Olympus Aquatics Junior Olympics History

In 2017, Olympus took two teams: a 16U boys team and a 14U girls team. The boys team, led by Head Men's Coach Shawn Stringham, played hard fought games among the top teams in the nation, competing in the "Championship" or "Platinum" division.  The girls team, led by Head Women's Coach Alexis Courtney, started the tournament ranked 47th out of 48 and after 4 days and 10 games, the team moved up to 26th place and won the silver medal in the “Classic” or “Gold” Division. We will again be traveling to California to compete among the best teams in the nation.

FAQs

  •  I filled out the "I'm Interested" form on the website. Do I still need to register my athlete?

    Yes, even if you filled out the "Interested" form over the past month or two, we still need you to fill out the online Registration I sent out Friday/Saturday. Remember, the deadline for registration is Monday, May 7 (but the sooner I get registrations, the sooner I can let everyone know who is on their respective teams and we can get a GroupMe chat setup :-) ).

  • How are most athletes traveling to California?

    I have only talked with a few parents but it sounds like there are some driving and some flying. If your athlete is flying alone, connect with me so we can check flight schedules to ensure pick-up.
     
  • Are there carpool opportunities from your home town to California?

    I'm sure there will be seats in cars available. I'm happy to connect people if you want to let me know if you're driving and have available seat belts for athletes looking for a ride. We use a great carpool app and I will set up the carpools that will be available on the website tournament page. Also, GroupMe will be a great way to connect up once I have rosters.
     
  • Are there other parents who are interested in sharing a room?

    I'm sure there will be parents interested in sharing a room at the team hotel or other close-by hotels. I'm happy to connect people if you want to let me know you're looking for a roommate. Also, once we have a GroupMe chat, you'll be able to connect up that way.
