Placer Valley Tourism has announced that the Sierra Shoot Out Water Polo tournament is back for another year at Sierra College in Rocklin, CA. The junior college has hosted this high school tournament for over 20 years now, and 2014 brings another installment. The tournament will also continue to be a fundraiser for the Sierra College aquatics complex, which it has been in previous years.
The tournament takes place on two different weekends, with the men's games held September 5-6, and the women's games held September 12-13. Last year, there were 40 men's teams and 44 women's teams. Teams come from all over Northern California, with some coming from as far as the Fresno area.
The Sierra Shoot Out Tournament has notoriously been one of the top High School Water Polo tournaments in the nation, especially on the women's side. For years, it has been considered one of the best and most competitive water polo tournaments in the Western United States. At one time it had a whopping 56 women's teams for one weekend, and the tournament committee hopes to reach that number again soon. If you would like to visit the Sierra water polo page, click here.
