WALNUT, Calif. (AP) — USA Water Polo has signed a memorandum of understanding with Mt. San Antonio College that covers the organization's use of the college's new aquatics complex.
The partnership was announced Wednesday.
The U.S. men's water polo team is training at the college in preparation for the Paris Olympics. USA Water Polo says it also plans to hold test events for its men's and women's teams at the facility, along with its masters national championships and age group national selection camps.
The aquatics complex at Mt. San Antonio College has a 59-meter competition pool and a 30-meter teaching/diving pool with movable bulkheads. It also has horseshoe seating for 2,500 and the ability to add temporary seating that accommodates more than 5,000 spectators.
USA Water Polo has been working with the city of Irvine on a potential long-term home. It committed $12 million to the project in September 2022, but the city has put its new aquatic center on hold until after the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.
