Tiger Water Polo has recently been given permission by Allegheny County to hold a water polo tournament at North Park Pool.  We have wanted to hold a summer tournament there for a long time and it seems like an ideal opportunity this year before school starts.  Please read the details below.  If you are interested please indicate your interest on this Google form ASAP.
 
Here are the basics for your consideration:
 
- The tournament will be called "Summer Sizzle".  Our goal is to have good competition in a fun, festive outdoor environment to wind down the summer but also bridge to the fall HS season.  
 
 - It will run 8a to 6p on Aug 14 and 15 and be held At North Park Pool. where we will have an all-deep 50m x 25m area of the pool.  There are wonderful spectator bleachers and a large deck area for spectators.  North Park has many family fun opportunities as well.
 
- We will field teams of 18U Boys, 18U Girls and 14U.  Each team will play 2 games per day assuming we have 4 teams per group (12 teams total).  On Sunday, we hope to seed and match teams based on how they played against each other on Sat and have a finals type of finish.
 
- Registration for 18U teams is expected to be $500 and 14U teams, $350.  North Park is obviously charging us for the pool and guards but they are also taking the door money for spectators as an entrance fee to the pool facility ($6).  And, of course as you know, there's the cost of professional referees.  
 
If you have questions, please contact me.  Thank you!
