Help Support our Athletes
Northshore Water Polo Booster Club coordinates with Northshore's Inglemoor High School Athletic Department to host Boys and Girls High School Water Polo teams. Following 18 months of COVID disruption, our young players are eager to experience high school in person and to participate in sports, including water polo. Boys Fall Season starts on August 20th. Registration is open now.
Water Polo is one of two self-funded sports in our school district and, this year, player costs rose for a number of reasons. The Booster Club fundraises to offset fees, purchase team equipment, and provide a quality sport experience for our student athletes.
Northshore Water Polo Booster Club is a Registered 501c3 (EIN #460715263). We accept secure online donations through PayPal. Check back to learn about upcoming fundraising activities and events.
Northshore Water Polo has run for many years with the agreement of the district to be self-funded, follow WIAA rules, and demonstrate growth towards the goal of one day having four individual high school teams. The Booster Club has managed the finances of the sport, submitting a budget to the school each year representing a financial plan which we both understood, and then a mix of fundraising and player fees covered the costs of pool time, referees, and coaching. These have always been costly, and it has been a goal to build the club financial strategy so that these costs were spread out across more players, with more energy for fundraising. COVID was an interruption in that growth plan, and we are working to rebuild the sport in our school district.
We were informed over the summer that due to OSPI 1660, the management of all of these costs had to shift to the lnglemoor Athletic Department which would coordinate directly with parents regarding fees. Players faced a substantial increase in fees to participate in water polo due to new union agreements for coaches and escalating pool costs.
Northshore Water Polo Booster Club will continue to fundraise to support our players and, longer term, hopes to build a stable, fully staffed organization that works to grow the sport of Water Polo within Northshore School District.
