  • LAST YEAR’S 12U Co-Ed JO’s National Championship team ONLY the Rock-Tober 2021 tournament in Mesa, Arizona is coming up. The event is not live on our CMAC website as we don’t have an exact cost yet, as we don't have a registration cost from USA Waterpolo yet. This is a 12 & Under Mixed Tournament over the weekend o f October 15-17, 2021 (I had these dates wrong iat one point) .   We have had a great time in previous years at this event!  Here is some basic information to help you make your decision whether to commit:


  • USA Water Polo link to the event:  

  • This is a co-ed event, and is open to all 2021 JO 12U co-ed athletes .

  • Day 1 games can start at 7:00am on Friday, so you will need to arrive Thursday. 

  • Day 1 play determines which bracket the teams will play in, Rock, Roll, Rhythm, or Rhyme.

  • For budgeting purposes:

    • Tournament Fee will be approximately $250, (remember that out of town tournaments cost more as we have to pay for coaches’ transportation and board).

    • There is typically an entrance fee for spectators, $10 daily for adults, or $25 for the tournament.

    • Here is the LINK to our block of rooms at the Residence Inn by Marriott (941 W. Grove Ave. Mesa, AZ) Book your group rate for Costa Mesa Water Polo  

      • $119 a night for 1 bedroom (has a door between the bedroom and the living room with a pull out sofa) 

      • $169 a night for 2 bedroom (2 bedrooms, plus a pull out sofa in living room)

      • We have 12 -1 bedroom suites and 4 -two bedroom suites being held.

      • They have a full hot breakfast and were great about setting out breakfast a little early for one of our earlier games, and they have some common areas that we were able to procure and hang out as a team family.

    • There has typically been a team social for the athletes on Friday night, which is included in the tournament registration fee,  where the players are fed pizza and there is music and fun at the pool where the tournament is held.  

    • Most likely a potluck team dinner/BBQ will be planned for Saturday night at the common area of the hotel, details to follow.   



See you on deck!



As ALWAYS, if you have any questions, PLEASE respond to this email.  I will do my best to get answers for you and fix any problems. 

Have a great week and GO CMAC!!
