4064FW: [usauwhwomen] 2013 Women's Tournament, Oct 26-27- Sign up details!
- Jul 26, 2013This may be of interest to your female players. Britta and I went to one in Denver in 2010 and it was great! A great way to learn skills and to play in a less intimidating environment!
(I think this is the same weekend as the pot luck for men?)
(No, I am not going.)

Brigit and Poorna
Hello, all!We are excited to announce the annual women's tournament will be held October 26 and 27th in Los Angeles, California! All women hockey players, of all skills, experiences and ages, are invited to come to the only all-women's tournament of the year. The last 4 years have been awesome experiences for those who attended, and this milestone event will surely be even better!The pool will be the same pool used for Nationals and PCCs 2011:Santa Clarita Aquatics Center20850 Centre Point ParkwaySanta Clarita, CA 91350Santa Clarita is a beautiful and very safe city about 30 miles north of Los Angeles. The weather in late October varies, but you can probably expect temperatures in the 60s to 70s during the day. The pool is outdoors, with some indoor and outdoor areas to congregate between games.The basic schedule will be:
Saturday- skills clinic 9am-noon, tournament 1-6pm
Sunday- tournament 9am-3pmWe have a block of rooms available for Friday and Saturday night at La Quinta Inn & Suites Santa Clarita. When you call, mention that you are with Los Angeles Underwater Hockey, and the room rate will be $89/night.The hotel address is: 25201 The Old Rd, Stevenson Ranch, CA 91381.The best airports to fly into are LAX (about one hour from the pool) or BUR (about 35 minutes from the pool). Unfortunately Los Angeles is not a very public-transportation-friendly city, so rental cars will be necessary. There will be some limited housing and transportation available through local players, please contact me ASAP if that is something you are interested in.Everyone is encouraged to attend the clinic and everyone will play in the tournament. Teams will be put together as potluck teams so no need to put together your own. Notice that we finish early on Sunday so you can get home without too much time away from home. We will plan to have dinner together on Saturday evening for more fun times together (we usually have some fun prizes too!).There is the possibility of booking the famous LA post-tournament party bus for those who would like to stay a little longer and celebrate; it is pre-Halloween weekend after all! Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in staying Sunday night for this as well.We are looking forward to seeing all the lovely ladies of underwater hockey in sunny Southern California this fall!!!Please send me an email with your intent to attend as soon as possible so we can start planning and organizing for this fantastic event!
