SOAK in Oakdale for the girls to send them anyone interested in trying out for their All-Star team to help get the ball rolling for 2016. If you are interested in being part of this please look at the info below. If you make the team you would only be required to make a practice with Big Valley or SOAK once a week. The rest of the time you stay in Ripon.

    This does not mean that Ripon Aquatics will not take teams to JO's. If we have enough to field teams and qualify, we will attend JO's this summer. Ripon Aquatics will have its JO's meeting towards the end of April which will include the summer tournament schedule and practice schedule. Any other questions please talk to Coach Erik.

    SOAK: Oakdale (all age groups)
    Try out date will be in later May.
