Setbacks in our state, and in our community, regarding the Covid-19 virus has pushed back any reopening plans, as most have likely already discovered due to the mandatory closure of bars, gyms and other places where people gather. According to state guidelines, youth team sports are not to hold any practices or games. You may hear of clubs or facilities that are offering some practices or dryland workouts - but be very careful. Unless specifically approved by the governing body of the sport, any injuries or illness caused by these practices will likely not be covered by the club's liability insurance.
Athletes may work out on their own, and may obtain private trainers/coaches. If this is something you might be interested in, please contact Coach Dean for suggestions. I.E. Storm will not be providing any such services through the club, but can point you to private individuals who have the training and background to provide this service, possibly for a fee. If you have a pool, or know someone who is willing to let you use theirs, you may try to schedule a training session one or two days a week just to keep from going stir crazy!
At this point, the earliest likely reopening would be starting in September, and with such as fluid and fast changing situation as we are in, there is no way to know more than a week ahead of time. High school sports have been pushed into December and beyond, so if any facilities become available before that time, we will do our best to provide opportunity to practice, and perhaps play. We will continue to keep our athletes and families informed as best we are able.
I.E. Storm is an Inland Empire, California based age group water polo club with a mission to promote the game of water polo through development of athletes of all ages and any financial status. We offer programs for children as young as 5, as well as a Masters program for 20 up to 80 (and beyond). All skill levels from beginners through National Team are accepted and encouraged to participate.
