Tournament Results & Pictures

It was a busy weekend for all of us! Our Freshmen finished 2nd in the Mira Costa Frosh/Soph Tournament and the Varsity Team finished 12th in the Santa Barbara Invitational Tournament. Great job Mustangs! A big shout out to all of the families who helped in the snack shack and to all of the athletes who helped keep score and run the clocks. Without your help, Mira Costa would not have hosted a successful tournament!

This is the link to DD Bartley's Smug Mug so that you can download and save some of her amazing photos. She took pictures at the Frosh/Soph Tournament this past weekend. Enjoy...  MCHS Water Polo

USA Water Polo JO All-American Nominees

Congratulations to Mira Costa's USA Water Polo JO All-American Nominees Jake Carter, Bernardo Herzer and Leigh Lyter. You are truly amazing athletes!

Weekly Team Dinners (Varsity and JV/FS)

Every year our water polo families host our teams in their homes or at a restaurant for "Team Dinners". This is a way for you to get to know the players and coaches and for the players to bond. You can sign up as a group or host solo. You will be providing food for 30 (very hungry) children and Coaches. Most of the time the boys eat quickly and run home to do homework, so it is not an all-night affair. The dinners are immediately following the Costa practices, so @ 4:45PM for Varsity and @ 6:15PM for JV/FS.

Click on Varsity Team Dinner or JV/Frosh/Soph Team Dinner to sign up.

Snack Shack - Info About Shifts & Donations

The "Snack Shack" as it is affectionately referred to, is one of our largest fundraising and most fun activities that the Aquatics programs offer. It is open at all of our home games and tournaments. It takes a lot of man-power and donations to make it successful. Our team of Jane Tournat, Jane Tate, Giselina Romero, and Shelley Theodore will be organizing again this year!

Every family is required to participate in some way to the success of this program. If you are unable to donate your time or you are not a shopper, no problem, you can "buy out" and let the team do the work. A suggested donation of $50 made out MBX (with snack stand and your last name in the comment section) will let us do the shopping for what we need that week. Otherwise, please sign up for at least two shifts and two snack stand donations here! The Shack is truly the cool place to hang out! For questions, please call Jane Tournat at 310-871-7742.

New Players: Frequently Asked Questions

For new athletes and their families here is a list of the most commonly asked questions.  Feel free to reach out to Susan Rossow at costaboyswp@gmail.com if you have additional questions.

Donations Welcome

Costa Boys Water Polo welcomes any additional donations throughout the season/year.  The funds we raise through our various programs help offset the cost of coaches' stipends, equipment, busses for travel to games, and many other things. In addition to volunteers to run the snack shack, host dinners, and help with other events, any cash donation of any amount is very much appreciated.  Please use this link or contact Susan Rossow and Bernie Zaia for more information.
