Women’s Club Water Polo

I’ve recently been thinking about all the good times I’ve had at USC so far and realized that many of them were spent with my water polo team. In high school I was on the swim team for four years, but never thought I’d continue to play a sport in college. However, when my older cousin told me that his one regret from college was not joining a club sport, I decided to try one. And boy, am I glad I did! Our team is perfect. The girls are so friendly and encouraging, both in the water and out. When I joined the team, I wasn’t really aware of all the rules of water polo (and frankly, I’m still not!), but the girls have really helped me get a better understanding of the game. Each person on our team is involved in her own activities, but we all enjoy getting together for practice four nights a week to get some exercise, take a study break, and have some fun!

Our team is all about fun. Our season is during the spring, and we usually go to three or four tournaments. A couple of weeks ago we had a tournament in Santa Barbara and won all of our games there! It was beautiful! I even ran into some of my old high school friends who go to school there. I’ve only recently realized how much I enjoy this activity. I’ve made some great friends, including some fantastic seniors who I will really miss next year. I get to take a study break and get some exercise at the same time. Finally, we get to travel! Mini-vacations are awesome! Especially when winning games is involved! I get to see beautiful new places and expand my horizons beyond my Orange County/Los Angeles bubble.
