Boys Water Polo

Dear Titan Alumni, family and friends,

As an alumnus of Poway High School and the head coach of Poway High School boys’ water polo, I want to keep you informed about what’s going on with the current boys program. The program really needs your support more than ever as most of the costs are covered by the players and their parents. Our student/athletes are working hard running various fundraisers throughout the fall season, and your financial support is integral to the continued success, team building, and fun of competing for the Poway High School boys’ water polo program. This year we need to raise funds to help us pay for coach’s stipends, tournament entrance fees, equipment and transportation fees (buses to and from games).

Over the past year, our boys have been at the forefront of many exciting changes. The Boys’ water polo team has come a long way and recaptured the 2016 Palomar league title (the first in 12 years) in a thrilling final league game against our rival Rancho Bernardo. We also moved from Division 2 into the Open Division for the 2016 CIF Championship, a division reserved for the top eight schools in San Diego. This year our boys will be traveling to Orange County to compete in the prestigious Villa Park tournament competing against some of the best schools in the country. The fall 2017 season marks the first time in CIF history we will have the opportunity to compete for a Southern Section title, competing against the best schools from San Diego, LA and Orange County. In 2018, CIF will introduce a state championship play off tournament and one of our goals is to be a part of that elite group.

Our current boys’ water polo team would greatly appreciate your continued support and commitment to Poway High School water polo by providing a financial donation. You can write a check payable to, “Poway High School ASB”, and please write, “BOYS water polo” on the memo line. You can also donate online at under the donation page. In addition, we have attached a PDF giving you the option of showing your support by being recognized on the pool deck with a banner of your desired size. The banners will hang on the surrounding pool fences and can be personal or for a business. For example, we have a few families donating 5’x5’ signs that read “The Smith family” supports PHS boys’ water polo or substitute a business name.

Our annual Alumni game will be Saturday August 26th at 9am, so save the date, spread the word, and we will see you in the pool!

Checks can be mailed to:
